Remembering Betty Bell

Betty Bell—May 13,1932 - September 23, 2022

Betty Bell served as a Senior Companion for over 15 years at the Central Vermont Council on Aging. Always the person in the room who spoke up at meetings and asked great questions, she was also a great storyteller and knew how to engage people in conversation. One story she liked to tell was about a woman she visited each week who would take her on a house tour every time Betty showed up. She knew that she should just go with the flow and oohed and aahed about the various treasures her client would show her.

Betty was a delight to work with and will be missed by both her community and family.

From her obituary:

“Betty had a lifelong love of music and could strum a guitar and sing with anyone who wanted to. In her younger years she and Wendall very much enjoyed Saturday night dances at the Moose Lodge. She always enjoyed going to the beach Sunday afternoons at Groton and just any family gatherings. But most of all, Betty just liked to talk and visit with people. She was always very interested in knowing who was related to whom and if she could make a connection with her own relatives.”

The grandmother of 10, the great-grandmother of 29 and the great-great grandmother of 11. Betty is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
