Elizabeth (Betty) Jane (Devost) Delisle of Derrah Street passed away in her sleep on Monday, March 13, 2017, at St. Vincent de Paul Rehabilitation and Nursing Center following a brief illness. She was 84 years old.
Born on August 28, 1932, in Berlin, she was the daughter of Alfred and Elizabeth (McKinnon) Devost, and was a life-long resident of Berlin. She graduated from Berlin High School, enjoyed spending time with her dad, loved to knit, and was a telephone operator.
On October 1, 1955, she married the love of her life, Henry (Buddy) Delisle. Together they raised five children.
Betty’s greatest love was her family. She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Her true companion was her husband Henry. Together they would ride their motorcycle and travel around the north country. She always found a way to make his hobbies her hobbies. As Bud would tackle projects around the home, Betty was there by his side, holding the light, lifting her side of the board, or passing him whatever was needed, making sure he was safe.
Her home was the center of her life. Making it homey was important to her and it was where she most wanted to be. She loved to be surrounded by her family, making special meals, playing games with her grandchildren, sitting on her swing in the backyard, and caring for all of the family pets.
Besides her parents she is predeceased by her brother Donald and son-in-law Robert Buteau.
