Obituary Condolences

BETTE SLACK Bette Lou Slack, 94, of Henderson, and formerly of Albany, Ore., passed away Dec. 7, 2012. She was born Nov. 29, 1918, to Millard and Martha Johnston and was raised in Vancouver, Wash. She was a beautician in her working years, a profession she loved. She became a budding artist at young age and was still painting in her 80's until her eyesight failed. Bette was a beautiful soul, a devoted mother, a gentle, loving sister and a proud grandmother and great-grandmother. She had a zest for life, always ready to go as she didn't want to miss out on anything! She was a question asker, a knowledge seeker, a lover of books, movies and political debate and a witty conversationalist. Her family was the light of her life and four generations were richly blessed by her love and devotion. Bette was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Bob Slack; brother, Doug ((Ruth) Johnston; and sister, Barbara (Dan) Burgoyne. She is survived by her daughter, Mara Lee "Robin" (Gary) Sherrill); sons, Rick (Glenna) Killinger and Shawn Killinger; "like a son," Terry Bedford; sister, Priscilla (Ross) Kroessin; grandchildren, Adrienne (Dave) Barksdale, Jennifer (Craig) Burr, Camie (Michael) Breier, Chris Killinger, Mike (Stacey) Killinger, Leslie (Kai) Clancy and Joseph (Carrie) Killinger; and 18 great-grandchildren. Bette was a dear aunt to nieces and nephews; and treasured friend to so many who knew her. Our family thanks Solari Hospice Care for their wonderful, compassionate care and the wonderful caregivers at Diamond Retirement Living. A private gathering in Oregon is pending. If you choose, donations may be made in her memory to Guiding Eyes for the Blind, 611 Granite Springs Road, Yorktown, N.Y. 10598 or www.guidingeyes.org
