Elisabeth Harrington Deveraux - Obituary

The News Journal, Wilmington, Delaware, 04 Jan 2008, Fri, Page 16

"Elisabeth H. Deveraux (Bettie) Elisabeth H. Deveraux (Bet-tie) passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 31, 2007 at the Masonic Home of Delaware after a lengthy illness. She was the daughter of the late Lawrence J. and Ruth W. Harrington of Wilmington, DE. Bettie was a graduate of Sanford School and Beacom College and worked for 30 years as a secretary in the Textile Fibers Department of the Dupont Company. She retired in 1971 to become a homemaker. She was a Life Member of the Dupont Coun try Club where she often played golf with her husband or her girlfriends. Bettie's favorite sport was bowling which she enjoyed for many years as a member of the Dupont Country Club Women's Bowling League. She especially appreciated the camaraderie of the league members. Failing health denied her that pleasure. She is survived by her husband, Harold D. of 58 years and her sister, Jean Miller of West Chester, PA. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Masonic Home of Delaware for their exceptional kindness and understanding in dealing with Bet-tie's illness. We also want to thank members of Heartland Hospice who assisted with her care during her final days. Services will be private at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in memory of Bettie to the Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research, Inc. 110 Possum Hollow Rd.. Newark, DE 19711 or Sanford School P.O. Box 888, Hockes-sin, DE 19707-0888. Arrangements by CHANDLER FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY 302-478-7100"
