Better L. Shipley passed away Sunday evening, August 25, 2019 in Colonial Manor surrounded by her family. She was 94.
She was born November 21, 1924 to parents Francis “Curly” & Bertha (Lloyd) Warman in Mt. Vernon. After Bette graduated from Homer High School with the class of 1942, she married the love of her life Donald Shipley. The pair went on to work on the family farm in Homer until moving to Florida and later Arizona.
A lifelong musician, Bette owned her own organ store in Mt. Vernon for several years, where she also taught lessons. She later began teaching driving lesson for AAA and retired in 1985.
Not only was Bette a musician but also an artist, and she took great pleasure in painting. Art was a very important part of Bette’s life and she will be remembered by all of her watercolor paintings for years to come.
She is survived by her son Robert Shipley of Howard, and her grandson Nathan Shipley of Loudonville.
In addition to her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her parents and a son Stephen Paul Shipley.
