Betty Lou was such a big part of my childhood memories. I remember her and the kids visiting during the summer and for some holidays. She always had such a beautiful smile, eyes that would light up a room and her bubbly laugh. Family was the center of her world and everyone was blessed to be part of it. I will miss her but I know she is with God and family who have already passed on. Rest peacefully 🙏🏻

Biographie

If anyone ever cared, really cared for someone else it would have to be Betty Lou Estevanez. She was a warm hearted and well liked individual, and these wonderful traits came easily to her because she was such a sociable and amiable person, someone who was always making certain that those around her had whatever they needed. Betty was a talkative person who was tactful at all times but typically said what she meant.

      Betty was born on Memorial Hospital in New London, Connecticut. She was the daughter of Elizabeth Spring and Alfred Horatio Tarr. Betty was raised in Welaka, Florida. During her childhood she learned to be reliable and respectful. Betty was an obedient child who wanted to win the favor of others. She found it easy to show sympathy and to perform kind acts for others. These admirable qualities would become a part of Betty's personality throughout her life.

      Though Betty was frequently the one to initiate games and activities with her family, she was also quite often the family member who took the role of referee. Betty was a peace-maker with an ability to resolve all sorts of family conflicts. In fact, Betty worked conscientiously to keep those typical family spats at bay. Betty was raised with two siblings. She had one sister, Mollie, and one brother, Jimmy. Betty and her siblings had the typical rivalries while growing up, but they cared deeply for one another.

      As someone who reveled in the sheer joy of her experiences, Betty was always enthusiastic about new adventures. Although she had an exacting nature, Betty was always tactful. One thing Betty will certainly be remembered for is that, when she got up in the mornings, she was ready and raring to go. As a young girl, Betty had a number of interests and was an active child. Betty took part in card and board games. She was a FFA. In her spare time she liked listening to music and rollerskating Betty's memorable achievements included.

      For Betty, the school routines were never a problem although she generally preferred variety to structure. She seemed to be able to start a project and work right through to its completion. And she was able to do it quickly and efficiently. Betty was also adept at details. Betty was very observant and was generally quick at picking up new things. She graduated from Key West High School in 1962. She enjoyed some courses more than others, having favorite classes and teachers. Her favorite class was math. The teacher she enjoyed learning from the most was Mrs. Reader.

      There was one thing that all of Betty's friends knew and will still remember, and that is that she was a talker. She could pretty much talk to anybody about anything. This quality is one of the primary reasons that Betty was such a popular person throughout her life. But Betty was also dependable, loyal and trustworthy. Betty was the kind of person who simply radiated good fellowship. While she maintained personal standards and her own personal values, Betty was very accepting of others. With a distinct skill for working things out, Betty was often the person who would organize events. In fact, Betty was fairly comfortable playing the role of “host” for just about any occasion. When Betty made friends, she made true and lasting friendships. While growing up, some of her best friends were Penny Dollar, Marie Bassford. Later in life, she became friends with Betty Cooley, Mary Sauls, Linda Ferrante, and Sandy Quillen.

      Betty was a faithful and loving person. Some would even call her sentimental and a romantic at heart. Her kindness and consideration radiated an aura of warmth to those around her. Betty cared for what others thought and carried that into her marriage. On July 1, 1966 Betty married Henry Paul Mohr and Felix Estevanez at Grace Methodist Church of West Palm Beach, Fl. Compassionate and devoted, Betty worked hard to make her new life partner happy.

      Harmony was important to Betty and she made every effort to maintain it with her family. Betty was blessed with three children, Two sons, Donald and Joesph, and one daughter, Tammi Jo. They were also blessed with six grandchildren, Clinton, Dakota, Madison, Savannah, Dustin, and Faith. Betty was always conscious of the feelings others had. She was reasonable and understanding. As a result, Betty was quick to solve disputes and did so without much fuss. Her secret of success in this area was simple: Betty would listen before she would act.

      Taking her work seriously came naturally to Betty, and she expected the same from those around her. Betty was a good team player, someone who was born to cooperate with others. She was what some would call a “people person” and it was demonstrated in her good communication skills. Betty was a steady worker, one who was realistic about schedules. The kind of details that would give family members and work colleagues fits were situations that Betty handled well. She could understand the details without getting lost in the broad “big picture.” Her primary occupation was Palm Beach County School District Transportation Coordinator. She was employed for over 30 years by the Palm Beach County School Board. She brought harmony to her work environment, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done, while always maintaining respect for her colleagues.

      A methodical woman, Betty enjoyed spending time working on her various hobbies. She had no problem following all of the steps and instructions on a given project and was proud of the fact that she could have something to show for her efforts. Her favorite pursuits were crafts, knitting, canoeing.

     Her keen interest in things that affected the lives of other people led Betty to become actively involved in professional and community organizations. Because she was outgoing and worked well with others, Betty did her fair share of volunteer work. And she wouldn’t shy away from taking the lead on committees or events, either. She was a born list maker and was great at creating and sticking to schedules. In high school, Betty was a member of the FFA.

      Betty was the kind of person who would readily move into action in order to help others. She was appreciated and respected. She could find value in the opinions of others and was passionate about her own values and beliefs. Politically, Betty was an Independent voter.

     Her high moral standards and traditional values served Betty well with her faith. Religion and faith were important to her. She was a member Grace Methodist Church for 25 years. During that time, she was the Church secretary for five years and assisted with arts and crafts. She was well respected because she was such an outgoing individual who sought to help in any manner she could.

      Not only did Betty enjoy traveling, but she also seemed to enjoy planning all of those trips and vacations. She was a facilitator who could easily make up a near perfect schedule of all of the things to do and see. She rarely tired of going back and revisiting her favorite places. Favorite vacations included Colorado, the Jersey Shore, Philadelphia, and Connecticut.

      Betty was a lover of animals and cherished her pets. One of her favorites was Kelly, her Yellow Lab, who was a best friend for 14 years.

      Since it was easy for Betty to meet and get to know new people, she quickly made friends, even in retirement. Once she met those new friends, she loved sharing stories and talking about the good old days. Since she was practical and cost effective, Betty was ready when that day to retire finally came in 2006. She stayed in West Palm Beach, Florida, with her family. In retirement, she found pleasure in spending time with her family, and knitting. Even in retirement, Betty stayed in touch with her old friends and made plenty of new acquaintances. She was active in the community and felt fulfilled with the opportunities that retirement offered her.

      Betty passed away on February 12, 2020 at Under Trustbridge Hospice in West Palm Beach, Florida. Accidental. She is survived by her children Donald (Laureen), Joseph, and Tammy; her grandchildren Clinton, Dakota, Madison, Savannah, Dustin, and Faith; and her sister Mollie, and brother Jimmy. Services were held at Dorsey Earl Smith Memory Gardens. Betty was laid to rest in Dorsey Earl Smith Memory Gardens.

      Betty was a fantastic conversationalist who could engage just about anyone in a discussion. And whenever she said something, she meant it. Betty was a down to earth person, outgoing and gregarious. She was without question the type of person who enjoyed experiencing things first hand. She was practical and sensible, but what friends and family will remember her for most is the fact that she was so understanding and kind. Everyone whose life she touched will miss Betty Lou Estevanez.
