Elizabeth J. Neokleous
September 10, 1940 – October 18, 2020
Elizabeth J. Neokleous of Bethel CT passed away on Sunday, October 18, 2020. She was 80 years old.
Elizabeth "Bette" was born on September 10, 1940 in Queens, New York. A daughter of the late Arthur and Helen Kedidji, she graduated from Long Island City High School in 1958.
A fiercely independent woman, Bette made her career as the Customer Relations Administrator at Cablevision for more than three decades and spent her retirement living in Bethel, CT.
She is survived by her sister Mary Ellen Odierna, her three children, Thomas Neokleous, Michael Neokleous and Dawn Spremulli, their spouses, seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
Elizabeth will be forever remembered for her incredible strength, her razor sharp wit and sense of humor. Her love and commitment to her family was second to none, always putting the needs and feelings of others way ahead of her own. The lives of all those lucky enough to have known her will forever be changed for the better as she left us with great memories, life lessons and inspiration.
A private Memorial Service celebrating Elizabeth's life will be held at a later date.
Funeral Services are Private

Bette was the best Mother-in-Law anyone could ask for. From the first day we met, we became friends; I will never forget that day! It was amazing how we liked and disliked so many of the same things. I have so many great memories and so many funny stories. Sometimes when she would visit we would talk about some of our memories and I usually ended up laughing until I was crying. No matter how many memories we have and how long our loved ones have lived, we are just never ready to lose them; I miss her very, very much. I love you Bette!

She will always be my Baby Sister. We shared so much, good times, sad times and many happy times. I miss her so much,
She was (and always be) a great sister. Her love of her children, and also mine, was much apart of her.
I will miss her telephone calls, with her saying hi, its me.
She is now in the loving arms of our parents. And some day we will all be together again.
Kisses, Baby Sister I love you.
