Bette Buroccki

January 11, 1927May 3, 2021

With Gratitude and Love, we remember Bette Jane Buroccki, born in Chicago, IL on January 11, 1927, daughter of Michael J. Driscoll and Evelyn (Kellet) Driscoll. Living on in gratitude for being blessed with her love for 94 years are her son, Joseph Buroccki (Lynn), her daughter, Dr Sharon Burocchi (Dave), her grandchildren, Janelle Siciliano (Dominic), Angela Bennett (Drew), Adam Burocchi-Baker (Kayla), great-grandchildren Natalie, Ava, Maddy, Joey Siciliano; Lucas, Wyatt Bennett; and Aria Kay Baker.

Bette retired from General Motors in 1982 after many years of service. She pursued her love of art, painting, ceramics, bowling, roller-skating, tap dancing often with her friends Barbara Hoekzema and Sally Jordon. She loved to cook with her daughter, and we called Bette “the Martha Stewart of Cascade”. She enjoyed good times on her boat “The Water Lilly”. She shared many Chicago memories of ballroom big band dancing and special times with cousins Bob, Pearl, Mary Ann, Patti and Mary Helen.

Her spirit and lust for life was embraced by Emmanuel Hospice. Our Emmanuel family, Taylor, Miranda, Joan, Amber and Mike brought music, care, compassion and support, allowing her to truly continue to live life and pass with dignity, comfort and love, surrounded by family and friends.

No words can express our gratitude to her caregiver friends, Dr Barbara Stanford, Patty Hawley, Ann Larson, Amy Johnson and Diane Karel.

All of you provided comfort for Bette and now she rests peacefully in the arms of her heavenly father.
