Bette J. Hamlin, 83, of Riverside, California, went to be with the Lord on June 5, 2018, following her battle with cancer. She was originally from Chelsea, Maine, and graduated from Cony High School in Augusta, Maine. She then went on to graduate from Central Maine General Hospital’s Radiology Technicians program. She worked as an x-ray tech for 26 years. Bette married the love of her life, Herbert Hamlin, August 15, 1969. They both worked at the Augusta State Hospital for many years and then traveled, worked, and lived in many states throughout the U.S. Bette loved to dance to Big Band music and did so, often, for many years. She was a lover of cooking, jigsaw puzzles. She also had a love for dogs. Especially those she owned throughout the years: Shingo, Caesar and Addie. Bette loved socializing and had many friends all over the U.S. Bette always had a great sense of humor despite her many health issues, and was always eager to share a smile and a joke or two. Bette will certainly be missed by many!
