Betty was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her family wrote: "Betty was born in Moscow, Idaho, and raised in Southern California. She graduated from Monte Vista High School with honors in 1962, and later that year married her sweetheart Bruce Chadwick on September 1st by the backyard pool of her parent's home in Spring Valley, Calif. They moved to Anchorage, Alaska, in 1971, where they raised their two children: Jonathan and Margie. They later retired to permanently reside on their riverfront property in Soldotna, Alaska, alongside their close family friends of 40 years, Dean and Lorna Corder. Betty was an avid reader, enjoyed puzzles, theatrical plays, the performing arts and music. She demonstrated her love and advocation of family and children through the support she provided to her church community, and through her Alaska, Humana and Alaska Regional Hospital Auxiliary volunteer work. She especially enjoyed being able to attend cesarean birth procedures in the delivery room and providing expectant fathers with some reassuring guidance and support during their baby's birth. She served two terms as President of the Hospital Auxiliary as well. Betty was a kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend and will be missed by many." She was preceded in death by her parents, Bob and Margie Bottini; mother-in-law, Nola Williams; infant sister, Margie Elaine Bottini; and father-in-law, Barratt Chadwick.
