In memory of
Betti (Wheeler) Green
Betti (Wheeler) Green Bristol - Betti (Wheeler) Green, age 74, died Wednesday, May 12, 2021, in her beautiful haven of a home. She was predeceased by her son, Jason; parents, Helen and Warren Wheeler; brother, Ronald Wheeler; husband of 44 years, Howard; sister, Margo Wheeler; and many beloved Great Danes, German Shepherds, cats, and friends. In death she went ahead of her brother, William (Wendy) Wheeler; son, Joshua (Anna Bengel); son, Jeremy (Armando Huerta); Great Dane, Eli; Russian Blue cat, Oliver; and many devoted compatriots. In life, Betti went ahead of everyone: a consummate leader, lifelong healer, and fierce advocate for all, especially women. She held nursing positions at Finger Lakes Community College and Planned Parenthood before an impressive 33 years of service as a nurse practitioner and then the Clinical Coordinator of Hubbs Health Center at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. After graduating from Genesee Hospital School of Nursing, Betti earned her Nurse Practitioner master's degree with a focus on adult health at SUNY Upstate Medical University. She made fine memories of New York City during a two-year sabbatical at the HIV/AIDS Fellowship Program in the Bronx. In 2008, Betti won the Susan Shearer Award from the New York State College Health Association for her knowledge, leadership, and profound contributions to collegiate health care at HWS and both state and national levels. Reared in Bloomfield, Betti was a competitive horseback rider who forever after took the reins. Betti was simply the boss. She laid down the law and showed the way. Cheerfully enduring the pranks and hijinks of her two boys, she taught them to grow up good. Betti adored throwing parties and being entertained; giving and opening gifts; dressing up, decorating the house for holidays; bread and cheese, grilled together especially; reading, gardening, gin; laughter and listening; opinions, salons, and conversation. She welcomed, nurtured, and saw the very best in all. Betti loved both company and quiet. Her huge circle will always cherish and admire her lively spirit, confident heart, and life of peace. Her grace, embrace, compassion, gratitude, and power set stones and moved mountains. Betti was a matriarch, hallmark, pillar, beacon, and touchstone—she did things her way: full-in, and feet first. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to an HIV/AIDS organization of your choice. Arrangements are by Johnson-Kennedy Funeral Home, Inc., Bloomfield. Condolences may be offered at www.johnsonkennedy.com .
