She was a Battle Creek native and a schoolteacher for many grade levels within the same classroom at Battle Creek Christian school.

Later they both attended Plymouth Heights Christian Reformed Church for several years.  Bette was a supportive wife to her husband, “Bus” as he taught psychology at Calvin College. Bette was an avid sports fan for Calvin College and attended many sports games, especially basketball, enjoying the Calvin-Hope rivalry.
