Betty Jean Pellett Tribute

Betty Jean Pellett, 86, of Albany, Oregon passed away peacefully on February 20, 2024, at home surrounded by her family.   

Betty was born on November 10, 1937, in Ivy, Arkansas, to Benjamin James Vining and Frances (Holloway) Vining

Betty married Fredrick N Pellett in 1954. Together, they had four children (James) Randy, Sandra, Karen, and Deanna.  Betty had 13 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, and 7 great great grandchildren.  Betty and Fred resided in Washington State, Alaska, and settled in Albany, Oregon, in 1967.  Betty worked at Hewlett Packard, where she retired from after 20 plus years.

Betty enjoyed life to the fullest and was very active. She was an active member of the Albany Eagles. She was an avid reader, loved to bowl, enjoyed going to garage sales, and loved gardening. She also loved country music and, in particular, going to listen to her nephew and two sons who played around the valley. Betty also liked going shopping and going out for lunch or dinner.  Betty and her late husband Fred enjoyed gambling and playing cards with friends and family. She enjoyed crabbing, smelt dipping, and clam digging. 

Betty sold Avon, worked at Heaths laundry, and Albany frozen foods, and finally, she worked for Hewlett Packard until she retired. 

Betty is survived by her children, grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.  And of course, her beloved German Shepherd, Bruiser.

Preceding Betty in death was her husband Fred Pellett and sister Bennie “Rose” Wise of Albany.

Betty will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

A graveside service will be held March 8, 2024 @ 3:30pm at Willamette Memorial Park cemetery in Albany, Oregon. A celebration of life will follow.
