You Will Be Missed
Bette (Elizabeth) Winkler, a native of Minnesota and a long time resident of Pasadena, passed away on January 27th at Citrus Valley Hospice in Covina. She was an active member with her favorite charity, the Pasadena Auxiliary of Boy's Republic, and enjoyed working at the Auxiliary's thrift shop in Altadena.
Bette served for many years as a Block Captain on Pear Orchard with the Upper Hastings Ranch Association. She was organized and dedicated, and her neighbors said she was a wonderful, caring member of our community.
Bette joins her beloved late husband, John William Winkler, who passed away in 2000. She will be missed by her family and friends.
