Bette Jean (Dean) Little of Sisters was born August 8, 1927 and passed on July 8, in Idanha, Oregon.

Bette was born in Dallas, Texas, and raised in Ada, Oklahoma. She graduated from East Central University in Ada. She taught school in Kansas and California for 40 years before retiring to Oregon. She married three times and out-lived them all.

She is preceded in death by a brother, a child, a grandchild and a great-grandchild.

She is survived by four children, 10 grandchildren, and 19 great-grandchildren. With her third husband (G.V. Little), six adult children and their descendants joined the family.

Our beloved matriarch is returned to Oklahoma to rest with family. This lovely Christian woman is a loss to family, friends and the world.
