Bette Jane Waugh

Bette Jane Waugh

89, born in Ohio in 1921, made her home in Orange County, where she raised her children and worked in recovery of women alcoholics. She retired in Big Bear at 65 to live with her daughter, Jackie Moore (of the Hair Salon Village Hairsmith). She truly didn't retire though. She continued working with men and women, helping to establish two recovery homes in the Big Bear area. She then went into caregiving until her health wouldn't permit. She had 51 years sobriety in A.A. and sponsored many women. She was loved by many and will be deeply missed by her family, daughters Jackie Moore, Joan Jiannoni, Jean Waugh, her grandsons Mike Moore, Jeremy Jiannoni, granddaughters Casey Jane Gobel, Jessica Dodson, great grandsons Bryan Alvarez, Brandon Alvarez, Zachery Gobel, and great granddaughter Adrianna Perez. And she will be in heaven with her daughter Rebecca Lynn Neuberger, and her nephew Victor Baker. She passed at her home on Dec. 29, 2010, of heart failure. Her celebration of life will be held at Thelma's Restaurant in Big Bear City, 337 W. Big Bear Blvd., on Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011, between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
