She was the mother of John and Adam Spellman. Bettie, her husband and two sons relocated to Cranston in 1960, and she remained a resident of Edgewood for the rest of her life. There, she pursued her avocations of gardening and needlecrafts. As a child, Bettie entered first grade a year early, at age five, after reading aloud 'The Ugly Duckling' for the principal. She lost her hearing to spinal meningitis at the age of ten and subsequently attended the American School for the Deaf in Hartford, Ct, graduating at the age of 16. Bettie attended Gallaudet College, Washington, DC, entering with the class of 1953, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1971 and a Master of Arts degree from California State University, Northridge in 1972. She was the first person in her family to attend college, and, when she completed earning a BA degree from URI Adult Extension in 1971, the first in her family to graduate. On completing work for a Master of Arts degree from California State University, Northridge, she was one of a handful of deaf women in the United States to hold a Master's degree. During the following 20 years, Bettie Spellman was an administrator, an instructor (1972 - 1974), a Supervising instructor (1974 - 1976), Director of Adult Services for the Deaf (1977 - 1986), Director of Sign Language Instruction (1977 - 1991) and Transition Coordinator (1986 - 1991) at the Rhode Island School for the Deaf. She acted on her lifelong belief in the value of education to make possible self-sufficiency and betterment, for society as well as for the individual. She taught and mentored hundreds of all ages. Many of 'her kids' were newly arrived in the United States or newly arrived in the world of deafness, and she served as their initial conduit into the worlds of English, American Sign Language, and the culture at large. Bettie held a number of positions at the school. Among the most vital, she coordinated a program to teach American Sign Language to teachers and other administrators at the school. The course produced a generation of skilled signers. As Director of Adult Services for the Deaf and Transition Coordinator, she provided job and educational counseling, legal services, coordinated interpreting services, and assisted with all aspects of post-educational life for Rhode Island's deaf community. With her husband, John, who was also deaf and a graduate of Gallaudet and Cal State Northridge, Bettie worked to secure passage of a law by the Rhode Island Legislature ensuring that deaf people have the same rights to interpreters as non-English speakers. Bettie Spellman was a member of many organizations including the Access Board of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Mass from 1978-1993, the Access Board of the Rhode Island School of Design Museum from 1980-1993, the Rhode Island Commission on the Deaf and Hearing Impaired from 1979-1991, the advisory Board of the National Captioning Institute, Fall Church, Virginia from 1981-1988.
