Life Story of Bette Carter Adams
October 27, 1928 - October 31, 2022
Bette was born on October 27, 1928 in Boston, Massachusetts to the late Irma Chase Carter and Henry H. Carter.
She lived in Holbrook, Massachusetts until she was in the third grade. The family then moved to East Weymouth and then to North Weymouth. Bette graduated from Jr. High School there and then moved to Maine that year to enter high school, in Old Orchard Beach from which she graduated in 1946.
Bette had one brother, Henry H. Carter, Jr. (Ted) and three half-sisters, Ellen Maureen (Mickey) Sholes, Carol Sholes and Linda Sholes and one adopted brother, Tom Carter.
On November 1, 1946 she married Walter E. Adams at her home in Old Orchard Beach with Judge Wesley Mewer officiating. They raised their two children Walter and Sherry in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, Orleans, Mass. and Blue Point, NY.
Retirement found her building a retirement home back in Maine, two doors from the home she was married in to help take care of her father and his wife in their declining years. She enjoyed the next eight years or so there, midst nature and the Adams family of nieces and nephews.
Walter became ill and Bette wished to be closer to her children, so they moved to Easton, MD. Sherry lived in Crapo, MD and Walter, Jr. resided in Gambrills, MD. Easton was about halfway between and had what she wanted in a community. Walter passed away at home and was laid to rest in the Veterans Cemetery in Hurlock, MD close to home. Bette will join her husband and will be interred at a private burial.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 4, 2022 beginning 1:00 p.m. at the Immanuel United Church of Christ, Cambridge. A reception will immediately follow the service.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Bette’s name can be sent to Talbot Hospice Foundation, 586 Cynwood Drive, Easton, MD 21601.
Arrangements entrusted to Newcomb and Collins Funeral Home, Cambridge, MD
