Bette J. Dela Fuente passed away on September 16, 2016 after suffering a sudden heart attack.
She touched many lives with her quick, warm smile, positive attitude, loyalty, and genuine fun-loving spirit. Bette was born in Vacaville, CA and graduated from Mountain View High School, where she was a majorette.
Bette married Vince Dela Fuente in 1953. They made their home in Sunnyvale, CA, where they had their two children Russell and Loren. Bette worked in San Francisco for the FBI as part of a secretarial pool, as a bank teller at American Savings and Loans in Sunnyvale, and as an aid for special needs children at Los Altos High School.
Bette was an excellent golfer and, with her husband Vince, was a member of Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton for 30 years. Bette achieved eight "Holes in One" during this time, the most recent happening this past June. Vince and Bette traveled together around the world to many countries, and if a golf course was there …they played it!
Bette is survived by her loving husband of 63 years, Vince Dela Fuente, devoted children Russell Dela Fuente of Fremont, CA, Ms. Loren Loduha of Pleasanton, CA, and granddaughter Sarah Loduha, currently attending college in Madison, WI. A Celebration of Life was held Saturday, September 17, 2016 at Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton. "In dreams I'll be with you dear tonight and I'll pray for that day when, we two will meet again, until then, Sweetheart....Aloha" ~ Harry Owens
