Obituary for Bette Engel

Bette J. Engel
Of Long Grove

Bette Engel was born on March 5, 1926 in Chicago, Illinois. She died Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at Arboria in Long Grove, Illinois.

For most of her life Bette was a homemaker. She was proud to host holiday and many family gatherings. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as they were the center of her world. Many were drawn to her confident and strong-willed personality. She formed friendships effortlessly and welcomed the company of people of all ages.

Bette enjoyed playing bridge, reading, shopping and watching Jeopardy. Each summer and fall, she faithfully followed her beloved Chicago Cubs and Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Bette is survived by her daughter Susan Sparks; her son Richard (Jill) Engel; her grandchildren Daniel Engel, Jennifer (Stacey) Staten, Steven (Lindsay) Sparks, Kathryn Sparks, Regina Engel, Thomas Engel, Anthony (Megan) Engel; and 7 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband Henry W. Engel, her parents, John T. and Pauline (nee Tauss) Palmer, her son Gary, and her brother John Palmer.
