Betty was born in Shilbottle, Northumberland and during her childhood she lived in many places, one being North Road, Ponteland, with her father’s job as a Headteacher. Betty worked in the Civil Service and became breadwinner to her family on her father’s untimely death.

Betty was an enthusiastic member of many organisations in Ponteland. She was in the WI, serving on the executive committee for 12 years.
Betty and her husband, John, were both Presidents of Ponteland Bowling Club.

Ponteland Repertory Society played an important part in Betty and John’s life from 1967. They had so much fun rehearsing for musicals and
plays. Betty had the honour of being a Life Member of the Society and the President. She enjoyed being in the audience in later years, helping as she could and always enjoying doing the raffle ‘calling’ at performances.

Betty leaves a son, Graeme, a grandson and twin great grandchildren. She was much loved by all the family.

The Rep offers their deepest condolences to the family and our heartfelt thanks for all the work, enthusiasm and talent Betty gave to the Society over so many years.

Betty Nesbit, 16 May 1927 – 6 Sept 2023
