Mrs. Helen Bettle of Amelia, recently celebrated her 100th year on March 24, 2018. Mrs. Bettle was joined in the celebration by 5 generations of family and her caregivers and friends at Eastgatespring of Cincinnati.
Helen was born in 1918 and couldn’t believe the day had finally come when she turned 100 years young. Helen was born in Nicholsville, Ohio from immigrant parents from Romania. She met her husband George, from New Richmond, and they married in 1937. Helen and George have five children. After losing their grocery store in the flood of 1937, the family moved to Locust Corner to be near their family farm, George then secured a career with Milacron and they family moved again, to Amelia, Mrs. Bettle became very involved in her church, Amelia United Methodist, and also is a very devoted mother to her children.
After raising their children the couple decided to become snow birds and spend half the year in Florida. The couple enjoyed traveling and sunshine for 18 years until George passed at the age of 79, in 1993. Mrs. Bettle found a home at Eastgatespring, where she loves to play Bingo and visit with friends. Helen’s brother lived to be 100 and he told her she had to do the same, she accepted the challenge!
Happy Birthday, Helen, from your friends at Clermont Senior Services!
