Obituary

Betty M. Street, 90, was taken home by the Lord on Monday, January 24, 2022.  She passed peacefully surrounded by her family. 

 

Betty was born on May 31, 1931, in Portland.  She spent all of her growing up years in Yarmouth, graduating from North Yarmouth Academy a year ahead of schedule.   She was the daughter of Edward and Karin MacKinnon. 

 

Engaged at the age of 16, she married Alden Street on June 11, 1950. They were married 71 years.  For their 70th wedding anniversary they renewed their vows with friends and family.  

 

Together they raised four children – Karen (James Moulton) of North Yarmouth, Terri (Dean McIsaac) of Brookfield, MA, Susan (Chris Kerner) of Sula, MT and Erik Street (Judy) of Gray. 

 

Grandchildren are Jenny (Moulton) Chien, Amy (Moulton) Boutwell, Adam McIsaac, Scott McIsaac, Ben Kerner, Katie (Kerner) Reeves, Danny Street and Jacob Street. She also had nine great-grandchildren.  

 

Betty was first and foremost a homemaker. After her children were pretty much grown, she joined her husband in the day-to-day operations of Street Cycles in Falmouth.  Those administrative skills were put to good use again after moving to Strong.  Betty served as the secretary at Mount Abram Regional High School for ten years.  Following retirement, Betty and Alden spent eight years on the road enjoying their fifth wheel and all the places it took them. They made many wonderful friends and have tons of great memories. They also enjoyed several cruises.  In their later years they made their home in Windham. 

 

Betty also enjoyed quilting having made a quilt for all her children and grandchildren.  She enjoyed cooking and celebrating holidays with her family.  She was an avid reader and loved doing woodworking projects with her husband. She had a quiet faith in her Lord and Savior and enjoyed attending Eastpoint Christian Church when she was able.  

 

In later years Betty struggled with Parkinson’s disease.  It limited her mobility but never her spirit.  She was one tough lady who never complained. Alden lovingly cared for her in their home for many years until it became too much for him.  

 

We would like to thank Ledgewood Manor in Windham for their excellent and loving care of Betty where she lived the past two plus years.  The staff was more than wonderful to both Betty and Alden.   Ledgewood became a second family, and we will be forever grateful to them.

 

There will be a Celebration of Life for Betty later in the spring.
