Elizabeth Rose Dructor "Bette" R.N. (nee Scopinich) passed away peacefully on June 6, 2019 , surrounded by her family.  She is the beloved daughter of the late Giordano and Elizabeth (nee Hetzer) Scopinich. Devoted mother of Joseph G. Dructor Sr. (Maureen) and Lisarose Dructor Prybella (Dave Driscoll). Loving Grandmom of Joseph Jr., Emma, Megan, Angelo, Dominic, and Alexandra. Dear sister of Gordon Scopinich (Rosemary) and Christina Hensler (late Richard). Sadly missed by her nieces and nephews.

Bette graduated from John W. Hallahan Catholic High School for Girls and Episcopal Hospital School of Nursing. She was a longtime nurse manager for Northeastern Hospital and then for St. Joseph's Manor until she retired a few years ago. In her downtime she loved to fish and enjoyed being anywhere near the beach and ocean, especially with her family.

She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
