Betty J. (Freeman) Shoemaker, 89, of Claremont, NH, passed away on May 7, 2021, at Valley Regional Hospital.
Betty was born April 19, 1932, the daughter of Raymond and Norma (Weston) Freeman: She was a 1950 graduate of Stevens High School and in 1953 graduated from Mary Hitchcock School of Nursing as a registered nurse.
Betty enjoyed tennis, golf, bridge, and cribbage; she was a mastery of crafts, including quilting and basket making. She was a remarkable cook who enjoyed preparing fabulous meals and entertaining with friends and family and she could always put a smile on your face with her great sense of humor which surely will be missed.
Betty was predeceased by her husband of 45 years, Dr. Robert C. Shoemaker II, and brother-in-law, Dr. Albert Romano.
She is survived by two sons: Dwight Chellis and his wife, Caroline of Fitchburg, MA, and Stephen Chellis and his wife, Amy of Holiday, FL, and a daughter, Kristen Chellis with whom she lived. Two stepchildren, Robert C Shoemaker III of Warner, NH and Susan Shoemaker of Madison, GA; five grandchildren, Daniel, Robert VI, and David Shoemaker, Kyle and Morgan Edwards; one sister, Nancy Romano of Agawam, MA and two nephews, Michael and Christopher and one niece, Linda.
There will be no services at this time. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
The Stringer Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
