Obituary for Bette Shenker

Bette Shenker, formerly of Newburgh, December 25, 1925 – June 25, 2019

Bette was the oldest of 2 children of Ruth and Bernard Port of the Bronx. She was a fun loving and social person. She met her husband Marty at a summer camp just after WWII when he was done with his service, where they were both counselors and subsequently married and moved to Central Valley, New York where they raised beef cattle and cornish hens. She was an old fashioned stay-at-home Mom and housewife supreme and took her job seriously and did it well. They moved to New Windsor with their only daughter, Ilene. Bette was a Girl Scout Leader and was a member of the Sisterhood of Temple Beth Jacob in Newburgh. She got a job at Caldor in New Windsor and made long lasting friends there, which she did everywhere she went. She was friendly with all of the neighbors who met weekly for wine and cheese and parties and trips. She joined a bowling league and played Mahjong with another group of friends weekly.
She remained independent into her 80’s and then moved to Montgomery with her daughter and family where she passed away at the ripe old age of 93 just from plain old worn out parts.
She was predeceased by her younger brother Edward and her parents and her loving husband Marty. She is survived by her daughter Ilene Castaldo and husband Blaise, her grandchildren Elizabeth Castaldo and husband Joseph Flood, Tracie Castaldo and her fiance Jason Olensky, and Kimberly Castaldo and her partner David Dumont. She was also a loving and doting great-grandmother to her surviving great-grandchildren Phoebe Flood and Avery and Natalie Dumont.
