Elizabeth Tebbetts Obituary

On Saturday, December 10th, Elizabeth J. Tebbetts "Betty," a beloved mother, grandmother and

great grandmother peacefully passed away. She was 87 years old, two days shy of her 88th birthday.

Born to Joseph Marchand and Mildred A. (Geyer) Marchand was the oldest of their eight children. She was the

former wife of Richard T. Tebbetts. Betty is predeceased by her oldest daughter Cynthia E. Branchaud. She

is survived by her three remaining children, daughter Lisa J. Nelson and her husband Michael Nelson of

Southborough, daughter Ellen T. Sora and her husband Brian Sora of Sutton, and her son Richard

S.Tebbetts of Auburn. She is also survived by her 8 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.  

Betty was a scout leader, taught Sunday School, a school secretary, and worked at TD Bank of

Framingham for many years. She was a member of the First Community Church of Southborough. Betty

was an avid lover of animals especially dogs and horses. She loved going to horse shows and watching

her children and grandchildren ride. She loved to work on jigsaw puzzles, crosswords and word

searches. She used to say it was "to keep her mind sharp." She adored butterflies and cardinals and had

them displayed always. 


Betty was known by all who knew her for her warm, loving, and generous spirit.  She was an amazing

mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was the hardworking and caring matriarch that held

our family together. She will be remembered for her love, joy and zest for life that she brought with her

everywhere she went. She will be truly missed.
