Elizabeth "Betty" Teabo, age 93, passed away peacefully at her home in Lincoln, Massachusetts surrounded by the love of her dearest family members. She grew up in Jefferson, Maine with six siblings, resided in New York City, and eventually found her home in Lincoln, MA where she met and married her beloved husband of 64 years, Prince "Bud" Teabo, who preceded her in death.
Betty was a member of St. Anne's in the Fields Episcopal Church. She served on their Altar Guild for over 50 years, taught Children Sunday school, and mentored many others. She worked with her dear friend, Judy Gross, at Country Weddings in Lincoln for several decades where she exhibited her floral talents at innumerable weddings and celebrations. She was also a member of the Lincoln Garden Club. Her artistic eye and attention to detail yielded floral compositions of singular beauty that live on in photographs.
Betty loved animals and was known to take in a stray from time to time. This brought opportunity for joyful laughter from family members in response to their comedic antics.
Mom loved to cook, but rarely wrote down her recipes; all committed to memory only. With some encouragement from the family, we persuaded her to memorialize our favorites to perpetuity and we enjoy them thoroughly still. She was host to many memorable holiday celebrations, and never let anyone go home hungry.
We remember picking raspberries, apples, walks to Drumlin Farm, and car rides to Crane's Beach with friends.
Devoted to her family for so long, we became devoted to her care in her struggle with Alzheimer's. Mom leaves us now and is survived by her four sons and their spouses, David and Nadine (Rando) of Hudson, MA, Michael and Tammie (Corey) of Marlboro, MA, Timothy and Pauravi (Dalal) of Carlisle, MA, Scott and Melanie (Borromeo) of Wilmington, MA. She is also survived by sixteen grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
Family and friends will gather to honor and remember Betty on Saturday, May 21st at 2pm for a memorial service at St. Anne's in the Fields Church, 147 Concord Rd., Lincoln Massachusetts. She will be interred after the service in the Peace Garden at St. Anne's, beside her beloved husband.
