Memorial

Every other week for most of 43 years, Bette Dewing wielded her column in the Upper East Side weekly Our Town like a billy club against reckless cycling, neglect of elders and other vices of modern city life. Bette graduated from Edison High School and worked as a model and big band singer. Ms. Dewing gave birth to Todd and his twin, Jeff, who also survives her. She then wrote columns about “quality of life issues” in New York City and covered everything from pedestrian safety, the contributions of the elderly to society, a return to civility, automobile and bicycle lawlessness, and the loss of neighborhood businesses, to name just a few. As posted in the New York Times and Our Town.
