AUBURN | Betty Cook Vitetta, 88, of 1391 Clark Street Road, Auburn, was united with the loves of her life on Monday, Jan. 28, 2013, her late husband, Anthony, who died in 2002 and beautiful daughter, Barbara, who died in 2009. This reunion came after an 18-month courageous battle with cancer in Auburn Community Hospital, with her loving family at her side. She never gave up. She continued to help her family in the businesses that they operated, the Lakeview Golf Club and the Starlite Lanes, right to the very end. Until her late husband, Anthony's retirement in 1993, she owned and operated the Italian Village, the Auburn Golf and Country Club and Starlite Lanes. She is survived by five grandchildren, Cindi (John) Mendillo, Tina (James) Casbarro, Toni Youtt, Renee Smith and Beth (Joe) Houck, all of Auburn; 11 great-grandchildren, Adriana, Michael, Kiley, Thomas, Teresa, Gennifer, Jamilyn, Jimmy, Veronica, Johnny and Jacob; one great-great-granddaughter, Alexis; one brother-in-law, Bill Gabak; three sisters-in-law, Mary Piccirillo, Catherine McLaughlin and Georgine Rosata; several nieces and nephews and her favorite companion, Kiley's black lab, Tyson. In addition to Anthony and Barbara, Betty was predeceased by two brothers, Edward and Calvin â€œDutchâ€? Cook and two sisters, Jane Gabak and Mildred Cook. Friends are invited to join the family for calling hours from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday, in the Cheche Funeral Home Inc., followed immediately by services at 3 p.m. in the funeral home, 1778 Clark Street Road. Entombment will be in St. Joseph Mausoleum. Betty was an avid golfer and bowler and loved to travel. She truly enjoyed her group of girls that remained so close to her and brought so much happiness to her. She looked forward to the nights that the guys bowled in the various leagues that she kidded around with so much. The enjoyment she received from all these things above pale compared to the pleasure she received when surrounded by her loving family. Betty thoroughly enjoyed attending her great-grandchildren's sporting events and especially loved to follow her great-grandson, Thomas' endeavors in the military. She was lucky enough, through her great-granddaughter, Kiley's efforts to meet with renowned country singer Tim McGraw. She will be fondly remembered and sorrowfully missed. As for Betty's personal desire, because of her love for cooking and that everyone always has enough to eat; contributions may be made to the Food Bank of one's choice.
