Eveleen Bettinardi Obituary

Eveleen "Bunny" Bettinardi of Palos Heights, Illinois, born November 7, 1934, passed away peacefully on October 19, 2023 surrounded by her children and their families. She was a devoted and loving wife to Donald Bettinardi for over fifty years, who preceded her in death in 2005, and never ceased expressing her deep love and desire to be with Don again one day in heaven. She was an extraordinary mother to six children; Kathy (Daniel) Angres, Bryon (Sheila) Bettinardi, Robert (Ann) Bettinardi, Kristine (Joseph) LaRocco, Joseph (Sheila) Bettinardi and James (Cathy) Bettinardi, and exemplified unconditional love for each of them always. Her home was filled with pictures of her deeply beloved grandchildren; Dana, Angela (Joe), Dominic (Kathleen), Rachel, Sam (Kaylee), Gia (Caleb), Bridgette, Joey, Nicky, Carly (Brodie), Joey, Maggie, Michael, (Hannah) Rocco, Aidan and Brianna, and great grandchildren; Anthony, Joey, Adrianna, Milania, Ellie, Matteo, Luciana, Zoe, Will and Leo. She had a favorite response to her children's confessions, "There is nothing wrong with that..."  displaying her unwavering love and support, never leaving doubt that she thought we were extraordinary. She devoted her life to her family, but left room for many friends, travel, and most significantly a deep and abiding faith that centered around Catholicism and The Blessed Mother Mary. She visited many apparition sights around the world, which deepened her faith and increased her unlimited kindness to others. She also worked side by side with her husband to start a successful business, typing invoices for him at her dining room table while her children were eating one of her homemade meals. Her countless friends included those from childhood, her years raising her children in Evergreen Park at Holy Redeemer parish, and those she met at the Cursillo. She was also a loving daughter to Jospeh and Genevieve Peuvion, and extended family was often included in the numerous celebrations in her home. She loved her nieces, nephews and step-grandchildren as fiercely as her children, and always had a kind word or a smile for others, often followed by an invitation to accept a gift from her to express her appreciation of a service or just their existence.
