Betty Catherine Dove, 79
REHOBOTH BEACH -- Betty Catherine Dove of Rehoboth Beach died of respiratory failure Friday, March 7, 1997, in her home. She was 79.
Mrs. Dove was born Oct. 30, 1917, in Columbus, Ohio.
She was a partner with her husband in Vinton W. Dove Concrete Contracting Company, where she was active in the management and administration of the company from its founding in 1946 until their retirement in 1981.
She was active in playing and teaching the classical guitar. She played for Segovia, who then asked her to come to his school in Italy in the summer of 1959, but because of her obligations to her business and her children, she declined his invitation. She regretted not accepting for much of her later life. At the Request of the American University in Washington, D.C., she founded a program for teaching the classical guitar at the university in the early 1960's. It was the first program of its kind in the U.S. She did everything from setting up curriculum to teaching.
SL: OBIT12 in March 1996, and a daughter, Donna Dee Scaro, in 1993.
She is survived by two sons, Richard Guy Dove of Lindsborg, Kan., and Vinton Guy Dove of Indianapolis, Ind.; a brother, Wilson P. Collins of Annandale, Va.; a sister, Eileen Clark of Chevy Chase, Md.; two grandsons, Vinton Pauld Dove and Robert Allen Dove, both of Indianapolis; three granddaughters, Linda, Holly and Nicole Scaro, all of Elkhorn, Wis.; and a great-grandson, Zachary Dove of Indianapolis.
Service will be 10 a.m. Thursday, March 13, 1997, at the Epworth United Methodist Church, 20 Baltimore Avenue, Rehoboth Beach. The Rev. David Baker will officiate.
Friends may call 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, at the Parsell Funeral Home, Atkins- Lodge Chapel, 1449 Kings Highway, Lewes.
