Elizabeth "Betty" Leslie Chabott, 67, a long-time resident of Keene, NH passed away at her home on Friday, March 3, 2017, with her husband, two daughters and oldest granddaughter at her side, after a battle with cancer.

She was born in Dover, NH on April 29, 1949, the daughter of Edward and Shirley Leslie. Betty was a 1967 graduate of Dover High School, and a 1971 graduate of Keene State College.

For many years she worked as the Office Manager and bookkeeper for the Apothecary in Keene.

Betty enjoyed spending time with family and friends as well as helping others whenever she could. She found great enjoyment in gardening and spearheaded the creation of the first hosta garden in downtown Keene. She had the gift of a "green thumb" and was able to nurture plants back to health.

She is survived by her husband of 45 years, Theodore (Ted) Chabott of Keene; her two daughters, Leslie Muska and her husband Simon, and granddaughters Taigan and Makenna, of Enfield, CT; Katie Moriarty and her husband Jason, grandson Braden and granddaughter Julia of Simsbury, CT; and her sister Judy Furlong of Kingston, NH. She was predeceased by her parents Edward and Shirley, and her brother, Richard (Dick) Leslie.

A private Celebration of Life will be held by family and friends to remember her through a time of sharing and stories. She will be laid to rest with her parents in Dover, NH, at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her name to Home Healthcare, Hospice & Community Services c/o PO Box 564 Keene, NH. 03431.
