FEIG -  DUCLOS

 Bettie Feig (Steinhauser) 80, died Sunday, February 15, 2004, at Elcor Health  Services, Horseheads. Born October 3, 1923 in Hornell, NY, she was the daughter of Dr. Chester A. Feig and Maude Dewey Feig. Bettie was raised in Mansfield, PA, and attended Mansfield State College, majoring in music. In 1944, she married her first husband, Robert Steinhauser of Elmira, NY, now of Canandaigua, NY. In 1971, she married Norman Duclos of Wellsburg. Both her former spouses survive her. Bettie is survived by her three children and their  spouses: sons, Howard "Steiny" and Georgie Steinhauser of Chino Valley, AZ,and Terry and Donna Steinhauser of Clarence, NY; a daughter, Lynne (Theron)Andrews of Elmira, NY; grandchildren, Marci Krantz and Erik Steinhauser of Chino Valley, AZ, Jason Andrews of Atlanta, GA, Andre and Anastasia Steinhauser of Clarence, NY; stepgrandson, Timothy Andrews of Atlanta, GA, and Jeff; two great-grandchildren; as well as several nieces and nephews. Also surviving are her beloved sister and brother, Patsy Osani of Port Allegany, PA, and Robert Feig of Virginia. Bettie was predeceased by sisters, Ruth FeigGillmore of Harrisburg, and Yvonne Zito Dewitt of Arizona. Bettie was formerly employed by Sheehans Department Store and Iszards Tea Room. She was a  member of Riverside Methodist Church. Bettie had two things she cherished most in life, her family and good music. The product of an extremely musically talented family, Bettie had a beautiful alto voice. She sang professionally, as a  ballad singer, under the name "Bettie Craig" from the mid 1940's through 1968. In  1959, Bettie appeared on the Ted Mack Show in New York, and was chosen to  tour with his band in PA and NJ that summer. She turned down a subsequent offer to continue singing professionally in New York City because being a mother   to her three children was her top priority. Thereafter, she limited her singing jobs to local engagements only, appearing often with the Charlie Tremaine Orchestra, the Charlie Ponzi Bank, and occasionally with the Sgro Brothers. She sang at  places such as Libs Supper Club, Rustic Gardens, The Castle in Olean, on the radio, for Artic League telecasts, and for many weddings and banquets in the area until 1967. Bettie was proud of her Dewey family history and educated her children about their genealogy from the time they were little. Her children will remember her as a loving mother and grandmother, who taught them about tolerance, respect, and being the best you can be. Bettie cherished any time she could spend with her children and grandchildren. She was a shy and unassuming woman filled with much kindness and grace. In her final years, Bettie was ravaged by the devastating effects of crippling rheumatoid arthritis which left her with a weakened immune system. She is finally at peace. There will be a memorial service at the Collins-Olney Funeral Home, Galeton, PA, to be  announced at a later date. Bettie will be buried with many of her ancestors in Knowlton-Elk Run Cemetery near Watrous, PA. Her family wishes to thank the nurses and staff at Elcor Nursing Home and also Southern Tier Hospice.
                  Contributions in Bettie's name may be made to the Arthritis Foundation, 1330 W. Peachtree St., Atlanta, GA 30309, or the Chemung County SPCA.
