Hilde Sue Plosker Betts

BURLINGTON, VT. — Hilde Sue Plosker Betts, 59, of Burlington, passed away in the early morning of Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, after a heroic battle with a reoccurring illness. Hilde was born in Queens, N.Y., on Jan. 10, 1954. She was the daughter of Edward William Plosker and Paula Raphael Plosker. Hilde was the third of four children; and is survived by her siblings, George Plosker of Calif., Robert Plosker of Fla., and Linda Plosker Valentine of Pa.

Hilde grew up in the strong, supportive community of the Bell Park Manor Terrace, a Jewish war veterans complex in the Queens Village section of Queens. She found a replica of that strong, supportive community as a well-loved resident of the Five Sisters neighborhood in Burlington.

Hilde attended public schools in Queens and graduated from the Martin Van Buren High School in 1971. Having had the opportunity to attend summer camps in Upstate New York as a teenager, she learned to love the northern woods, lakes and mountains. She then chose to study at the State University of Plattsburgh with an undergraduate major in Nursing. Hilde also studied the Arts, and enjoyed singing opera as well as other musical genres.

After her graduation from SUNY Plattsburgh, she traveled to Marietta, Ga., and studied Chiropractics at the Life Chiropractic College. Hilde graduated with her Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine and then returned to the northern region to begin practices in Stowe and Burlington, Vt., in the early 1980s. Hilde had a very active practice, where she was sought out by patients for her expertise with pregnant women and myofascial release. Hilde was a very caring health practitioner, and worked diligently with her patients to relieve their pain. Throughout the years of practice, she was very giving of her time and knowledge to others.

Hilde is survived by her loving son, William Betts of Burlington, who is a student at the University of Vermont. She was previously married to Timothy Betts of South Burlington. Hilde is also survived by her niece, Carla Valentine of N.J.; and nephew, Edward Valentine of Pa.
