January 3, 2020
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother on January 3, 2020. Mom was predeceased by her parents and brother Ben, and numerous cousins. She is mourned by her five children, Judy (Peter), Debbie (Denny), Conrad, Martha (John), and Brenda; her grandchildren, Chris (Delphie), Jenny, Natalie (Mark) and Kristi; her two great-grandchildren, Keely and Lexie; and her two nieces and their families. She will also be missed by her eight step great-grandchildren who loved to spend time at Grandma Betty’s.
Betty was born and raised in Vancouver, and spent 16 years in Ottawa raising her children. She always kept in touch with her “Club” girlfriends from Kitsilano High. When she and her husband moved backed to BC, they settled in Sidney. Mom spent many hours volunteering at Silver Threads, and later enjoying friends and activities at Shoal Centre, most notably playing bridge. Mom was always thinking of others and offering to drive them to appointments, or just for a drive. She had many friends and touched even more with her quick wit and hearty laugh. She loved watching all the birds in her yard and the boats passing. “Look Mom, here comes the ferry”.
Cremation has taken place and there will be a celebration of life announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.Obituary
