Elizabeth Jean KIDD

KIDD, Elizabeth Jean

(nee Paul)

Taken under tragic circumstances in Sidney BC on February 14, 2012.

Bette was born in Govan SK on March 3, 1925. She completed Normal

School in Regina, and briefly taught primary school before serving in

the Royal Canadian Air Force during WWII. She later completed an

Education degree from the University of Saskatchewan. She worked for

many years as an educator of children and adults in Saskatoon. Bette

and her husband Lloyd (deceased 2007) retired to Vancouver Island in

1979. The loving couple did a great deal of overseas leisure travel

and cruising. Bette greatly enjoyed her service with the United

Church, the Open Door (Our Place), and Volunteer Victoria. Her

lifelong passion was singing in her church choirs, most recently in

St Paul’s United Church choir in Sidney. For fun, Bette sang and

performed in Amica Beechwood Village’s choral group.

Bette is survived by her loving children Jacqueline and Richard,

sister Marjorie Edwards (Nokomis SK), son-in-law Christopher,

daughter-in-law Cecily, and step-grandchildren Christopher, Michael

and Crystal. Bette’s kind and joyful nature profoundly touched all

who knew and adored her. She will be greatly missed by her extended

family, her friends, and especially by us who call her “World’s

Greatest Mom”.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 10 at 2:00pm, at

St Paul’s United Church, 2410 Malaview, Sidney BC. Donations may be

made to “Our Place”, or to the

church. Optionally, flowers may be sent to the church near the

service date.
