She will be remembered by those who knew her for her kindness, patience, sense of humour and quick wit, positivity, determination and unconditional love for her family.
Special thanks to Betty’s dedicated caregivers and nursing staff who cared for our beloved mother and grandmother for the past two years at Morgan Place, where she enjoyed participating in all activities.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private family burial will be held at Oceanview Cemetery where she will forever rest beside her beloved Gerry. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
