Betty Mensinger, (Drew)
May 18, 1929 – May 17, 2010
We are sad to announce the passing of our dear mother, Betty Ewart Mensinger. Betty was a strong, beautiful liberated woman who will be greatly missed by her family and many friends. She was a woman ahead of her time who always believed in equality and equity. Betty graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1950. She was born in Saskatchewan and lived in Ontario after she was married but has lived in the White Rock/S.Surrey area for many years. Betty was an award winning quilter, long time member and past president of the Peace Arch and Fraser Valley Quilters Guilds. She was also a member of the Serendipity Stitchers needlepoint club. Betty exercised at the South Surrey Recreation Centre with the early crowd and walked the White Rock promenade daily. She was an avid wine maker and was well known for her positive attitude and quick wit. Betty retired from the Surrey Credit Union in 1992 and she had a positive impact on the many people she came into contact with both personally and professionally throughout her life. She is survived by her three children, Murray (Bev), Jean (Berdie), Diane (Aaron), six grandchildren Diane (Konrad), Zach, Martine (Tanqueray),
Nina, Austin, Zoe and two great grandchildren, Maggie and Jack. A celebration of life will be held in her honour on Friday June 11, 2010 at 2pm at the Pacific Inn (Pink Palace) in White Rock.
