May 25, 1937 – Oct. 19, 2011. Mum was diagnosed with cancer October 3rd and passed away peacefully October 19th in White Rock, BC, where she had lived for 43 years. Betty, Bett, or Betty-Lou depending where you knew her from was born in Port Alberni to Lucy and Rowland Tombs. Betty moved to Victoria as a young woman in the 1950’s before heading to Vancouver where she met her husband Lars and many great friends. Lars and Betty were married in January 1969 during a rare snow storm in Port Alberni. They settled in Crescent Beach a great community to enjoy and raise their family. Betty was a wonderful mother and caregiver throughout her life. She was active in the Anglican Church for most of her life and had many friends throughout the community. Mum had been ill for several years but the cancer diagnosis at the end of her life was unexpected. We take comfort in knowing all her suffering has ended. Betty was predeceased by husband Lars (2008) and is survived by sons Rowland (Moira) and Per (Andrea); grandchildren Lucy and Larson; brother Lloyd (Marg) in Port Alberni. No service by request. Donations in Betty’s memory can be made to Lung Association of BC, BC Cancer Agency or local charity of your choice. Condolences may be offered at www.victoryfuneralcentre.ca
