Not sure what to say?

Robyn, Cindy, Justin and families,

The tribune written by Michelle speaks volumes about your mother's (grandmother's) character, the way she led her life and the kind of loving person she was. She made this world a better place, and is now moving forward to continue her good work in Heaven.

May your memories and family love give you comfort and peace.

We have lost a good friend, but will always have fond memories of Betty.

Becky & Mike

From her grandaughter:

Elizabeth Jean Allen (nee Shand), better known as Betty, was born December 10, 1922 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to two Scottish immigrants, Harold and Elizabeth. She grew up close with her two brothers, Ian and Neil, skating to school in the winters and summering in cottages along the aqueduct from Lake of the Woods to Winnipeg that her father designed. Betty was a talented dancer, singer, actor, and swimmer, earning honors in all as she grew.


Robyn, our prayers are with you and your family. May the Peace of the Lord be with you always.
