July 24, 1931 - April 2, 2013
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother and friend to many. Born in Torquay, England, Betty trained as a nurse and midwife prior to traveling to Toronto in 1956. There she met her beloved husband Ron and began to raise her three young children. In 1974 the family moved to West Vancouver, later settling in Deep Cove. An avid gardener, Betty could often be found digging in the yard with a smile on her face. Her beautiful gardens were enjoyed by many and rivaled by few. Later years included extensive volunteer work at the Seymour Art Gallery and Parkgate Community Center. Betty was predeceased by husband Ron (April 19,1996) and will be forever in the hearts of Sandra (Tom), Hilary, Miles (Maija), granddaughter Molly, and sisters Pat (John) and Frances. She will be remembered for her warm and happy spirit, quiet generosity, and keen sense of fashion.
We will miss you terribly.
Service will be held April 27th 2:00pm at Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Rd, North Vancouver. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the CNIB.
