KIDD, Elizabeth Jean (nee Paul) Taken under tragic circumstances in Sidney BC on February 14, 2012. Bette was born in Govan SK on March 3, 1925. She completed Normal School in Regina, and briefly taught primary school before serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force during WWII. She later completed an Education degree from the University of Saskatchewan. She worked for many years as an educator of children and adults in Saskatoon. Bette and her husband Lloyd (deceased 2007) retired to Vancouver Island in 1979. The loving couple did a great deal of overseas leisure travel and cruising. Bette greatly enjoyed her service with the United Church, the Open Door (Our Place), and Volunteer Victoria. Her lifelong passion was singing in her church choirs, most recently in St Paul's United Church choir in Sidney. For fun, Bette sang and performed in Amica Beechwood Village's choral group. Bette is survived by her loving children Jacqueline and Richard, sister Marjorie Edwards (Nokomis SK), son-in-law Christopher, daughter-in-law Cecily, and step-grandchildren Christopher, Michael and Crystal. Bette's kind and joyful nature profoundly touched all who knew and adored her. She will be greatly missed by her extended family, her friends, and especially by us who call her World's Greatest Mom".
