Betty is also the most remarkable aunt for 20 Corbould nephews and nieces from Saint John, NB, to Vancouver, BC. Betty earned a B.A. (UBC 1942), and a teaching certificate at the University of Toronto. She worked at Alcan (Montréal) and the University of Toronto before becoming a favourite teacher of commercial subjects at Royal York Collegiate (1961-1976) and Richview Collegiate (1978-1984) of Toronto as well as at Kenyatta College, University of Nairobi in Kenya (1976-1978). She was amongst the longest-serving members of St. George's Golf & Country Club, a longtime member at Islington United Church, past-President of the University Women's Club-Etobicoke as well as longtime volunteer for Meals on Wheels and Sleeping Children Around the World (SCAW). A world traveller to over 170 countries/7 continents including a month-long flying trip around the northern hemisphere at age 80. Always prim, proper, energetic and fun-loving, Betty was known by students, then family, as the 'Road Runner' which is more than a reference to her driving. Special thanks to the Emergency Room staff at St. Joseph's and to her longtime helpers, Gloria Nichol and Gael Hepworth. The funeral will be held at Islington United Church on Saturday, December 5, at 1:00 p.m. EST.
