Nancy and I are very sorry to learn of Betty’s passing. She was a good person who contributed greatly to her community. Betty and George were an inseparable couple who are now reunited. Her friends and family are left with good memories.
I was shocked to hear of Betty’s passing! She always had a ready smile and warm hug. She was so proud of Adrian and his leading music in church. Her church family will miss her greatly! May you find comfort in knowing since George’s passing ,Betty always said her family was looking after her ,so she had nothing to worry about. She loved you all deeply. May you feel God’s love surrounding you in these times of sorrow.
We will miss her especially at the back pew of our church. I will miss giving her a hug and wishing her a good day and letting her know how much she is loved and appreciated by our church family. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her! My thoughts and prayers are with her family..

To Nick, Chantelle, Fred and families,
Words cannot express how sad we are feeling about your mother’s death. Just four days before her passing Alan and I were sitting at her table chatting with her. We will truly miss seeing her across the yard from our cottage mowing her lawn and tending to her flowers. Your parents were wonderful neighbours and being next door will never feel the same again.
Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to everyone.
Alan and Marsha, Becky and Andy, Julie and Greg and boys
