I was saddened to read of Bet’s passing. She was a “lady” in all respects. Fun to talk to and be around. Her smile was always present. Take comfort in knowing she will be missed. God Bless.
John, Joan, and family
l remember your mom so well through the years. When we were teenagers, many parties were held at your house and we behaved like perfect ladies when she was around. She made us all feel so welcome at your home.
Then after nursing school, I came home to QGH and worked with her there for many years. I learned from her and may have offered her some bits of advice too.
She was a lovely lady and you were lucky to have her for so many years. You will have lots of wonderful memories!
Norma & Leon
Sorry to hear of Bet passing. When ever we met she spoke of the times when we were children and played at her home. and how double joined we were. Asking if I still could wrap my legs around my head . lol Can one imagine.She truly enjoyed having us. And I always enjoyed our talks. Our deepest sympathy to the family. RIP Bet.
I’ve only known Bet for the three years we have lived next door, but I could tell from our many conversations that she was incredibly proud of her family and that you were in her thoughts as she went about her day. I’m honored to have known her. Please accept our deepest sympathy.

It was a very say day when your mother moved on, but I know she is very happy to be back with Lloyd. I enjoyed out weekly visits so much and will miss them. However, her spirit is now free yet it will always be with us all. She was a grand lady and lived a good life and was so proud of all her family. Do remember the good times, it helps to ease the pain. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you and give you peace.

Joan, Richard, Gayle, John and Family.
I can only share my deepest sincere sympathy for the loss of your mother. Bessie was a true treasure, the most beautiful flower in a garden that stood out higher than the rest. The six months I got to know Bessie and grow to love her she truly showed me what life was really about and taught me so much. She showed me how to do needle work and even though she couldn’t do it her self last going off she found so much enjoyment in watching me do it. She will always hold a very special place in my heart that will never go away. Ill hold the memories we had close forever. I’d like to thank Bessie’s family for allowing my self and a great bunch of girls for getting to know and work with Bessie. May you find so peace in knowing your Mom was a wonderful woman who is now flying higher than the clouds and dancing with Lloyd in the stars.
So sorry to read of your mother’s passing. Cherish your memories of her. May God’s compassion, love, strength sustain you now and in the days to come.
Trust you and Gail are doing well. I have great memories of you.
Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear mother.
Sincerely : Jim and Freda Fader

Over the years we visited Aunt Bet many times and talked on the phone often. We had also done the same when Uncle Lloyd was alive. We were able to visit them/her more often when we came to the old Wagner family homestead in Port Mouton. Now that we live in Ontario it has been harder to visit, but we did spend an afternoon with her in the Summer of 2012 when we were vacationing in Nova Scotia.
She was Barry’s last remaining aunt, and the last of her generation in the family.
Condolences to the family,
(Nephew) Barry and Marilyn

We love you Grammy. You will always be with us.
Thank you everyone for your kind words.
