It is with heartfelt sadness that the family announces the passing of Betty, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Betty passed away at VJH surrounded by her loving family. Born in Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan and raised in Palmer, Saskatchewan Betty married her high school sweetheart of 55 years. Betty and Herb were entrepreneurs and had a wide variety of businesses. Betty’s last business was being a crafter in the Vernon Farmer’s Market. She enjoyed time with her fellow vendors and selling her crafts. Betty was a devoted and lifetime member of Creative CHAOS.
Betty enjoyed dancing, playing cards, baking and spending time with her family. She had an unwavering love for all of the family pets. Being a 20 year veteran Snowbird she looked forward to her Arizona winters.
Betty is survived by her husband Herb, three daughters Cathy (Roger), Shelley (Darren) and Holly (Mike). Five grandchildren, Everett, Stacey, Ashley (Shayne), Briana, Felicia, one great grandchild, Gracie, her brother Kenny (Linda) and her dog Anderson. Betty was predeceased by her parents and a brother.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the nurses and Dr. Cooper at VJH and family physician, Dr. Mandrek for their care and compassion.
Respecting Betty’s wishes there will be no funeral or memorial service. If friends so desire, memorial tributes in memory of Betty may be made directly to the SPCA.
