Jan. 24, 1935 – July 9, 2015

Betty was an inspiration to us all. She lived life to the fullest, always with joy and laughter. An avid traveller, her family and friends never knew where her next adventure would take her. We stopped counting after 60 countries. When back at home, she loved spending time outdoors: hiking in the mountains, enjoying Saltspring and Hornby Islands, and of course spending time in her spectacular garden. A talented knitter, she was never far away from a pair of needles, or a wool shop, wherever her travels took her. She was a voracious reader, a keen debater, a good listener, and a key advisor, no matter what the topic. She encouraged us to follow our passions, and for her that was achieving her PhD in Educational Psychology and a long successful career in helping others.

She is joyfully remembered by her three children: David (Jackie), Neil (Wanda), and Catherine (Randy); six grandchildren: Stephen (Heather), Lisa (Cyrus), Sheila (Garry), Jenna, Ewan & Aidan; three great grandsons: Mason, Maddox & Maverick; her brothers: Hugh and Doug, and her sister Joan.

She was predeceased by her adventure-loving husband, Bob. We will miss you Betty, Mom, and Grandma.

A Celebration of her Life will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 10037 – 84 Ave., Edmonton, AB, on Thursday, July 16, 2015 at 11:00 am.

Betty was passionate about helping children achieve an education throughout the world, so in lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to PlanCanada.ca.
