I wish to express my sincerest condolences at the passing of Betty. I loved her enthusiasm for the Holiday season and feel very fortunate that I was able to visit with her and share in her stories of her trees and special ornaments. Every year since meeting her I have trimmed my trees and decorated my home for the holidays with the same enthusiasm, however a little less “pink”. He style, class and friendship made a true impact and although she will be greatly missed, she has touch many lives with her spirit and kindness.
my deepest sympathies Peter and Family, she was a great lady.

Peter, Jill, Michael, Mason and families;
How do I express my thoughts about Betty? My mind is full of so many wonderful memories.
First of all, I want to say how sorry I am for your loss. You were so lucky to have such a vibrant, witty woman in your lives. I know it will be hard to imagine life without Betty, but I hope your many cherished memories will help you through this difficult time.
When I met Betty, it was in a business setting, but we had an instant bond and became friends. I will always cherish our many chats and time spent around Christmas, admiring all her beautifully decorated trees, and being in her yard in the summer and enjoying her chosen colours in decorating (pink, black and white), and always being in awe of her impeccable taste!
But, what I enjoyed the most about Betty was that she didn’t mince her words. You knew where you stood with Betty! She said what she meant and she meant what she said, which is something so lacking in our society today.
I am so sorry that I am unable to attend the funeral, but my heart goes out to all of you. Take time to grieve, to laugh, to cry and reminisce with each other.
With loving memories;
Marlys, Brent and Andie ❤️

I enjoyed my few visits at Christmas sharing tea and goodies and admiring her many Christmas trees and her knack for decorating inside and out. Hers was a life well lived and enjoyed. Take comfort in your many wonderful memories. Gods speed Betty. ❤️ This Christmas there will be a new pink ornament on my own tree in honour of your Mom and her love of the Christmas season. Sincere condolences, Brenda and Ken Humphrey
I will miss your mother. She brought joy into a room every time I saw her!
