Betty supported her kids in numerous sports, driving to and from games around Edmonton and central Alberta. Betty worked in a drapery shop in Westmount and then the United Cigar Store in Bonnie Doon where she retired and did some modest travelling, taking in tractor pulls and rodeos around the Province. She loved her dogs, Mindy and Ben who kept her company in her later years. She was happy to move into Bethel Seniors Apartment where she made many new friends.
Our sincere thank you to the staff of Good Samaritan Seniors Clinic and the Grey Nuns Hospital for their compassionate care.
