In Loving Memory of Betty Ann Trotter Born July 3, 1943 – Passed February 14, 2017

Mom there will be no more goodbyes, there
Will be only till we are together again,
I know all is forgiven we did the best we can.
May you always walk in sunshine,
Hear your music and dance.
As your family and friends gather around you,
Now thankful to have a second chance.
I sat and thought about so many things,
As I held your hand tightly,
How I wished for you to stay.
I wished you no more pain or suffering,
And that you would be happy again.
As I struggled with my selfish thoughts,
Just to talk and laugh again.
But your eyes looking home-word
As Jesus reach his arms out to you and said,
this chapter is now come to an end.
And where you’re new one will begin
Walk with me Betty and I will guide your way.
I said I love you mom and it will be ok,
Jesus took you by the hand and showed you your way.

You’re forever in My Heart Mom
Love Helen

Betty Ann was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother she always did the best she could. She was loved and will be dearly missed every day of our lives. Betty Ann struggled with many health Issues over the years, starting at a very young age she lost most of her hearing and cancer being the last. Mom fought as long as she could but on February 14, 2017 she said she was tired and was going home. Mom was not alone her daughter Helen son Ken and grandsons were by her side.

Betty Ann had three children Helen Trotter, Ken Trotter and Carol and son in law Don Bergsma. Betty Ann also had six grandsons Dustyn Stewart, Jacob-Riley Sirianni, Brandon and his wife Jenna Bergsma and moms Great granddaughter Josie Bergsma, and grandsons Nicholas Bergsma, Blake Bergsma and Daniel Bergsma.

For mom family was everything it was clear as she clung to her memories of happier days. She had numerous friends over the years but one stood out the most for her, mom loved her very much. Joan De Vietor and mom were like sisters also Debbie her good friend and bud in Red Deer.

  1. I did not know grandma to well, being as she was not in my life to much. But the last couple of months I got to know her. It made me realize she did the best she could with the life she got and she loved all her kids and grandkids with all of her heart, always worrying and wanting to see them. She was a truly amazing woman. She will always be in our hearts. Love you grandma.

    I am sending this message straight to Heaven, for you, Betty. We worked together, were room mates and Traveled together, over a ten year period. You have touched me with, what i call my “Million Dollar Memories” You were respected and admired by everyone, no where ever, our adventures took us. You had a way of making people smile, and laugh, so hard, with your sense of humor. We never had a dull moment.
    Your children were your life, and you were proud of them. May Helen and ken be blessed, as they truly honored, their Mom. I am sure you are glowing, and sending kisses.
    It is hard to process, you are gone. I tip my hat, to you, as i will love and miss you. Until we meet again my friend. Like music in the wind.

  3. I never had the pleasure of meeting you Betty… I see the zest for life your daughter Helen has and she must have got some of that passed on from you. Rest in peace Betty and know that your family here in Edmonton loved you dearly.


  4. My deepest sympathy and condolences to Helen, Dustyn, Jake and their family and friends. I work with Helen and have seen a glimpse of what she has gone through the last little while; packing and moving her Mom to Edmonton, getting her settled in to her new home, taking her to appointments, the hospital, back home again and always taking great care of her Mom. Helen is a strong woman and a wonderful daughter and Mom. RIP Betty and know that your family loved you very much.

  5. Dear Helen, Dustyn, Jake and family and friends, we want to express our sincere condolences to you. We didn’t know Betty personally but I remember last year one beautiful summer day when we came out of the house and and got in the truck … You and your mom were walking together on our Street towards us and we saw you both together … The both of you smiling in a conversation with each other … You looked both very peaceful and content and for whatever reason I never forgot seeing you and waving at you, the two of you smiling and waving back at us that day. I still have this picture in my head to this very day. These are the memories that shall stay with you and brighten up your days in time. And know that

    There are Angels in heaven
    There are Angels on the ground
    There are Angels all around
    Just waiting to be found
    So when you are feeling sad, lonely
    Or just a little blue
    Open your heart to see your mom
    flying with the Angels
    smiling down on you!

    RIP Betty Ann
