Betty Irene (nee Sweeney) Carpenter

CARPENTER, Betty Irene (nee Sweeney)

October 22, 1933 ~ November 26, 2010


It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of Betty Carpenter. She had open heart surgery on November 4th, but after a 3 week battle to recover, she went to rest in the early evening of November 26th.


Betty is predeceased by son Michael. She is survived by husband Ronald of 56 years; daughters; Bonnie Harvey (lane), Brenda Medgyes (Imre); sons: Brian, Brad (Cathie), Darrel (Lisa), and Rick; her grandchildren – Cheryl Walker, Drew Harvey, Jeremy, Kris, Matt and Anneke Medgyes; Bryce Carpenter; Teresa and Karley Carpenter and Ashley Husak. She was also blessed with 3 great granddaughters.


She leaves behind sisters May McDevitt (NB) and Jean Bearden (Ont) along with numerous nieces and nephews, in-laws, and dear friends who will miss her deeply.


Betty’s mission in life seemed to be serving others. She dedicated her life to looking after her husband and children and anyone who came through her door. She was always wanting to get you a coffee, “goodie”, or whatever she had on hand.


It’s now her turn to be looked after.


A ‘Come and Go” gathering will be held at the family home from 11am-3pm on Wednesday, December 1st.
