Our mother loved people. If ever there was a social butterfly – Betty was it.
Busily organized – with a zest for life, and a drive, she would find the good in all persons. Betty was a vibrant woman and remained so throughout her life, and until her passing was still enjoying her weekly airport dinners with old friends as well as her activities during the week at the Campbell River & District Adult Care Society. Betty had a long and joyful life so lift your spirits – we should all go so far. Celebrate the life she loved.
Dear Mom – you shall always be missed and you shall always hold our hearts. From your loving sons.
A Celebration of Betty’s Life will be held Saturday, May 28th at 2:30pm at the Willow Point Lions Hall, 2165 Island Hwy., Campbell River, BC
Donations in Betty’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the Campbell River & District Adult Care Society.
