Eliza (Betty) Datwiler

1913-2013

Betty passed away peacefully on March 10th and we are grateful that she had many opportunities to visit with her family before she passed. She will be dearly missed by her son Ken (Deborah) and her daughter Kitty (Johnny), her grandchildren Sherry (Ray), Wendy, and Ken, as well as her great grandchildren Jonathan, Courtenay (Ian) and Christian and her great great-grandchildren, especially Ricki and Carson whose visits delighted her.

Betty was born in Vancouver and spent her early-married years on a dairy farm in Langley where she raised her children and worked hard to keep the farm running successfully.

In the early 50’s she moved to Powell River to start a new life and it was here that she found her calling as the owner of a thriving flower shop. Betty loved Powell River and she enjoyed a good life there as her family grew.

In 2003, she moved to Comox Valley for health reasons and in 2009 she moved into the Views in Comox. Betty made many friends among staff and residents and she actively participated in all of the activities. She was happy there and appreciated all that was done for her. She will be missed by her close friend Bernice with whom she formed a strong bond.

We will remember Betty for her quick mind, her good heart, her down to earth sensibilities, and her inner strength. There will be no service at Betty’s request.
