ELIZABETH ROSS “Betty”
November 10, 1917 – September 26, 2008

Betty was born in Fort William Ontario. Her cheery optimistic enthusiasm for life served her well, making many friends throughout her youth, raising 6 children with her husband and working for many years in Winnipeg for Eatons. Betty and husband Bill retired to Comox in 1987, where she continued to bring her joy and zest for life to everyone she met.
Betty spent her final two and one half years in St Joseph’s Extended Care Unit, where she was known as the “life of the party”. It was thanks to the wonderful staff, each and every member from volunteer activity aides to cleaning staff, care aides, nurses and residents, that Betty was able to enjoy her final years with such great care and company.
In memory of Betty, donations to St Joseph’s Hospital Extended Care Unit would be appreciated, and or plant a yellow rose for someone special.
Anyone wanting to share in A Celebration of Life for Betty are welcome to attend St Joseph’s Extended Care Unit, Eagleview dining hall on Saturday October 4th 3pm, with tea reception to follow.
