The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at Fairview Retirement Suites, CMH, LHiN, and Care Partners for all the kind and compassionate care they gave to Betty. A private prayer service will be held for the immediate family, and interment will follow at Parklawn Cemetery.

My family lived next door to Betty, Harry and family from 1951-1972. We shared a common narrow drive. I remember Betty as a pleasure friendly person who always spoke to us young children. She made you feel important. She lived a good life. My condolences to Judy and Ron and their families. Rest In Peace Betty.

Betty was a wonderful contributing member of our Preston Lawn Bowling Club. We had many fun and enjoyable moments with Betty and loved her sense of humour.
Condolences to all the family.

I grew up on Queen Street in Preston aka Queenston Road, Cambridge and many years later in 1984 purchased the home next door to Betty. In addition to being a great neighbour she often kept a watch on my children Josh (1980) & Alianna (Ashley, 1984) playing in our shared driveway so I could grab a shower or make dinner without interruption. I'm certain my daughter's love for animals came from the countless hours she would sit next to and talk to Lady on Betty's back porch step. I admired her presence, no matter what time of day you saw Betty she always looked so elegant even in her house coat when she let the dog out. Betty introduced us to the Good Times Mixed bowling league in Preston which later in life was our kids introduction to Bowling. I had forgotten how many great memories there were from this era. May she RIP for a life well lived and one she shared with so many. ❤

I'm so sorry for your loss. Growing up as neighbours on Preston's Queen Street, I remember Betty as always having a smile ... & also remember what great treats we received from the Haddaway's at Halloween! Thinking of you and wishing you moments of peace and comfort.
