My heart breaks for you Jennifer & Alan. The closeness you shared with your mother is an example of true love. I have so many fond memories of your mother and seeing the pictures of her has them flooding back. I send you lots of love and prayers and hope that somehow you can find solace quickly. Victoria xo

My chapter (Ruby Royales) and myself would like to express our sincerest condolences to Betty’s family. Betty was a real joy to have fun with and she had quite a sense of humour. She was every bit a lady and will be sadly missed. She is in God’s hands now.

I knew Betty through the Red Hat Society. I will always remember her wonderful smile and her great laugh. Betty always went out of her way to be friends with everyone she met.
She loved Red Hat events and I always searched her out when I attended too.
She will be a great loss to her family and friends but also to her Red Hat Group and all who knew her.
I have lovely pictures of her at our Halloween event last year. We send you our condolences from Rambling Roses of Oshawa.
God Bless you all.

My Sincere Condolence to the family on their loss. I knew Betty from the Happy Red Hatters chapter. Betty was loved by all our Red Hat Ladies. We loved her beautiful smile, her kindness And her funny ways. I loved to take Betty’s picture...and she loved to pose for her picture. Red Hatting will not be the same without our Betty Boop. RIP my Dear Friend.

Betty you were a beautiful Lady, my Vice Queen until the end. You have earned you Red Hat Wings, a true friend always ready to Red Hat with me and a wonderful asset to our Happy Red Hatters Chapter. You will be missed by many Red Hat Sisters and our chapter. Rest in Peace lovely lady.

I am so sorry and sad to hear of Betty s passing . She was an amazing friend to my Mom (Helen Pugliese) and comforted me so much in June when Mom passed. I remember her kindness and beautiful smile and we were so glad that she could be a part of my wedding and baby shower . God Bless

So very sad to lose you, Betty. I know your family are devastated and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of them.
I remember all the laughs at The Red Cross office in Pickering, and the lunches that we all shared. Mostly, though, I remember the times when we met at White Feather. Shopping, lunching and sharing updates, both happy and sad, in our lives. And I remember our time together at my my cottage. You were a big part of my life, Betty, and I'll miss you.
Condolences to all those you loved.
