My sincere condolences to the family. It was a shock to see her sweet face and to read of her passing. Betty and Lawrence were neighbours of ours when we lived in Greenwood, and I spent a lot of time in their home. Betty was a beautiful lady and we spent lots of time chatting and laughing. She was so kind and generous...... she even hosted a surprise baby shower for me. She adored her children, and also spoke fondly and often of her family in Digby. I stayed in touch off and on over the years by phone and spoke to her about a year ago. The photos are lovely to see and bring back memories.

I have such fond memories of Aunt Betty from my summers spent in Digby. I would often be sent 'downhill' (from Nana Ecker's) to use the bathroom but would end up staying to spend time with Aunt Betty. One of my favourite memories is the time my dad off-roaded the family van- I can still remember Aunt Betty's cries of joy/panic/amusement. She was so kind and I am very glad that my children got the opportunity to spend some time with her this summer. I am also so appreciative of the trip she took to Ottawa in 2012 for Pascal and my wedding, and to everyone who helped coordinate and make that possible. We use the beautiful blanket she knitted for us as a wedding gift each night. Rest in peace Aunt Betty.
Love from Laura, Pascal, Julien, Sophie & Marc-Olivier

Deepest sympathy and condolences to, Ron , Brian, David,Donna, and families. So many memories from when Don and Betty were youngsters. She and he were always joking back and forth and Moo was their favourite greeting to each other.
One summer they were running a jail for bail fund raiser well it wasn’t long before Don was behind bars . Betty followed quite quickly when Don retaliated and she was in jail too.
We spent many vacations in Digby just taking off with Betty for a drive which would end up with a big plateful of clams and chips somewhere.
She made us beautiful quilts , slippers, and knitted mitts etc. She was a beautiful soul wonderful Sister and Aunt to our family. Rest In Peace dear Betty. No more pain. Love Ann and Don.
Hugs to all of you.

I have many fond memories of Aunt Betty from my childhood. I loved Sunday afternoons when we would come into town to visit with Nanna and eventually I would escape and run down the hill to play with David. That would of course always involve cookies or sweets of some type from Aunt Betty's kitchen and if I was lucky and stayed long enough - Uncle Lawrence would BBQ!

I'm thinking and praying for you all in your sorrow. Ronnie, Brian, Donna and David - take care of each other and remember your cousin loves you!

Dear Ron,Brian, David ,Donna and family,
Your mom was the best big sister you could imagine. She could make anything she set her mind too - even used a power saw! We have quilts, knit blankets and of course her dish cloths to remember her. We cherish our memories of taking her on drives and her telling us who lived/used to live where we went passed. Our love to all of you at this sad time, Aunt Linda and Uncle Mike
