Elizabeth Anne O’Neil Charbonneau

“Betty” was born on September 23, 1938 to John O’Neil and Teresa Lowe in Fall River, Massachusetts and is the youngest of six children. Betty is preceded in death by her parents, the love of her life and husband Jim, her brother John, and sisters Teresa, Mary and Marguerite. She leaves behind brother, William “Billy” O’Neil of Massachusetts. Betty graduated from St. Anne’s School of Nursing in Fall River in 1959 and continued to work as a Registered Nurse in Massachusetts, Nyack, N.Y. and Texas until she retired from Tomball Regional Hospital. Many knew her as, “Nursery Betty”, as she cared for newborns for the span of her career of over 50 years.

Betty married James George Charbonneau on July 4, 1962 in Fall River, Mass. and together they have two daughters, Elizabeth Anne Fisher, of Lufkin, Texas and Mary Catherine Jones and son-in-law Michael of Cypress, Texas. Betty has nine grandchildren and six great grandchildren, and one on the way, all of whom brought her much joy. She also had many nieces and nephews. Spending time with her family was her greatest love! Betty and Jim, along with their daughters, were original parishioners at Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church and were very involved in various ministries over the years. They were especially proud to be involved in the beginnings of the World Wide Marriage Encounter movement. Her family and friends will miss Betty greatly, but we know she is now in heaven with her beloved Jim. Theirs was an epic love story filled with happiness. Betty so loved her “Jimmy” that she passed peacefully on the four-year anniversary of his death to join him with our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven.

Arrangements are under the direction of Brookside Funeral Home-Cypress Creek, Houston, Texas.

Betty oriented me to the 3-11 shift at Tomball in 1984, Betty was a wise nurse that didn’t rattle easily. We shared many many laughs together as she had quite the dry sense of humor, the joys & the tears of family life. She was such a caring person & always in charge. If there was a get together She & Jim would be there & in later years Mary would bring Betty. Betty will be missed now she & Jim are together forever. Brenda Greer

Dearest Mike and Mary and Family,

Betty was such a dear friend to me. I remember Betty and Jim back when Christ the Redeemer was under construction. She was always smiling and friendly. In later years, Betty and Jim sat right behind us in church. Every Saturday, I looked forward to listening to their beautiful voices singing and having a chance to chat with them after Mass. Betty will surely be missed by so many who knew and loved her. She was extremely proud of her family and was a joy to know. Now she and her sweet husband are in Heaven singing to the Lord !! My heartfelt prayers are with you all.
Love and thanksgiving for Betty's life,
Holly Strapulos

My deepest condolences to my Aunt Betty's wonderful family. I have so many fabulous memories of her and her time in Massachusetts growing up. She and Jim would baby sit my sister and me and play records of the then current Broadway songs. I can picture her and Uncle Jim together singing again!
All my love,
Kathy
