Bette McDonald passed away peacefully on Monday, August 13, 2012 at her home in Calgary at the age of 87.
She was blessed to spend 59 years with the love of her life Dan, who passed away in 2010. As a mother and grandmother she was always there with love affection, wisdom and unending support. Bette was a woman of great personal strength, always had a kind word for whomever she met and would always remind us of the importance of family. For that, we were truly blessed. She will be lovingly remembered by daughter Nancy Laird, and her husband Scott, and grandchildren Spencer, Jaime and Geordie, affectionately their “Nana”. Bette was the youngest in a family of four children and is survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was born in Toronto and spent time in Montreal before returning to Toronto where she worked for many years with ManuLife. She and Dan moved to Calgary in 1995. She would want to thank Tammy Jenkins for her support and companionship as well as the gentlemen at the concierge desk at The Grandview.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary’s Cathedral (219 – 18th Avenue S.W.) on Saturday, August 18, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
