April 30, 1925 – December 17, 2012
Betty passed away peacefully, on Monday, December 17, 2012, after a well-lived life.
Betty was raised in Prince Rupert, B.C. where she excelled in academics and sports. She completed courses to start a career in banking which took her to Victoria and then Calgary. In Calgary she met John, through their mutual love of sports, on the badminton court. It was a compatible match, they married and together they raised their four daughters. Betty enjoyed many sports and loved golf and curling. She also enjoyed traveling with John and they saw much of the world, whether it was cruising through the Mediterranean, driving the motor home down to the US or experiencing Machu Picchu, they loved to see new things.
Betty will be truly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 58 years John, her daughters Barbara (Tom Lett), Shirley (Jeff Sisson), Diane (Mike Black) and Beverly (Mark Pallister) and grandchildren Alexander and Sebastian Finch, Taylor and Teagan Sisson, Katie and Andrew Black, and Rebecca and Lucas Pallister. Until the end, Betty could turn a phrase and make everyone laugh.
