BETCHER, Diana Irean (nee Harrison)

August 22, 1944 – Moncton, New Brunswick
September 5, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Diana, beloved wife Gothart “Scotty” Betcher, of Calgary, AB, passed away on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at the age of 74 years.

Diana was born August 22, 1944 in Moncton, NB, where she grew up and graduated high school. She was the eleventh child of thirteen children. The house was getting a little crowded and with so many mouths to feed so Diana and Sandra, her younger sister by two years, were put on a CN train by their father and sent West to Calgary to stay with their older Sister Marge and her husband Dr. James Duncan, a Dentist.

Diana found work right away at the downtown CIBC Bank and her sister Sandra was hired by Dr. Duncan as an his assistant. They were able to move into their own apartment and stared enjoying life in Calgary. Their love for dancing brought them to the ballroom of the German Canadian club Shangrila. It was here that Diana and Scotty met and fell in love. They were married on July 20, 1968 by Rev. C.T. Remple at the Temple Baptist Church. God blessed Diana and Scotty with two sons, Peter Scott and Brent Stephen.

Diana celebrated her 74th Birthday on August 22nd and went to be with the lord on September 5th.

Besides her loving husband of fifty years, Gothart “Scotty” Betcher, Diana is survived by her two sons and daughter-in-law, Peter and Vanessa Betcher and Brent Betcher; grandchild, Saylon Joseph Betcher; sisters, Sandra, Betty, Marge, and Rose.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Thornhill Baptist Church (128 Tache Avenue N.W., Calgary, AB) on, Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
