November 19, 1931 – February 16, 2013
With the dignity and quiet strength that defined her life, Betty slipped away from her family on February 16th, 2013. Betty is remembered by her children Gerry, Lori(Pat), Shari (Ed), grandchildren Sara ( Anthony), Andrew, Douglas (Crystal), great-grandson Matthew and siblings, nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her mother Mae Ritchie. Mom/Grandma meant the world to us and to many strays she took under her wing. Her passing will leave a tremendous void in everyone’s lives. Thank you Mom/Grandma we love you; we are left happy memories to last a lifetime! Many thanks to the staff at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital for their compassionate care.
At her request there will be no service. A Celebration of Betty’s life will be held from 12:00-3:00p.m. on Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 at the Goldstream Campground. Condolences can be offered to the family at
