Although we are so heartbroken, we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to love, and be loved by someone so very special. Betty was always there for anyone who needed her. She was raised on a farm and has always been a very hard worker. She was such a kind, giving and selfless women. Betty lived a full and wonderful life, she shared her love and compassion with all those who knew her. Betty's happy place was at Head Lake trailer park, where she spent many, many summers. She enjoyed going to the rec room and dancing her heart out to newfie music with her friends, she also loved going to the festivals in Havlock with the fiddlers, she would dance all night long. She also liked to collect mugs from all the places she visited and anything Betty Boop. More recently she enjoyed reading, relaxing in the sun, knitting and of course her fireball. She loved her family more than anything else!
She will be forever remembered and deeply missed by all of her family and friends.
In keeping with her wishes there will be no formal funeral service
