The family would like to send a special thank you to the support staff including nurses, care aids and Dora at the Williams Lake Seniors home for their care and compassion they provided to our mother over the past year.
Her sense of humor, spunk and laughter will be missed by many.
Her life will be celebrated when we can gather again. Memorial donations can be made to the BC Seniors Games Society, Zone 9, would be greatly appreciated by the family. Betty attended the Seniors Games four times and received medals for crib each time she participated. Her last trip included a Gold Medal!
