Betty was a woman of many talents, over the years she enjoyed traveling with her husband Ken, making many sandwiches for the United Church, playing cards, sewing, and knitting. She was always dressed to the nines and up for an outing and a good laugh. Betty was certainly a master of the kitchen; her butter tarts were a favourite for everyone who tried them.
Cremation has taken place; a celebration of Betty’s life will be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to Haskett Funeral Home, Seaforth (519-527-1390).
Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, or the Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated.
