OLDACRE: Betty of Goderich and formerly of Seaforth

Peacefully at Alexandra Marine & General Hospital, Thursday morning March 18, 2021, of Goderich and formerly of Seaforth in her 93rd year. Beloved wife of the late Ken Oldacre (2003). Cherished mother of Ann Utley and her husband Bruce of Blyth, Steve Smith and his husband Charles of London, Jerry Smith and his wife Gaylene of Beaverdell, B.C. Loving grandmother of Tammy Thomson (Clint), Luke Hoy (Dave), and great grandmother of Rachael (Johnny), Colby, Jacob and Julia. Dear sister-in-law of Ruth Clarke. Missed by many nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors. Predeceased by parents Eva (Epps) and Melvin Clarke, brothers Ernie and Elliott (Kay), and sister Mae Watterworth (Reg).

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.
