    I was saddened to hear of Betty’s passing. She has been a special friend over the years. I have enjoyed doing volunteer work with her especially the most recent, Victoria’s Quilts Kemptville.
    Gone from our sight,
    But never our memories-
    Gone from our touch,
    But never our hearts.

    The ladies of Victoria Quilts (Kemptville) Branch will dearly miss her delicious treats and warm smile. No ironing job was too much for her. I am glad that she shared some of her recipes with me, will always think of her as I am baking them.

    Jack and I are saddened to learn of Betty’passing Our sincere condolences to Frank and family. I had the privilege of knowing Betty in the late ‘70s. when we lived in Halleville and attended Hallville United Church. I remember Betty’s cheerful laugh and her smile. She was very kind to a newcomer and enthusiastically, but gently, could get you involved. Her enthusiasm was inspiring. May she Rest In Peace.

    VQ bees were made all the more enjoyable by Betty. She prepared the coffee and tea and always had some delicious goodies on hand. Then she spent the morning ironing everyone’s quilt pieces, and she always had time to chat. We shall miss her so much!
    Deepest sympathy to all Betty’s family.
