Betty Anne dedicated her heart and soul to mental health services; she was a founder of the Oak Centre Club House - Alternative Community Support, in Welland. She was a lifelong registered nurse, and later in her life discovered therapeutic touch and used it to ease the lives of others. Betty was dearly loved by her family and friends and will be forever missed by all who knew her.

Cremation has taken place, and the family will gather at a later date when it is safer to honour her life.

Betty and Tom and I have been friends since grade 9 at G.D. C.I. We had so many good times . Betty was the kind of friend who loaned you her sweater if it looked really good with your skirt for the high school dance. We lost touch for a time when we lived in different areas , but reconnected in 2000 at the time of the G.D.C. I reunion. What a blessing that was for us. We will always remember Betty as a kind, caring, fun, smart, spiritual being. We love you. Hugs.
