Betty enjoyed her nursing in Portage La Prairie, Stonewall, Whitemouth and Deer Lodge all of which she found very rewarding. In 1958 Betty met Michael and they were married on July 11, 1959. She was a dedicated wife, mother and nurse. She enjoyed reading, shopping and square dancing. Betty was a stay at home mom until her son and daughter completed high school. Her love for nursing drew her back to St. Joseph’s Personal Care Home until her retirement.

Special thanks are extended to the nurses and staff at Poseidon Care Centre. Flowers are gratefully declined. May God forever keep you both in His tender loving care.   As published in the Winnipeg Free Press on December 10, 2011
