Passed away after a valiant, stoic fight, on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, at the age of 86. Beloved wife of Elmer “Red” (2009). Very Proud and Loving Mother of 10 Children, Jeannine (Ken) Rainbird, Kathy Montgomery (Brian Wilson 2012), Allen (Vivien), Patricia Cunningham, Suzanne (John) Toner, Marc (Debbie), Laura (Eric) Strople, Jackie (George Mateciuk), Mike (Sherry) and Peggy (Keith) Head. Gram will be greatly missed by her 14 Grandchildren, Sheila (Ken) Camphorst, Karey Montgomery, Lisa Montgomery, Allen Jr. (Dana), Merissa (Justin) Sim, Adam (Nicole), Vanessa (1991), Russell (Dayna) Cunningham, Jessica, Ami, Chawntel (Anthony) Ruxton-Santilli, Ian, Dean, Tyler Head. Gram will be missed by her 15 Great Grandchildren and her 5 Great-Great Grandchildren. Also survived by numerous Mailloux Family nieces and nephews and Ford Family members, niece Debbie Mio and nephew Ron Ettinger, as well as cousins in Canada, U.S.A. and the U.K. We want to acknowledge Mom’s long-time Friend, Grace Ducharme, who brought her a lot of joy. Mom’s/Gram’s door was always open, to one and all; she tried to make everyone feel like Family. She always said: “This is OUR home, not MINE”. She had an adventurous spirit, as evidenced by “Would you like to …” and you couldn’t finish the sentence without an immediate response of “YES!” Betty’s Visitation will be at WINDSOR CHAPEL (Central Chapel) 1700 Tecumseh Rd. E. 519-253-7234 on Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. until time of Spiritual Ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Cremation to follow, with Interment at a later date. As an expression of your sympathy, donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada would be appreciated by the family.
