A truly special Sister, Aunt, Great Aunt and friend, Passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 3, 2013 at Joseph Brant Hospital, after a long and fulfilling life devoted to the family she loved.  As was her wish, she is now resting in the loving arms of her mother, Mary Flack (1988).  Betty was loved by all her family, and will be greatly missed by her sister Flo Collins (Mike).  Predeceased by nephews Freddy (Judy) and Rick (Denise).  Will be remembered always by nieces Joanne (Donny, deceased), Jane (Frank), and Judy (Brian), and nephews Dan (Nancy), Bruce (Mary-Lynn), and John (Catherine), and numerous great nieces and nephews, to whom she was an inspiration and role model.  Cherished by nephew Richard, Betty was a living guardian angel, someone he could always count on to speak with and seek counsel.  She will continue to fill this role for him from Heaven.  Prior to her retirement, Betty was a dedicated ward clerk at Joseph Brant Hospital.
