One of Betty’s proudest moments was being an RNA at SMGH for almost 27 years, where she cared for many with her heart on her sleeve. Upon retirement she continued to dedicate her time and services through volunteering with VON, Strathroy United Church, SMGH Women’s Auxiliary and the Social Committee at Trillium Village. On most days you would find Betty visiting with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, playing cards with friends, or helping others.
