Elizabeth Roy

November 27, 1921 - March 3, 2016


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving mother. Betty was born in Victoria, BC, she met her husband Rob in Prince Rupert and was married at the age of twenty. She lived with her husband for twelve years in Prince Rupert and then moved the family to Duncan where they lived out the rest of their lives. They had four children, two sons Robbie (Sharon) and Larry (Colleen) as well as two daughters Marilyn and Linda (Trent).

They were blessed with nine grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren and two great great grandsons. Betty was predeceased by her sisters Eileen and Edna. Betty had many friends, one very special lady was Sally who was a large part of her daily life for thirty years.

Moms favorite TV show was Survivor and she truly was a survivor herself. Betty was a war bride and that made her a much stronger woman with a bigger purpose in life. We are very blessed to have had such an incredible loving mother.

Betty was very active and walked every day, she loved to be outside. She would also swim several times a week.

Betty left us 94 years young. We will no longer feel her touch but we will always carry her spirit.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Sweet dreams Mom.

Hello Roy family, Linda in particular.
Tom and I have fond memories of when Linda babysat our daughter Sarah in 1985 & 1986. Linda often took Sarah to visit Betty & Rob, who treated Sarah as one of their own grandchildren. They were very kind to Sarah & us. We especially appreciated that as we had no family in town.
We have lived in Prince George since 1989 & are thrilled that Sarah is now expecting our first grabdchild!
Linda, it would be great to hear from you if you get this. We are so very sorry for the loss of your wonderful Mother.
Mavis & Tom Bethune
