R.I.P Betty Newton

March 27, 2017

Our Mom, Elizabeth (Betty) Newton passed away peacefully in her sleep early in the morning at the age of 83. Our father, Jim, left us in January 2008, and now he and mom will be together. Predeceased by her father Robert Kai Hansen, her mother Vera, brothers Karl & Ernie, and sister Velma and survived by Steve Newton (Fiona), Ken Newton, Doug Newton (Rhonda), & Beverly Carter (Bruce).

Mom is fondly remembered by family and friends alike for her baking and cooking, particularly at the large family dinners that she often hosted at our home in Trout Creek. Her final year was spent at the Dr. Andrew Pavillion at the Summerland Extended Care facility. Her children are forever grateful for the superb care and attention she received from staff, and from her friend Rebecca. It did not go unnoticed.

There will be a short graveside ceremony at 2:00PM

at the Lakeview Cemetary in Penticton, followed by celebration

of life for family and friends on Saturday, April 22.

Light snacks and refreshments will be served.

Details will be shared at the graveside ceremony.
