Betty Wootton passed away peacefully at Errinrung Nursing Home in Thornbury, Ontario on Thursday, January 28, 2021 in her 101st year.
She was born and raised in Oxford, England and followed her husband, Eric, to Canada in 1947. They settled in Hamilton, Ontario and raised seven children in the house Eric built on Adair Avenue South.
Eric predeceased her, as did three of her sons, Stewart, Russell and Edward ‘Ted’. She will be sadly missed by her sons Brian and Alan, and daughters, Barbara and Carol. She also leaves four granddaughters, Katrina, Diana, Ashley and Brianna and two grandsons, Joshua and Austin, as well as seven great-grandchildren, who were the light of her life.
Betty will be fondly remembered by many old friends and neighbours in east end Hamilton. She always had a kind word for everyone and always sided with the underdog. She was tireless and generously gave of her time and energy. Betty danced to the music until the end.
Cremation has taken place and a private family celebration of Betty’s life will take place when possible.
