MACKINNON, Elizabeth (Bette)

Feb. 12, 1936 ~ June 19, 2008

It is with great sadness that we say good-bye to our wife, mother and grandmother who passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. She will forever be loved and remembered by her husband of 55 years, Ron (Johnny), their children, Larry (Georgia), Pat (Roger), Shirley (Shane), Richard (Shari), Debbie (Ken), her sister Jeanne, brother Bill (Joanne), 8 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild, nieces, nephews and many other friends and relatives.

Family meant the world to Bette. She had a passion for gardening and spent countless hours in her garden at Lake Errock before relocating to Mission two years ago. She could also be found in the local bingo hall or trying her luck in one of many Casinos. Mom also loved the comraderie of her online friends. That little joke, or pictures or even a simple “Hi” could be like a ray of sunshine from the sky.

We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the loving care given so willingly by the staff at the Christine Morrison Hospice.

All are invited to attend a Celebration of Life which will be held on July 12, 2008, at 2:00 pm at the home of son Richard at 43808 Birch Lane, Lake Errock.

In lieu of flowers those wishing to honor her memory are invited to contribute to the Mission Hospice Society C/O The Christine Morrison Hospice at Mission Memorial Hospital located at 7494B Mary St., Mission BC V2V 6Y9 in her name.

Our lives go on without you

But nothing is the same

We have to hide our heartache

When someone speaks your name

Sad are the hearts that love you

Silent are the tears that fall

Living out our lives without you

Is the hardest part of all

The special years will not return

When we were all together

But with the love within our hearts

You will walk with us forever

Until we meet again, Your loving family
