Betty was born on March 24, 1925 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. After her schooling she came west to work at the Behrman farm near Vidora, Sask. During this time, she met a charming young fellow, Cliff Brown who had just returned from overseas duties in the Second World War. They were married in Vidora on Dec. 9, 1946. The first years were spent working for various farmers and ranchers in the surrounding area. They were eventually able to purchase a piece of land on the irrigation near Consul. Over the next few years, she worked hard caring for three kids, gardening and entertaining many friends and neighbours who stopped in to visit on a regular basis. You never left her place before she fed you coffee and lunch and told you a good story. In 1973 they purchased land north of Robsart. Her family started to grow and they were always her priority. During this time, they spent many winters travelling with friends to the warm weather in Nevada. In 1997 they sold their farm and moved into Maple Creek. She eventually moved into Sunglow Manor where she enjoyed meeting new friends.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and home care workers who cared for her during the last year. Also, a huge thank you to a special care giver Joan Darling who made it possible for her to live on her own until her passing.
Donations in Betty’s memory can be sent to Robsart Cemetery, Box 59, Robsart, Sask, S0N 2G0.
