Elizabeth (Betty) Johnson passed away on October 25, 2008 in Victoria General Hospital.

She is survived by her loving family: husband Ted; and three sons: Brad (Leslie), Todd (Shawn) and Blake

(Elizabeth); four grandchildren; sister, Lorna MacLaren; and brother, Norman Chambers.

Betty was born April 23, 1937 in Chilliwack and attended Sardis Elementary and Chilliwack High School. She received her Bachelor of Education from UBC and taught in Costa Rica and Dawson Creek.

Betty was a respected educator, an accomplished artist, an avid gardener, a community volunteer, a marathoner and a world traveller. Her love and concern for family and friends, her strength of character and her faith sustained her during a brave struggle with cancer. She will be sadly missed.

A private family service was held at St. John’s Anglican Church, Duncan and a Celebration of Life will be held in Dawson Creek in November.
