Elizabeth FRAIL

Frail; Elizabeth, May (Betty). 1923 – 2014. Elizabeth Frail (nee Spry) passed away peacefully at Heritage Village, June 3, 2014 at the age of 91. She was born in Three Rivers, Quebec to English immigrant parents but grew up in Montreal. She there met a young soldier, John Frail, whom she married in 1947. An Armed Forces family, they lived in Montreal, Nova Scotia, and Ottawa. After retirement they sold real estate for ten years in Ottawa. For the following decade they spent winters in Florida. While in Ontario and the Maritimes they built family cottages where they spent time canoeing and enjoying the quiet of nature. They moved to Chilliwack from Ottawa ten years ago. Both Betty and John were active in church activities, as well as biking, skating, and walking. Both were avid readers. Betty and John were married 66 years when John passed away in 2013, also at age 91. They had raised 4 children – Ken (Janice), Diane (Ken), Gary (Danielle) and James (Elizabeth), 8 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. They were often referred to as a couple ‘Betty and John’. It was decided most appropriate to have a joint memorial service and burial in Centreville, Nova Scotia in the beautiful Annapolis valley that they so loved. The date for this service is to be decided. The family wishes to extend their thanks for the thoughtful care she received from the staff of the Rosedale neighbourhood of Heritage.
