Lucille Rene BETTS

Oct. 28, 1939 – Sept. 12, 2010

With her beloved husband at her side, Lucille left us to be with her Lord on Sept. 12, 2010.

Born in Vancouver Lucille spent her teen years in Edmonton, returning to Vancouver in the late 1950’s where she was reunited with her childhood friend, Alfred Betts. She captured his heart and they wed Oct. 23, 1959.

Lucille had many talents and passions. She loved walking, swimming and cycling. There was nothing she couldn’t sew or make and she was never afraid to take on a new creative challenge. Lucille loved to share her love for the Lord, leading Bible studies and participating in Women’s Ministries. She was also an active member of her local TOPS Chapter. She loved music and dancing and no matter where she lived, created a beautiful home for her family. She may be best remembered for her infectious smile and incredible laughter.

She will be greatly missed by her husband Alfred; her children Deborah Wilson (Robert), Brenda Radstaak (Steve), Lee-Anne Betts (Kelsey McAuley), Don Betts (Shelley); and grandchildren Joshua and Molly Wilson, James Betts and Izabella ­Betts-McAuley. She is survived by her mother Rene Jardine, brothers Larry and Lorne Jardine and sister Loralee Lee.

A memorial service celebrating Lucille’s life will be held on Mon., Sept. 20, 2 PM at Chilliwack Alliance Church, 8700 Young Road, Chilliwack. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Chilliwack General Hospital.
