Hill, Betty

Hill, Betty – Age 88, of Shubenacadie, died December 12, 2014, at home. Born in Erindale, Ont., she was the eldest daughter of Delmar and Marjorie Barker. What does one say about their mom? She had a green thumb, her baking was yummy, and she loved to bowl. She was raised Anglican but attended Shubenacadie United with her daughter.

Betty is survived by her children, Paul (Barb), Cathy (Al Flemming); Brian; youngest sister, Mary; her favourite niece, Linda; grandchildren, Sandra, Kelly, Kim, Mike and Mark; great-grandchildren, Janisha, Jayden, Logan, and twins Adam and Christian. She was predeceased by her husband, George; sisters, Grace and Ruth.

Betty has been cremated under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit. A graveside service is planned for a future date in Preeper Hill Cemetery, Shubenacadie. Thanks to VON Homecare for the years of faithful service. Mom loved each of you! Donations may be made to Shubenacadie United Church, Box 147, Shubenacadie, NS B0N 2H0. We three kids are so lucky to have had her for our mom.

“Kindness is the language which the deaf

can hear”.....Mark Twain


A branch has fallen from our family tree

but the tree remains standing. It will heal

and grow new branches; time will pass,

the pain will leave but we will always

carry that branch with us in our hearts.
