Fisher (McKillop), Elizabeth “Betty” – Age 66 of Stewiacke, passed away October 15, 2018, at home. Born in Truro, she was the daughter of the late Stanley and Annie (McKinnon) McKillop.

Known as “Aunt B” to all, Betty had an excellent sense of humor and always had the best cup of tea ready in exchange for a good story. Betty had a love for genealogy, and a creative talent for tole painting and sewing. Not only had she made many costumes for “the girls” over the years, but also helped her friends “hem” their pants on many occasions. Betty was an avid bowler and had been a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Stewiacke Fire Department. Betty had a way of taking in those who needed help, making them feel safe, loved, and at home. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Surviving are “the girls”, Natasha McKillop (Tim Smith), Maitland; Vanessa McKillop (Maddie Doiron), Dartmouth; sisters-in-law, Margie Robinson, Wittenburg; Jean (Bob) Hall, Paradise; Karen (Denvert) Levy, Stewiacke; Juanita (Jim) Withrow, Prince George, B.C.; Charlotte Flemming (Robert Scullion), Chaswood; Ruth, Spryfield; Marianne, Bayhead; brother-in-law, Lee, Wolfville; numerous nieces and nephews; many cousins. She was predeceased by her husband, Bill; and her brother, Jim.

Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life for Betty and Bill will be held Wednesday, October 24, at 1 p.m., in Stewiacke Fire Hall Community Centre, with a reception to follow. Burial will be in Pine Grove Cemetery, Stewiacke East. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Stewiacke Volunteer Fire Department or the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Nova Scotia would be appreciated.
