Beatrice Margaret Gleig Laatsch (nee Massey)

June 3, 1921 – August 27, 2010

Betty passed away Friday in her ninetieth year after a valiant fight against kidney failure.

She died surrounded by the love of her husband, Howard, her children, her grandchildren and her great grandchildren.

Betty was a lovely lady with a soft spot for a man in a uniform. She had a great sense of humour; she loved to tease and be teased. She loved to laugh. She loved good food and good fun. She loved life, and she loved her family who loved her on equal terms. We already miss her. Farewell Betty. It was great knowing you.
