1930 – 2008
It is with sadness we announce the passing of Betty Eileen Allen, at the age of 77 years, at Heron Grove, Vernon, BC on Tuesday, March 11th, 2008. Betty was born June 30th, 1930 in Medicine Hat, Alberta and spent most of her younger years in Calgary. In 1953 she moved to Vernon with her husband, Cyril. She was employed at Bulman’s Cannery and in 1972 worked for BC Fruit Shippers followed by Okanagan North Growers Co-Op until her retirement in 1990.

Her husband, Cyril, and brother, Tom Burne, predeceased her.
