Elizabeth (Betty) Coplin
1919 – 2012
We are sad to announce that Elizabeth Coplin fell asleep in death at the Vernon Hospice House on December 10th, 2012 at 93 years of age and is now awaiting a resurrection to a paradise earth.
She was born in Middleton-by-Wirksworth in Derbyshire, England on June 23, 1919. She grew up in Kamloops and has lived in Coldstream since 1959. She will be remembered for her strong faith in Jehovah and for her love of reading, painting, and concern for her family and friends.
Betty is survived by her husband Frank Coplin of 45 years, her two sons, Jim Young (Erica) from Vernon and Bill (Dorothy) Young from Campbell River. She will be remembered fondly by her granddaughters Krista, Carley, and Rachel and her great-grandson, Scott. “Auntie Bessie” will also be missed by her nephews Dave, Clay, and Ross Hett.
Heartfelt appreciation to Dr. DeBeer and Dr. Hayward and to the wonderful staff at Hospice House for Mom’s fine care.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 15th, 2012 at 3:00 pm in the East Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1424 Mission Road, Vernon, B.C.
