We regret to announce the death at Kelowna General Hospital on June 1, 2011, of Betty Timm, at the age of 73 years.

Betty was a resident of Vernon for over 50 years. She was an avid bowler for over 40 years, and was involved in Special Olympics for 25 years. Betty was inducted into the Funtastic Hall of Fame honouring her many years of dedication. She was known as the lady who was always available when needed, and was a longtime volunteer with the Red Cross and with the Catholic Women’s League. She will be remembered by many for the ten years spent at Watkin Motors.

Betty will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 46 years, Alvin; daughters Brenda (Paul) and Donna (Bill); and grandchildren Megan and Ryan. She is also survived by brother Sam (Donna) Biagioni of Penticton and sister Donna Easley-Vance (Dave) of Tri-Cities, Washington; step-brother Russell (Darla); step-sisters Sharlene (Robert) and Sandra (Alfred); and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members. She was predeceased by a brother, John and sister-in-law Lorraine Biagioni of Penticton and sister Helen Biagioni of Arizona.

Prayers will be recited at St. James’ Roman Catholic Church on Sunday, June 5, at 5:00 p.m., and a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated there on Monday, June 6, at 11:00 a.m., with the Reverend Father Dale Normandeau, celebrant. Interment will follow in Pleasant Valley Cemetery. Friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Betty to the Special Olympics c/o Vernon Funeral Home, 3007 – 28 Street, Vernon, BC V1T 4Z7.
