It is with great sorrow that the family of Bette Sue Kenny announces her passing on Monday, Sept. 2, 2013 in Winnipeg, Man.

Bette Sue was born Aug. 15, 1947 in Fort Frances, Ont. to Everett and Margaret Doman. She lived in Fort Frances all of her life.

She married the love of her life, Tom Kenny, on Oct. 24, 1970. Together, they started their family, raising two boys who were the light of her life.

She worked for Larry Phillips as a legal secretary for 24 years, retiring in 2011.

Bette Sue loved to visit, spend time with her friends, and enjoyed entertaining and going for lunch dates with old friends. She adored her grandchildren and loved getting the family together for any occasion.

During the quiet times, she enjoyed doing puzzles, e-mailing distant friends and family, and reading books.

She and Tom took an annual trip to Ixtapa, Mexico and it was time she looked forward to—and cherished.

She leaves behind her husband, Tom; son, Tom and spouse, Deb, and their daughters, Kylee and Marissa; and son, Todd and wife, Shannon, and their children, Brett and Abbie.

Also surviving are her brothers, John (Susan) Doman and Jeff (Donna) Doman; sisters, Sharon (Charlie) Moore and Karen (Norbert) Kuehn; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Bette Sue was predeceased by her parents, Everett and Margaret, and Tom’s parents, Tom and Margaret Kenny.

A memorial service will be held Monday, Sept. 9, 2013 at 2 p.m. at Green Funeral Home in Fort Frances, with Pastor Jane Trivers officiating.

The honourary pallbearers will be Bette Sue’s grandchildren, Brett, Abbie, Marissa, and Kylee.
