On Monday, June 22, 1998, Betty (nee Baldwin) passed away peacefully from her time her on earth to life with all the saints in heaven. Our wife, mom, and nana touched the hearts of so many with her courage, gentleness, quiet faith, and unconditional love.

Cherishing her loving memory are her husband, Jim; sons, John McMillan (wife, Donna, and children, Steven and Jennifer), and Scott McMillan; daughters, Vickie Kennedy (husband, R.J., and children, Lisa and Jana), Kathy Bock (children, Jason and Jeffrey), and Alison; Jim’s children, Bob Squires (wife, Tammy), and Cathy Nesbitt (husband, Rick); and brother, Bill (wife, Eleanor, and children, Pauline, Paul, and Robert).

Betty was born in Ottawa, Ont. on July 24, 1933. For almost 25 years, she has enjoyed her career as a paralegal at Aikins, MacAulay and Thorvaldson.

Her greatest joy came from time spent with her granchildren. She also received great pleasure from the many trips she shared with Jim, and the wonderful times at Lakeside Trailer Park.

The family extends heartfelt thanks to Dr. Harlos and staff at St. Boniface Hospital.

A celebration of her life will be held at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church, 220 Helmsdale, Winnipeg, Man. at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 26, 1998, with Rev. Donna Mahussier officiating.

A reception will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, in memoriam donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
