It is with profound sorrow that the family of Betty Jane Armstrong announces her peaceful passing on Sept. 29, 2017, at Parkwood Hospital in London. Betty was in her 90th year.


Lovingly remembered by Robert, her husband of 69 years, and by her daughters and sons-in-law: Nancy and Chris Thomson, Connie and Scott Wilkinson and Janet and Murray Klassen.


Betty will always be a special Granny to Sam, Joe and Kayla and Emily Rose.


Predeceased by her brother Pete Grimes, Betty will be missed by her brothers and sisters-in-law Jack and Marg Grimes, Bob and Jan Grimes and their families, as well as by many special nieces, nephews and friends, including Leone Grahame, Dorothy Hess and her Beta Sigma Phi sisters, known to her for over 67 years. She was also a cottager in Point Clark for many years.


Cremation has taken place.


A memorial service celebrating Betty's life will be held at St. Andrew Memorial Anglican Church, 55 Foxbar Road, London, Ontario at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017, with a luncheon to follow.


Special thanks to the Oncology and Palliative Care staff at Victoria Hospital, to the Palliative Care Staff at Parkwood Hospital and to Betty's kind and dedicated nurses and doctors.


It is Betty's wish that expressions of sympathy in lieu of flowers be made to or to a charity of your choice.
