Born Elizabeth Helen Lucop, June 2, 1943 in Duncan BC, Betty passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family at the Palliative Care Unit at NRGH on February 5th, 2012. She was pre-deceased by her parents John and Dorothy as well as her sister Phyllis and brother Brian.

Missing her deeply is her husband of almost fifty years, Gerald; her twin sister, Brenda Cramton; daughters: Sheila (Edward Dahlgren), Janice (Brian Campbell), and Kara (Bil Derby); and her grandchildren: Megan, Kelsey, Alexis, Aiden and Jacob. There is also a huge extended family of nieces, nephews and in-laws who will remember the many gatherings that have been held at the family’s Jinglepot home. Betty touched the lives of many through her countless hours of volunteering and formed long lasting friendships through associations with ILWU, Mountain View School PTA, Canadian Cancer Society and Nanaimo Hospital Auxiliary to name just a few.

A memorial will be held, Friday, February 17, 2012, 1:00 pm at Cavallotti Lodge, 2060 East Wellington Road.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to one of the charities very close to Betty’s heart, the Nanaimo Hospital Auxiliary or the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life team “The Betty Bunch.”
