BETTY M. CASTELL (VALLIERES)

Betty M. Castell

[nee Vallieres]

February 11, 1933 – December 18, 2014

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. She will be dearly missed by all that knew her but especially by her husband and best friend of 61 years, Robert Castell.

Robert and Betty were married April 24, 1953 in Vancouver, B. C. They had three daughters’ Debbie, Linda and Kim. They resided in the lower mainland until the late sixties when they relocated to Gabriola Island and remained for the rest of Betty’s life. After a brief, brave battle with cancer she left us on December 18, 2014.

Betty’s main focus in life was her family but especially her husband Robert. They spent many happy years together: raising their family, boating and fishing, gardening and later in life RVing.

Betty was predeceased by her parents and grandson in 2011. She is survived by her husband Robert, 3 daughters Debbie [Don] Brown, Linda Smith and Kim [Robert] Mitchell, 6 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren and extended family.

A life well lived leaves its gentle pattern on the hearts of all and the world is a lovelier place because one person touched it with warmth, goodness and grace.

We will love and miss you always.

A ‘Celebration of Life’ will be held at a future date.
