After Raymond passed away and her family had grown, Betty moved to Fort Macleod and eventually married Garnet Stevens. Garnet and Betty had quite a social life playing bridge, travelling, camping with the Good Sam’s. They enjoyed their many friends and family.
Betty loved gardening, cooking and baking, and entertaining in her beautiful home. She was also involved in all of her children and grandchildren’s lives and enjoyed each of them and encouraged them in all of their endeavors.
