Underwood, Betty

“The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again” — Charles Dickens.
Our beloved mother, nana and great grandmother Betty Underwood was reunited with her loving husband Charles Underwood on Sunday, Feb. 19.
Betty was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia where she grew up as an athlete swimming, skating and running. She was energetic and lived every day to the fullest.
Her passion for life found her the man of her dreams, Charles Underwood, who had been relieved from the Navy and had acquired a job with Parks Canada in Waterton National Park. This is where they started their family with their boys Jim, John, Harry and daughter Wendy.
As Charles was working for the parks, the family was exposed to a myriad of beautiful locations such as Revelstoke, Ottawa and Halifax. Moving from coast-to-coast, Betty touched the hearts of many with her sense of humour and her kind soul.
Upon their retirement they returned to Charles’ birth place in Fort Macleod where they resided for the remainder of their years.
Not long after, Charles passed away leaving Betty to discover the challenges of independence. This didn’t slow her down as she stayed involved in the Legion and spoiled the town rotten with her baked and handicrafted goodies.
Betty “Who” never failed to bring a smile to your face with her classic sense of humour. She has made an impression on our hearts and will be greatly missed.
We invite you to join us as we honour Betty’s life. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 3 at 1 p.m. at Trinity United Church at 220 20th St. This will be followed by a reception at the Legion at 2:30 p.m. at 159 23rd St.
While flowers may parish, a lasting gift in Betty’s memory may be made to the Fort Macleod Handibus Society.
“She still lives in the twinkling eyes and loving hearts of her children and theirs; reborn again and again until the end of time.”
