Betty Ida WALKER

It is with sadness that we share the passing of our wife and mother. Betty Ida Walker passed away peacefully at Yuculta Lodge after a brief bout with leukemia. She is predeceased by her brother Cyril Trevett and son-in-law Ron Woodcox. Betty is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Robert Walker, her son David (Connie) and daughter Joan (Frank) Coupal. She also leaves behind grandchildren Mike (Joanne) Fraser, Carmen (Jean-Francois) Gelderblom, Graham (Leah) Walker, Jim Woodcox and great grandchildren Dalen, Shayla, Kade, Ethan, Jerod and Lola.

Betty was born in Condon, Oregon and emigrated to Victoria BC with her family. She later met and married Bob in Courtenay, BC and moved to Campbell River in 1947. Betty enjoyed her employment at the Village of Campbell River from 1954 to 1960. Bob and Betty owned and operated the Paper Clip Stationery Store and then retired to travel extensively. A service will be held at St. Peter’s Anglican Church on Thursday, September 2, 2010 at 1:30 pm, followed by a tea. No flowers by request, donations to be made to the Cancer Society. Arrangements made by Island Funeral Services.
