Obituary of Elizabeth (Bette) Innes Wallace Robertson Watson Wilson
Named to honour her female ancestors, Elizabeth (Bette) was perfect for this fierce woman of grace. She was the oak tree in a forest of maples, her quiet dignity and strength our rudder when we lost our way. She was our champion, our cheerleader, our constant in a changing world. She was never happier than among her family, her eyes lighting up every time she saw us. She found her voice and used it wisely, and although she never gave unwanted advice, when she spoke, her words were honest and true and kind. She was fiercely loyal and so so stubborn. She gave us the gift of her time and attention and there were no limits to her love. She could always be found in her garden among the many birdhouses with the birds and she left us all with the gift of creating things with our hands and our houses full of her treasures. She was an adventurer, coming to a new country to create endless possibilities for all of us—a proud Scot and a proud Canadian! She was a working mum; an entrepreneur; a seamstress; a craftswoman; and a lover of Johnny Reid! And yes, even at the age of 85, still did her banking online, enjoyed Zoom calls with family overseas, and enjoyed a good online bargain—not to be cheap, just to be thrifty! We are all so lucky to have had her in our lives and will smile everyday when we think of her.
