RAITT, Marjorie Lillian 'Betty' - Known to most as Betty, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 15, 2021.
At the age of 94 years, Betty had lived a full live and was deeply loved.
She was many things to many people: our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, Aunt (Aunt Bet) and friend (Miss Betty).
Betty’s death was not COVID related; it was just her time.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Sheila and son, Gordon (Leslie); her grandchildren Matthew (Hayley), Michael (Jenn), Chris (Nicole), Melissa (Hugo), Chad, Corey, and Amber; along with her eleven great-grandchildren; Abby, Skylar, Peyton, Tristan, Grace, Owen, Hannah, Juliette, Ivy, Èlioth and Anaïs.
Betty was predeceased by her loving husband of 60 years, Donald Vincent Raitt, her parents Robert and Elsie, and her son (in-law) Walter.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Memorial Donations may be made to: St. George’s Memorial Church, 51 Centre Street, Oshawa, Ontario, L1H 3Z9 or The Canadian Cancer Society.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff at Lakeview Manor, Beaverton, for their exemplary care, kindness and compassion which was evident in each interaction with both Betty and Don over the years.
