Elizabeth Frances Hadfield

Betty passed away with her family at her side on February 7, 2012 in Penticton. She was born October 19, 1921 in Regina, Saskatchewan and was raised in Milestone Saskatchewan, The Pas & Churchill Manitoba. In 1942 she moved to Williams Lake B.C. and worked for the Bank of Commerce for a year before following her beau Herbert to Wells B.C. where they were married in 1943. After the war they lived in Wells, where she excelled at badminton, dance and entertaining. In 1956 she joined Herb as the assistant postmaster, a position she held until she retired in 1980, and they moved to Penticton. She was predeceased by her husband Herbert in 2009 and is survived by daughter Linda (John) Griffin; son Ross (Lynn) Hadfield; grandchildren Steve (Nicki) Griffin, Alayne (Tyler) Mittelsteadt, Scott (Sam Marx) Hadfield and Mike Hadfield; great grandchildren Benjamin and Meghan Griffin and Ava Mittelsteadt; nieces and nephews. Betty loved to entertain and had been known to cook more turkeys on a weekend then most people would cook in a lifetime. She had an infectious laugh, loved nothing better than a good joke and being around her family and friends. She was generous, loved playing cards and always got in the last word. Betty will be missed by all of us. Memorial Service to be held on Saturday, February 18 at 11:00 a.m. at Providence Funeral Home, Parkview Chapel, 1258 Main Street, Penticton BC.
