ELIZABETH MARGARET LUINING (HODGINS) With great sadness we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Betty at 80 years young on April 6, 2012 at St. Boniface Hospital. She was predeceased by the love of her life Bob (1979), and her son Rick (1995). She is survived by her daughter Gail of Vancouver, BC along with several sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, numerous nieces, nephews, grand nieces, grand nephews, extended family and many close friends. Betty was born in Transcona to Louise and Thomas Hodgins. Following her marriage to Bob in 1956, the two adventurers moved to California until the early 60's when they returned to Selkirk to join the family dairy business. In the years that followed she supported Bob in his career at the dairy, raised two children and through her caring, compassionate, generous and fun loving nature was always at the heart of her extended family and large circle of friends. Later in life she was surrounded and supported by her dear friends at Knights Villa in St. Vital. For their kindness, her family is deeply grateful. In keeping with mom's wishes cremation has taken place and a private interment for family will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, April 14, 2012 at St. Clement's Church Yard, Selkirk, MB with a gathering to follow at Smitty's Restaurant. "Rest in peace mom, you will be deeply missed. I love you, it was an honour to be your daughter."
