ELIZABETH (BETTY) ADLARD August 5, 1924 - June 21, 2017 With heavy hearts we announce that Betty has left this world to join her parents, Andrew and Martha Neely, older sisters, Jane, Eileen and Marianne, many dear friends, and most of all Jack, her devoted husband of 61 years. Betty loved her family unconditionally and was an inspiration to her children, Maureen (Stephen) and John (Rhonda). She is also survived by granddaughters, Erika, Maureen, Alyse and Robyn, great-granddaughter Brooklyn, and several nieces and nephews. Betty cherished the life-long friendships she made growing up and working at Eaton's and the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, always encouraging others 'to go for it' and delighting in their success. After retiring, Betty and Jack moved to Victoria to be closer to their grandchildren. She loved knowledge, travel and supporting her charities. Proud of her Icelandic and Irish roots, she combined her interests in genealogy and writing to leave a wealth of family lore. A stroke 15 years ago curtailed her activities, but she was an optimist to the end. Interment at Winnipeg's Brookside Cemetery in August. If desired, donations may be made to Operation Smile. Betty was the last of her generation and we can only hope to see her like again. She expected little for herself yet gave her all. An angel has earned her wings.
