BETTY LORRAINE LAURENCE
(TINLING)
April 7, 1931 - January 30, 2020

Betty Lorraine Laurence with her daughter Carol and son-in-law Wes by her side, after saying goodbye to daughter Pat and son-in-law Larry shortly before, mom left us to be with our dad.
Mom is survived and deeply missed by her loving family, daughters, Pat (Larry) Peters and Carol (Wes) Spicer; grandchildren, Kevin (Karen) Peters, Heather (Dave) Tanton, Crystal (Emily) Spicer, David Peters, Amanda (Jon) Adaskin and Britainy (Kellen) Jasper; great-grandchildren, Braydon Spicer-Jasper, Emily Tanton, Emma Peters, Renee Tanton, Michael Jasper, Liviah Adaskin, Ryan Peters, Aaron Peters and Zakk Adaskin; her brother Harold (Mary) Tinling, sister-in-law Lina Tinling and sister-in-law Noella Laurence; and of course, her precious dogs, Maggie and Cocoa.
Mom was predeceased by our dad Ron in 2000. She was also predeceased by sisters, Audrey and Bea, brother Rupert, and brother-in-law Robert.
Mom was born in Winnipeg and lived here most of her life except for a brief time when she lived in Kenora after marrying our dad Ron to whom she was married to for 49 years prior to his passing in 2000. Mom was a very independent, stubborn woman who continued to live in her own home right up until her health began to decline last year.
Mom was a devoted and loving mom, but she truly shined when she became a grandmother and later a great-grandmother. No words can describe the pride and joy she felt each time one of them called, visited or asked her to attend a special event in their lives.
Our entire family would like to thank the many doctors and nurses who did all they could to make mom's last days with us as comfortable as possible especially those at the Selkirk Regional Health Center - Med 2.
A celebration of mom's life will take place on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St. Private interment will follow at St. John's Cathedral Crypt.
Should you desire, in lieu of flowers, please make donations to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation, specifically for research into Glioblastoma cancer.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Your mom was a lovely lady, always so poised and regal. I was so moved to see her at my sister, Marlene's, funeral in December, and humbled that she made such an effort to show her support. You and Pat and the family will miss her very much, Carol. She and your dad were a great couple. Sending you all, my heartfelt sympathy. I sent an email to Marlene's boys and Gregg said "Thanks for letting me know...Yes I remember Betty attending the funeral. I enjoyed talking to her. Sorry to hear she’s passed away." And Dwaine said "I am sorry to hear about Betty Tinling's passing. I have very good memories of her". My sister Caroline (84) said she was at your mom and Dad's wedding and it brought to mind good times gone by with family. Your mom will certainly be holding a special place in the hearts of many people. - Posted by: Karen Tinling Panchyshyn (Cousin) on: Feb 18, 2020

  • I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Betty. She truly was a stubborn, independent woman. Her family was definitely her all. In working with her, she told many stories of the trailer in Winnipeg beach, and how excited she was for her granddaughters wedding. I'm sure Maggie and Cocoa miss her as much as we all do.
