February 17, 1952 - November 3, 2021
Betty had a full life. She worked at a variety of clerical positions until gaining employment with an employer in a job she enjoyed for 35 years until her retirement in 2017.
After retirement, she decided to upgrade her education and also attended band classes to learn how to play steel drums. Two recent highlights in her life were travelling by train to BC to visit family (2019), and she and her grandson Everett had a tour of the new Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Temple here in Winnipeg, Manitoba (2021). She cherished the time enjoyed with her grandchildren.
Betty was predeceased by her parents, Leda and Donald Millis, and her extended family. She is survived by, and will be deeply missed by, her daughter Shannon (John); grandchildren, Spencer, Lauryn, Everett, and Lou; her brother Raymond (Doris); other relatives and close friends.
Her family wishes to offer a very special thank you to the staff at CancerCare Manitoba, and to all the staff at the S.R.H.C. for their care and support during Betty's time there.
A private burial has taken place at Transcona Cemetery, and a small private celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Betty to the Children's Hospital or a charity of your choice.
Betty was one of a kind; she will be greatly missed, and always remembered to all that knew her.

My sincere condolences to Betty’s family and friends. I believe she was a student of mine in the early 70s at St. John’s in Winnipeg. It was nice to read of her full life and family. May she Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Cheryl Willis (Former teacher) on: Nov 13, 2021
