BETTY BENNETT It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our wife, mother and sister, Betty Lynne, of Elm Creek, at the age of 56 years. She is survived by her loving family of husband Wayne; and sons, Duane and Scott Johnson. Betty will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her three brothers, Jim (Helen), Ken (Maryanne), Dave (Marj) McInnes; five sisters, Isabelle (Mel Rodgers), Elaine (Wayne Jones), Anne McInnes, Jackie (Wally Hritzuk) and Barbara (Harry Lepp) three stepsons, Todd (Melanie), Tommy (Cindy) and Shawn (Nadine) Bennett, as well as their children; and numerous nieces and nephews. Betty was predeceased by her parents, John and Dorothy McInnes. Betty was born in Carman, MB, in 1946 and attended St. Daniel School, Graysville School and Carman Collegiate. She moved to Winnipeg in 1963 where she worked until 2000 before retiring to Elm Creek. Betty was involved in various sports but especially enjoyed golfing, curling and lawn bowling over the years. Recently she was on the executive of the Elm Creek Curling Club and the Scotswood Golf Club. Her greatest sporting achievement was winning a gold medal at the 1994 Canadian Lawn Bowling championship, playing pairs with her sister Elaine Jones. She served on the executives of the Manitoba Lawn Bowling Association, the Assiniboine Memorial Business Girls Curling Club and the Bison Business Girls Curling Club. Betty could always be counted on to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Her happy-go-lucky personality was enjoyed by all who knew her. She was a great cook, took tremendous pride in her home and loved her gardening. Funeral service will be held from the Carman United Church in Carman, on Wednesday, June 19 at 2:00 p.m., with Rev. Harold Kenyon officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 193 Sherbrook St., Winnipeg, MB R3C 2B7.
