ROBERTS, Mary Elizabeth " Betty" (née McALPINE)
Passed away, with family at her side, at Saint_Joseph's Health Centre, March 7th, 2008. She was a devoted wife, loving mother, passionate amateur entertainer, artist, skilled Bridge and Scrabble player and bonne vivante. She often said that she was named after two Queens and became affectionately known to her family as the Monarch. She is the beloved wife of 61 years to Cy ROBERTS, (predeceased,) loving mother of Bruce and wife Therese of Toronto, and Liz ROBERTS of Perth, Australia, dear sister of Marjorie RUSSELL of Vancouver. She approached life's challenges with a determined spirit. She often said 'I'll find a way or make one'. She made a successful transition to independent living after Cy's passing. After a stroke a year ago, she was so well loved by all her care givers that she was able to make the journey from Hospital to Long Term Care then to a Retirement Home! Faced with not being able to drive she purchased a 'mobility scooter'! She embraced 'scooter life' with gusto. The DVD: 'Betty Rides Again' celebrated her success. She always focused on what she had gained not on what she lost. Mom's positive spirit was a godsend for her family and an inspiration to everyone. A private celebration of Mom's life will be held for Friends and family at Chartwell Scarlett Heights, 4005 Eglinton Ave, Toronto on her birthday Wed, March 26th, 2008 from 2-4 p.m. Daughter Liz will celebrate Mom's Life in Perth Australia on the same date.
