Ms. Betty Mitchell
Betty Mitchell of Winchester, and formerly Kemptville, passed away peacefully on Wed., June 15, 2016 at 10:18 am.
She was born on July 14, 1933 in London, England. After her father’s (Harold) passing, Betty immigrated to Canada in 1945, with her mother, Violet Kathleen, to begin a new life. During Betty’s life in Canada, she became a cosmetologist, owned her own beauty salon, and owned a fish and chip shop, all in the Etobicoke area of Toronto. In 1998, she moved to the Kemptville area to look after her daughter who was suffering from kidney failure.
Betty was an active member of the Kemptville Lions Club, a life member of the Islington Seniors Center, and a good friend of Louise and the Beaudoin family of Kemptville.
Betty will be cremated, and buried alongside her mother, father, and daughter in the Alperton Cemetery in London, England.
Betty’s friends would like to thank the ICU at the Ottawa General Hospital, especially Laura, who provided Betty with a peaceful end to her life; to Lottie for being a friend and taking care of Betty’s cat when needed; to the many drivers who got Betty to her various appointments; the home care team; and Dr. Luong for her care and compassion over the years.
There will be no visitation.
For those wishing to do so, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Kidney Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
