In Celebration of

Elizabeth (Betsy) Joan Elliott (nee King)

August 4, 1938 -  September 8, 2019

Of Markland Woods, Etobicoke, passed peacefully in her home, Sept 8th, 2019, in her 81st year, on Grandparents Day following visits from immediate family Christopher (Caroline) and Keith, grandchildren Kaitlyn and Catherine; dearest friends Joan and Ron Shepherd, goddaughter Laura Shepherd, Maureen Lawson; neighbours Donna (Simon) Umbach; Caregivers Denise and Cary, Peter R.N.; and by phone sister-in-law Elaine King.

Betsy was born to Rene and Stuart King in The Pas, Manitoba, and was raised in Winnipeg with her brother Ross King (of Stuart N. King Optical) (deceased). She was married on Nov 8 1958 to Thomas Bruce Elliott (June 8, 1935-Nov 28, 2015) and supported him throughout his Engineering career with Ontario Hydro. Following retirement from The Etobicoke School Board, where she enjoyed the camaraderie of the School of Experiential Education for many years, she and Tom travelled worldwide, celebrated their grandchildren at their lakeside cottage in Muskoka, and ran a bicycle rental business in Port Elgin, Ontario.

A Funeral Service following cremation, will be conducted at Turner & Porter, Neweduk-Erin Mills Chapel, 1981 Dundas St. West, Mississauga, at 2:00 pm.
We invite friends and family to stay for a reception to celebrate our loving memories with photos, a small repast and music.

I knew Tom and Betsy for over 20 years. Tom was very keen on playing golf but did so rarely. Onetime, I took him to the range and as most amateurs, we had 6 great shots from a bucket of balls and the rest were duffers. On the way home, that 6 great shots were all we talked about. Betsy was the strong one. I often saw her taking long walks around the neighbourhood in the summer and fall. I will miss that so much. She insisted on helping when I shovelled her driveway after a snowstorm. I can still see her tiny frame and boots with little traction, moved about in the same spot for 20 minutes. In the last year I saw less and less of her, not measured in time but I was losing her slowly. Then losing became a lost this week. I was so glad to have seen her the day before. Betsy, you will have to wait for a while before I can make another pot of soup for you. But I promise that I will, the next time I see you. So bye for now... Simon

So sorry for your loss. All my memories of Aunt Betsy are filled with laughter, love and always with a smile. An incredibly bright personality who you never forgot once you met her. Big hugs to Christopher, Keith and their families.

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of beautiful Betsy Elliott on September 8, 2019.
I have fond memories of her and her late husband, Tom, when I visited them at their home and their wonderful hospitality.
