In Celebration of

Elizabeth Lucy Featherchok

March 6, 1937 -  June 12, 2022

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Elizabeth Lucy Featherchok, at the age 85, on Sunday, June 12th after a lengthy battle with Dementia. Predeceased by her loving husband of 48 years Peter; she was a mom and best friend to Sheri and son-in-law to Greg. Loving Nana to Lindsay and Christine and very dear friend of over 65 years to Margaret King and her husband Tommy (recently deceased) and friend to Betty Ferguson of over 30 years. Longtime friend to Elsie Dugas of over 70 years, the pair spoke every day and had a coffee and a morning chat over the phone up until Elsie became ill and passed.

Betty lived with her daughter and son-in-law for the past 5 years, until she was admitted to Palliative Care at William Osler Etobicoke General where she passed away.

We will always fondly remember all the special times at Featherwood place, family home for over 50 years, celebrating countless Thanksgiving, Easter, Christmas and Birthday gatherings. Also known to some affectionately as Betty, Betty Lou and Betty Boop, she so loved to have family over and cook her special signature dinners, especially known for her mashed potatoes which her granddaughters loved, and her signature sunshine cake because ‘no one could make them like Nana’!

Betty also loved the yearly New Years Eve parties at The Kings, where there would always be lots of singing and dancing, a staple at all the gatherings for many, many years. Betty came from a family of talented singers, Betty loved to sing along although the talent had not been passed down to her, but nonetheless she didn’t care, especially after she’d had a few glasses of wine.

Betty loved to travel with Peter and they would plan a special trip once or twice a year to the Caribbean, Europe, or cruising. Betty also looked forward to a yearly trip to Niagara with Sheri, where they would visit the Christmas Store in Niagara-on-the-Lake and have lunch, before traveling to the Hilton in Niagara Falls for a two night stay for some gambling, good food and good fun. This tradition with originally started with Peter and then upon his passing Betty and Sheri continued this tradition for over 15 years.

Betty had a real flare for decorating whether it be floral arrangements or decorating mantels at Christmas time, she made everything look perfect, she always said she wished she could have been an interior designer.
Besides travelling, decorating and wine, Betty had one other true love … Wurthers Original Candies.
Betty had a great sense of humour and loved to laugh (sometimes at the most inappropriate moments!) There were many times on family vacations that Betty and Sheri would get into a fit of laughter whether it be something random that set them off or some of the crazy hairdos that Betty would have due to emergencies such as getting hit by a wave in the ocean and having to visit the local hair salon.

Betty was very meticulous with her appearance and was always well dressed, make up on and hair done. It was always important to her to look her best, she looked forward to going to the hair salon every Saturday for a shampoo and styling.

Betty lived a long life surrounded by the people she loved. We find comfort in the fact that she has been reunited with the love of her life and so many other family members that she missed dearly.

We want to thank all the staff at the William Osler Etobicoke General Hospital Palliative Care Unit for their care and support.

A special thank you to all the PSWs at Circle of Care and especially Genelin who helped Betty and the family so much in the last year, we are forever grateful.

A visitation will not be taking place at this time, we invite you to add any memories and/or photos to Betty’s memorial page.

Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Betty are asked to consider Circle of Care Sinai Health.

Dear Sheri, Greg, Lindsay and Christine…
We send our sincerest condolences to you all.

Betty (Nana) was truly a kind, sweet and a wonderful giving human being. I know she will always have a place in all of our hearts.
Fondest memories are Betty and Peter’s dinner parties; Their generous hospitality and wonderful food will not be forgotten.

Sheri, my dear friend, you have shown remarkable commitment in taking care of your mom these last 5-years in particular.
It is comforting to know that she was in your care and that Betty felt like she was at a resort spa every day…

Very sincerely, Barbara & Ethan
