Betty Joan Evans (Parkin)

Betty Evans passed gently on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at the age of 84 in Cranbrook, BC. Born in Kimberley, February 27, 1930, our beautiful red haired, blue eyed mom, sister and grandma has departed this world, and started a new journey to be with all those she loved.

Betty is predeceased by many loved ones, the most important being her husband Neil Evans on April 9, 2012 and her husband William Harold “Kelly” Parkin on February 8, 1975. Betty is survived by her daughters Judy Parkin (Bob) and Shelley Parkin (John), son Kelly Parkin, step-daughters Brenda Jones (Lou) and Barb Anderson (Jazz), step-sons Barry Evans (Terri) and Scott Evans (Kathryn), sisters Carol Leask and Marg Price, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Rest now. We will see you again. A Celebration of Betty’s Life will be held at a later date.

Forever in our hearts.

Our heartfelt thanks to all the staff at the F.W. Green Home for all the love and care they have shown to our family for the last few years.

Alive in heart and mind,

The people left to cherish

And preserve a legacy.

Yes we are the rememberers….

…..And we will always be.
