It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Betty Darling (nee Riley) at the age of 96, in Bowmanville, Ontario, on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. Betty was predeceased by her husband Grant, and is survived by her daughter Margaret (Denis) of Bowmanville and Bruce (Gail) of Haileybury. As well, she leaves her grandchildren Kevin, Jennifer, late Dean, Steven and Ian, and great-grandchildren Jake, Matteo, Keelan, Piper, Charlea, Cameron, Ryan, Tyler and Zoee. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews, and many, many friends.
Betty was a very active member of the Kapuskasing United Church and Eastern Star until her move to Belleville in 1998. She enjoyed curling, lawn and carpet bowling, needlework, quilting, crafting, playing bridge and travelling.
Betty was always close-knit with her siblings and their families, her extended family and their families. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the joy of her life, and she loved to spend time with them whenever possible. Betty touched the lives of everyone she met, with her loving care and compassion, her zest for life, and her wit and humour.
Cremation has been entrusted to Milestone Cremation Service, Napanee. Burial will take place at a later date in Kapuskasing Cemetery. Memorial donations made in Mary's memory to the Clarington Salvation Army would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences, photos and memories can be shared at www.milestonecremation.ca.
