DAVID, Elizabethann born December 10, 1944 - May 15, 2020 aged 75 years.  Betty, as she was fondly known as, was born to Frederick and Christine Lawrence (nee Fissel), and was the youngest sister to Irene Ida, Elsie, Edna and Freda. Freda now the only surviving sister.

Betty was a lover of words and an avid reader her entire life. Early in the 1970's, she was an editor and publisher of her own local newspaper, while living in Elkford, British Columbia. In the fall of 1975, Betty moved to Yorkton, where she was employed by the Yorkton Enterprise newspaper as a sales consultant. After a few years and during the summer of 1976 she moved to Rhein. Here, she was employed by Canada Post and in 1979, she was promoted to postmistress. A position she held until her retirement when she turn 60 years old.

In 2006, Betty and Dale moved to Kamsack, into a beautiful home on Second Street. Here they would be closer to family, their home was often being the hub of activity for family gatherings. Betty loved having children and grandchildren stop by for a sample of her baking or cooking, or just to say hi. Betty passion for "words" also lead her to sit on the Kamsack Library Board.
