WARDLEY, Betty Doreen (nee Cochrane) -

On Sunday, October 12, 2014 we lost a loving wife, mother, grandmother sister, and friend leaving husband Tim heartbroken as they just celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary.

Her son, Bill, resides out west but has always kept a loving and close relationship. Her daughter, Linda, has lost her best friend which no one can replace. Betty thought the world of her two granddaughters Alysa and Alora who were always close to her heart.

Betty is survived by sisters Bernice (Art), Doris (Ron), brothers Harold (Barb) and Bill (Zelma) and many loving nieces and nephews.

Betty was always one to put others first and asked so little for herself.

May she rest in peace and be greeted by her parents, brothers, friends and may they welcome her with the love she so deserved.
