Betty Ogilvie

3 March 1922 – 10 April 2015

Peacefully and with family beside her, Betty “slipped the surly bonds of earth…and touched the face of God”. She loved her family, friends, poetry, seals and ocean, bluebells and most of all, Don. She leaves son, Martin (Camille) and daughter Bronwyn Lorimer (Graham), grandchildren Nicholas, Melissa, Katy and Jill, and nieces Janet and Ruth in England.

The family is deeply grateful for the thoughtfulness of friends and the exceptional care of Lady Minto staff, Dr. Barclay, Shannon Wardroper, Meals on Wheels, Music & Munch and Seniors.

Donations to the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation in Betty’s honour would be appreciated.
