Betty Lou Daye
Betty Lou Daye passed away in Fredericton, NB on January 2, 2019. Born in St. Stephen on July 29, 1952 to Margaret and Earl Daye, Betty Lou had the distinction of being the youngest of nine children. Predeceased by Peggy, Daryl, Eddie and Ernie, she is survived by Bobby, Davey, Rose Ann and Donna. She is missed by her brothers and sisters-in-law, cousins and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews - each of whom was Betty Lou’s favorite.
Betty Lou is missed by devoted friends Diane Johnston, Ralph Lewis and Don Hannah; former Canada Customs colleagues in BC and in ON; St. Stephen pals from the 1960s and Prince George pals from the 1970s; kind neighbours in Oromocto; and members of Fredericton’s Unitarian Fellowship.
Betty Lou loved faraway places and, in her youth, travelled to China and Russia. In recent years, she believed it doesn’t get much better than a summer’s day at Julie and John’s Oak Bay cottage or enjoying a lobster roll in downtown St. Andrews.
The family extends sincere thanks to the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital caregivers on 4NW for the exemplary care accorded to Betty Lou. A celebration of Betty Lou’s life will be held at a later date to be determined. For those wishing to make a donation in memory of Betty Lou, support of local SPCAs is suggested. Bishops Funeral Home, 540 Woodstock Road, Fredericton NB, have been entrusted with the arrangements. Sharing of memories and condolences may be expressed at www.bishopsfuneralhome.com
