Elizabeth “Betty” Lawrence

On the morning of Friday,  November 3rd, 2017 Elizabeth (Betty) Louise Lawrence passed away peacefully in her sleep at PEC Memorial Hospital, Picton. Betty’s husband Robert and son David were at her bedside. Betty succumbed to a pernicious cancer despite her tremendous strength. Betty and Bob were grateful for the constant prayers of the parish during her illness. The family extends special thanks to our many friends and neighbours who provided help and support. Betty is sorely missed by her loving husband Robert, son David (Jill), brothers Waldi (Joyce) Wawrykow and Michael (Colleen) Wawrykow, sisters Margy Wawrykow and Marion Korolyk, along with many friends and family across Canada. Betty was an avid gardener, energetic runner/ cyclist and enthusiastic and blue-ribbon winning photographer. She was also a devoted wife and mother with endless energy and a generous spirit. Betty was an active member of St. Gregory the Great Roman Catholic Church in Picton. Born in Gimli, Manitoba to Dan Wawrykow and Mary Hrynyshyn, Betty graduated from Gimli High School, worked as an office professional in Winnipeg and took on the role of a military spouse, traveling extensively overseas and across Canada before settling in Prince Edward County. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, November 10th at St. Gregory the Great Roman Catholic Church,  7 Church Street, Picton. Father Robert Chisholm officiating. Arrangements entrusted to the Ainsworth Funeral Home, 288 Noxon Avenue, Wellington
