January 14, 1919 – December 23, 2007
Age 88, beloved wife of the late Walter C. Slack.
Betty is survived by her five children: Donald Slack, Julianne (Stephen) Baron, Peter (Kathy) Slack, Paul (Sharon) Slack and Wendy (David) Swanson; 11 grandchildren: Craig (Jennifer), Kevin, Ben (Lisa), Tara, Sean, Byron, Adam, Tyson, Amy, Michael, Kelci, and Erik; four great-grandchildren, Ethan, McKenzie, Kendra and Marissa. Also survived by sisters, Jessie (Allan) McGill and Stewart (Neil) McKinnon and many nieces and nephews.
Born in Edmonton and resident of Mission, BC for 61 years. Awarded a life-time membership in the Mission Memorial Hospital Ladies Auxiliary for over 50 years of dedicated volunteer service.

The epitome of a daughter, sister, mother, grandmother and friend; loving, gracious, with a benevolent spirit and proud of her Scottish heritage.
Special thanks to her friends and staff at the Carrington House Retirement Community and The Mission Medical Group.
