      REID, Betty-Kay
      REID, Betty-Kay - Passed away peacefully at age 82 on April 16, 2008, in Parkstone Enhanced Care, Halifax, after several years of declining health. Born in San Francisco, Betty-Kay was a daughter of Thomas and Betty Ching, and grew up in Winnipeg, Man. She is survived by her husband, Don; daughter, Lorabeth Ritch and son-in-law Murray Ritch; son, Tim, and very special grandson, Stuart Ritch. She was predeceased by her sister, Lilian, and brother, Tim. Betty-Kay was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and good friend. Wherever she went and whatever she was involved in, Betty-Kay made close and lasting friendships. She particularly enjoyed over 60 years of fellowship in Beta Sigma Phi sorority. She loved her part-time job in the Halifax Citadel office of The Salvation Army, where she worked for 20 years. Betty-Kay was an active golfer and curler, and served as president of the ladies division of both Brightwood Golf Club and Dartmouth Curling Club, as well as president of
      the board of the Halifax Protestant Orphanage. For many years, Thursday bridge club was a highlight of her week. She loved to be busy, but Betty-Kay was happiest spending time with her family and her friends. They will remember her great sense of style as well as how much fun she was. Betty-Kay's petite stature belied her strong will and spirit. The family wishes to thank the staff at Parkstone for the care they gave Betty-Kay, and for the kindness they always showed to Don. Visitation will be 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, April 20, in J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 2666 Windsor St., Halifax. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, April 21, in First Baptist Church, 1300 Oxford St., Halifax. Because Betty-Kay loved them, flowers will be gladly received, or donations may be made to Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of your choice.
