Svea Elizabeth (Betty) Carlson passed away peacefully in her sleep at Mt. Cartier Court in the early morning hours Saturday, May 18, 2013 at the age of 90 years. In keeping with Betty’s wishes there will be no formal funeral service.
Betty was born in Alberta on December 12, 1922. In her younger years she enjoyed playing ball and bowling. She was an avid reader and good cook: nobody made better gravy – and she enjoyed having her family for dinner every Sunday. Betty worked for the City of Revelstoke for many years and she and husband Andy travelled extensively for the Pythian and DOKK Lodges after retirement.
Betty was predeceased by her husband, Andrew in 1999. She is survived by her son, Gary (Fran) and daughter, Wendy (Bob) Kristensen; four grandchildren: Kyle (Anna Swayze) Kristensen, Brodie (Sarah) Kristensen, Kirsten (Steve Krywa) Carlson and Kelsey Carlson; three great grandchildren: Bria, Kali and Anders Kristensen and her sister: Ona (Walter) Garvie as well as many nieces and nephews.
Cremation arrangements in the care of Brandon Bowers Funeral Home, Revelstoke.
