We Remember

FREDERIKSEN, Elizabeth Ellen “Betty”

August 25, 1938 — October 26, 2023

Born in Winnipeg, MB on August 25, 1938, Betty Frederiksen passed away peacefully on October 26, 2023.

Betty was an incredible wife & mother. She dedicated herself to both supporting Carl’s endeavours at Danish Bakery and nurturing their children, all while pursuing a fulfilling career as a nurse. 20 years of her service as a nurse was spent working at Kelowna General Hospital. Her tireless efforts and unwavering commitment created a profound impact on the lives of those she cared for and inspired those around her. She leaves behind her loving husband of 62 years, Carl; her son, Dennis, daughter-in-law, Pat, and grandsons, Austin (Ashley) and Cole; and her son, Ken, and daughter-in-law, Sandi Horning.

Betty will be sorely missed and lovingly remembered.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the KGH Foundation.

    To Carl, Dennis and Ken and family- Lorne and I send our love and heartfelt sympathy at this sad time. I have such fond memories of the three years in training with Betty! Wherever Betty was, there was laughter and fun. It was a special treat to move to Kelowna, and renew this special friendship. She will be missed by our whole class.


    Ken, I am so sorry about your Mom. I can’t remember why I called your Mom so many years ago but I do remember her lovingly calling you “Kenny”.
    Both you and Sandy have had a rough few years. I wish you peace and comfort.
    Thinking of you.
