We Remember

ROMSES, Betty C.

March 2, 1931 — September 15, 2015

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Betty Romses. She passed away on September 15, 2015 in the care of Hospice House after a courageous battle with cancer, never losing her wit or sense of humour.


Betty is survived by her loving husband, Donald to whom she was married for 62 years; her son Don Jr. of Okanagan Falls with grandchildren Michael and Sage of Penticton; son Kelly of Surrey; her brother and sister-in-law, Lyle and Jerry Ann McNeil of Christina Lake; brother-in-law, Roger Romses and wife Pat of West Vancouver, and many nieces and nephews.


Don and Betty retired to Peachland from the Vancouver area in 1993 and later moved to West Kelowna in 2011.


Betty’s love of chocolate led her to be a manager for Purdy’s Chocolates while in Vancouver. When Betty retired, her skill to make and work with chocolate led her to be a part of many Peachland Christmas craft fairs.


Betty loved the outdoors which included boating in the summer, skiing in the winter and RV vacations year around with family and friends. Betty and Don also enjoyed bus trips and cruises to many parts of the world.


Thank you to all the nurses and volunteers at the Hospice House for their loving and special care of Betty.
