Betty Hunt, RIP

We were saddened to hear of the death of member Michael Hunt’s wife Betty on Thursday, January 12th, 2017 and send our condolences to him.


Hello everyone;
I want to take this opportunity and thank everyone for all your kind words, letters, emails and visits to Betty and I over the last few weeks. On Jan 12th, at 1:15am Betty peacefully passed away at Northumberland Hills Hospital, but not before spending her last moments with her family. Everyone’s support is truly appreciated, and we will be holding a celebration of life for Betty in March and I will send more details to you closer to that time.

Betty’s obituary will be posted on line at Benson Shields website which is www.bensonfuneralhomes.com and in the two local Cobourg papers.
Regards; Michael
