ZOOK Betty

Posted: August 5th, 2015



It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of BETTY ZOOK, beloved wife of the late Elvin Zook, on Sunday, July 26, 2015 at the age of 88 years in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Betty was the ninth child born to Wilfred and Laura Demers on July 9, 1927. She grew up in Skiff, AB., moving to Lethbridge in 1944, after her step-mother, Nellie, helped her get a job in the Eaton’s shoe department. In 1945, Betty moved to Vancouver where she trained to be a telephone operator for B.C. Telephones. She returned to Lethbridge and married Elvin Benson Zook on March 29, 1948.

Betty’s mischievous sense of humor entertained family and friends alike. She loved to cook and decorate for family celebrations and holiday times. In 1998, her good nature and deep Christian faith helped her accept her M.S. diagnosis without complaint. Betty was generous and very proud of her family. She treasured the visits and parties where she could watch everyone interacting and making happy family memories.

Betty will be lovingly remembered by her devoted children; Terry (Roch) Bruneau, Jim (Linda) Zook, Tom (Susan) Zook, Paul (Kim) Zook, and Brian (Barbara) Zook, her loving grandchildren; Darren (Corina) Bruneau, Byron Bruneau, Rochelle (Dustin) Hines, Nathan Bruneau, Alison Zook (Pete) Alana (Brian) Matsuo, Brad (Stephanie) Zook, Jennifer (Aaron) Cockburn, Nicole (Brad) Seeman, Kaeley (Tyler) Burgess, Breanna Zook, Jaelyn Zook and Jon Zook, as well as her great-grandchildren; Raluca and Gabriel Bruneau, Talus Hines, Mya and Mack Zook, Natalie Cockburn and Madison, Brooklyn and Kamryn Seeman.

Betty is also survived by her step-sister, Kae McCallion and brother, Don (Pat) Demers as well as many extended family and friends.

Betty was predeceased by her husband, Elvin, on February 16, 2003 and by her parents, Laura and Wilfred Demers, two sisters and six brothers.

Relatives and friends are invited to a Memorial Service at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, AB, on Thursday August 6, 2015 at 11:00 A.M., with Deacon Cliff Bogdan officiating.
