Betty Van Staalduine, beloved wife of the late John Van Staalduine for 62 years, died on Friday, December 23, 2022.
Betty is survived by their 5 children: Jerry and his wife, Cathy and their children, Glenn, Blair and Morgan; Lenora; Lyndon (Moose) and his wife Jackie and their children, Kaitlyn and husband Grant Heidinger, Brady and Kasi; Patti and her partner Darcy Faller and their children, Amanda and husband Kris Kristianson, son Kallum, Kristle and partner Dustin Baynham, son Bradly and Vance; Tim and his wife Debra; as well as 2 sisters: Sylvia Robinson and Norma Graham. Betty moved into Foremost following John’s death in 2018 and enjoyed her time in the Fairway manor.
This poem written by Betty, awarded a silver medal at the southeast zone of the Alberta 55+ Games, pretty much sums up her life philosophy.

Like women everywhere I have lived my life. I didn’t climb a mountain. I didn’t fly to the moon. I didn’t discover penicillin. I raised my family. Five beautiful children make their way in the world. I kept my home. I loved my neighbour. I laughed, I cried. I am at peace. I have lived well.
There will be no formal Funeral Service held.
If you wish to do something in Betty’s memory, stop and smell the flowers, donate to a favourite charity, hug the ones you love.
