Welcome to the memorial page for

Betty Lou (Hillyer) Byers

June 15, 2017

On Wednesday, June 15th, 2017, at John Joseph Place, Owen Sound, in her 86th year.  Betty, dedicated wife of the late Mervyn Byers.  Loving mother of Susan Elliott (Jerry), Shannon Shaw (Greg), Steven Byers (Dawn), and Marc Byers. Proud grandmother of Rhonda, Mary-Jane, Jason, Jaret, Josh, Matt, Adam, Scott, Emmy Lou, Jake, Kaydee, and Brooke.  Predeceased by her sons Mike and Jeff, her daughter-in-law Marilyn, and her son-in-law Jerry.

Betty was a great lady with a lot of fight! She was the best cook on the East side. She always had a cigarette and a coffee waiting if you popped in and needed to talk. She was deeply loyal to her family and had a forgiving heart. Betty gave everything she had to her family.  She had a special place in her heart for animals, especially her dogs Minnie and Mouse. 

Here are a few things we learned from Betts

The love of cooking and canning and keeping your best recipes secret. 

Always have a good book on the go. 

Always have music playing!

A graveside service for Betty will be held at the Leith Cemetery, on Thursday, June 22nd, 2017 at 11:00am.
