Jones, Betty

On Saturday, October 30, 2021, Betty Madeline Jones passed away at the age of 96, lovingly surrounded by family at Erie Shores Healthcare. Betty was born in 1925 in Carleton Corners, Nova Scotia. She became a Registered Nurse in 1947 at St. John General Hospital and was proud to administer one of the first penicillin shots. Her sense of humour, love of children and endless kindness made her a treasure to the pediatric unit in Leamington. A lively conversationalist, gracious host and natural storyteller, Betty brought joy to everyone she met and was known as “grandma” to many more than her own. Her memory will live on through every story, funny saying and song, a very long time after she’s gone. Betty is preceded in death by her father, Grant, mother, Lillian, siblings Kathleen, Grace, Sutton and Alden as well as husband James Jones. She is survived by her 3 children, Cathy, Dan and Karen as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
