In loving memory of Barbara Elizabeth Norris (Nee Bowes) – July 30, 1926 to March 29, 2013. It is with deep sadness we announce the death of our mother, Betty. After battling a lengthy illness, Betty passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of
March 29, 2013. Predeceased by Cliff, her husband of 58 years who died in 2009, she is survived by her youngest brother, Alan, and her four children, Jeannie, Ellie, Wayne and Gordon.
Born to Mabel and Arthur Bowes in Viking, Alberta, she was one of six children including a sister Audrey, and brothers, Jim, Arthur, Jack, and Alan. The family moved to Richmond, B.C when she was 10 years old. At the age of 23 she and Cliff married, and shortly after moved to Kamloops, B.C. Cliff established a
successful machinist business there. Raising four children, they remained in Kamloops until retiring to
Sorrento, B.C. in 1975. They relocated to Parkside Estates in nearby Chase, B.C. in 2006. Since Cliff’s
passing in 2009, Betty had remained at Parkside, living independently, until her own death.
Mom enjoyed socializing, made friends easily, and had a wide circle of friends, some known for many
years, others for only a few, and some perhaps just a little while. Although many are no longer with us,
all had been most precious to her. Friendship was one of the things she valued most of all.
Please join us on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 11am for a memorial service in her honor, to be held at St.
Andrew’s Church, 845 Thompson Avenue, Chase, B.C.
In lieu of flowers, we know mom would be pleased if donations were made to the nearest Food Bank.
We miss you so much, mom. Rest in peace.
