June 15, 1928 – September 24, 2017
at the age of 89 years
On September 24, 2017 Betty passed away peacefully at Shuswap Lake General Hospital at the age of 89 years. Betty was born in Enderby, BC to Vic and Elsie Polson and at the age of 17 she married Bob Stroulger. Betty and Bob stayed on the Stroulger family farm until they moved to Kamloops in 1958. They moved to Eagle Bay in 1968 and to Salmon Arm in 1995. Betty will be remembered as a wonderful baker and cook. Her pies, buns and cinnamon buns were legendary and she could put together a delicious meal on a moment’s notice. Besides knitting and gardening, Betty enjoyed camping with Bob and travelling the back roads of BC. She also enjoyed the three cruises she took with Lynn.
Betty was predeceased by her parents and her loving husband Bob, as well as her sisters Jean, Helen, Eileen and Marj and her brother Morris. Betty is survived by three children, Lynn (Gord) Poeter of Edmonton; Gerry (Morgan) of West Kelowna and Maureen (Jim) McEwan of Tappen. Also surviving are three grandchildren, Kristen, Brent and Craig Poeter, all of Edmonton. Betty also leaves her brothers Keith (Yvonne) Polson and Hugh (Marj) Polson; her brother-in-law Pat (Edna) Stroulger and sister-in-law Pearl Polson, along with numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank the kind staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital for their attention to Betty. Thanks are also extended to Dr. Weiker for his care and compassion. At Betty’s request there will not be any service. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3.
