Betty Finch PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 16 April 2014 12:44
Betty Finch of Brussels passed away suddenly at her residence on Wednesday, April 9, 2014. Born in Hamilton, Ontario on June 3, 1925, Betty was in her 89th year.
Betty was a woman of strong character, loving and kind of nature but a force to be reckoned with if she thought she was wronged. She was a people person.  A five-minute trip downtown would take her an hour as she always took time to visit the girls at the post office, bank and grocery store.  She was full of life and loved life.  She will be missed.  She was a modest woman with modest taste.  She had all that she needed and wanted in life except for one thing.  For the past 17 years she has been missing her sweetheart.  Now today she has it all.
Betty was the beloved wife of the late Tom Finch (April 26, 1997) and will be sadly missed by her children Marg Henderson, Bayfield; Gord and Dale Finch, RR1, Ethel; Linda and Jim McLellan, Exeter and Bev and Jim Hodgins, Ailsa Craig. Betty was the loving grandmother of Willy, Cory, Rob, Tracy, Ryan, Jeff, Lisa, Bevie, Jamie and Tommy, her 23 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
She was also loved by her sisters Yvonne Misener, Hamilton and Marg and Paul Town, Burlington, her sisters-in-law Reta Levrere and Mary Finch and brothers-in-law Jack Finch and Harry Finch. Betty was predeceased by her granddaughter Catherine and sisters Connie Couper and Freda Beazer.
Friends were received by the family on Sunday at the Schimanski Family Funeral Home. The complete funeral service was conducted at St. John's Anglican Church, Brussels, on Monday, April 14 officiated by Reverend Perry Chuipka. A remembrance of Betty was given by George Finch and, as a musical tribute to his grandmother, Jamie McLellan played the flute after the readings.
Carrying floral tributes were granddaughters Lisa Gropp, Tracy Grubb and Bevie Brennan.  Pallbearers were Willy Henderson, Cory Henderson, Rob Henderson, Ryan Finch, Jeff Finch, Tommy McHugh and Jamie McLellan. Burial is in Brussels Cemetery.
As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations to St. John's Anglican Church Building Fund or the Make A Wish Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
“There are no words to express our loss.
She took them with her because she was the boss.
There are holes in the floors of heaven.
And every raindrop is a tear of joy.”
