Betty Jean D’argis

August 2nd, 1949 to October 3, 2018

Betty passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Winnipeg.  Dearly loved wife of Rodney for 47 years.  She also leaves behind her children, Brent (Jen) and Michelle (Al).  She was a very proud and loving grandmother to Coleman, Sadie and Challen.  She is also survived by her sister and best friend, Mary Romaniuk, in-laws; Sharon and Tom McBurney and Dolores and Moe Romaniuk, as well as her cherished nieces and nephews and their families.

Betty loved children and the many years she spent working with them as an Educational Assistant, going above and beyond.  She was always there for her friends and family with an open heart and a willing hand.  She was family first, a great friend, a wonderful grandma, Nurse Betty, sister confidant, fun traveling companion and life saver.  She loved travelling and gathering her family together, whether at home or Falcon Lake, to share her delicious meals.  Although vertically challenged, people quickly learned to keep on her good side.

As much as her family meant to her, her foundation was Rod.  They always took care of one another and had a marriage to aspire to.  True partners in life and love.

Her lifelong nemesis was diabetes.  As much as she hated it, it made her stronger and she didn’t let it define her.  It motivated her to live life to the fullest.

Cremation has taken place and a private family service is to be held. 

Donations in Betty’s memory can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
