Known to all as Betty, died on January 20, 2023, aged 93 years. Only daughter of the late Alexander and Margaret May Anderson. Betty was born in Rotherham Hospital and spent her early years at Terako (Waiau), with her elder brothers, William, Robert, and Douglas (all deceased). She trained as a Karitane nurse and was pleased to share her knowledge with her grand-niece and enjoyed her great-grand-nieces in her much later years. Betty provided care and companionship to her mother and brother Bob (Robert) as they aged at the family home in Rangiora. She was also kind of heart and generous towards her nephew and nieces. Betty was feisty and independent of mind, but eventually needed care herself which she found at the Homestead Ilam.
Sadly missed by family, friends and neighbours.
