Obituary for Betty Scriver (McColl)

SCRIVER, Betty Ann (McColl)
March 19, 1941 – March 11, 2024

Betty is with our Lord Jesus. She passed away on Monday, March 11, 2024 at Peterborough Regional Health Centre at the age of 82. Betty was loved, cherished, and will be deeply missed by her husband, Reed, together for 65 years. She was the loving Mom of Mark (Mary Lynn), Jim (Chris), Ray (Brenda), Rob (the late Gloria), Linda (Paul), and Tim. The proud Grandmother of Tyler, Mitchell, Arron, Rachel, Emily (Carlos), Joe, and great-grandmother of Elliot. Loving sister of Bill McColl and predeceased by five siblings. Betty will be truly missed by her extended Church family at Selwyn Outreach Centre and by her close friends, whom she held dear, Rhoda (the late Ron) McClure), and Colleen (Steve) Condon. Betty loved the Lord, she loved helping others, and had a kind and generous heart. She sat on various church committees in the service of others and was a board member for the Pregnancy Crisis Centre. She was always ready to laugh and have fun – she brought joy to any gathering and played a mean game of Yahtzee! She loved her family more than anything. She created a warm and inviting home, and always made room for others at the table. Betty – Mom, you will be deeply and truly missed. Until we meet again – ‘Don’t forget you’re loved!’

There will be a celebration of life on Saturday, April 6, 2024 at the Selwyn Outreach Centre – 2686 Lakefield Road, Selwyn, Ontario.
