CHASE, Elizabeth ‘Betty’ Helen (nee Montgomery) R.N. – Passed away peacefully at Pleasant Meadow Manor, Norwood, on Friday, April 30, 2021. Betty, formerly of Peterborough and born in Tweed, was 83 years of age.
Beloved wife of the late James Chase for 58 years. Dear mother of Andrew (Lori) and David (Joy). Loving Nan of Ethan and Aaron. Sister of Robert Montgomery (late Eleanor) and the late Don Montgomery (late Moira). Betty will be dearly missed by many family and friends.
Betty was part of the Peterborough’s Civic Hospital nursing graduating class of 1958, where she spent the majority of her 39-year career working in the operating room. Betty was an avid sports fan and enjoyed watching her beloved Toronto Blue Jays and Maple Leafs. She was also found at various local rinks cheering on her favourite hockey teams. Betty was always her boy’s biggest sports fan, rarely missing a hockey, baseball, soccer game or practice. Betty cherished her time the most when she was with her grandsons. Whether at the ski hill, ball diamond or football field, she was always there to cheer them on. Her loving and caring soul will be greatly missed, and she will forever be in our hearts.
A private service will be held with immediate family only. A memorial with extended family will be held at a later date when it is safe to do so. Donations in Betty’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated. Condolences to the family may be made online, through
A special “thank you” to the staff and doctors of Pleasant Meadow Manor, Norwood, for the kindness and care they extended to both Jim and Betty Chase during their stays.

I am so saddened to learn of Betty’s death. She was a nursing classmate and a true friend. I have wonderful memories of our many walks together on the trails around Peterborough.

The truly first memories I have of Betty are growing up with her and brother Don on the family farm at Lodgeroom Corners just west of Tweed. Betty was always the quiet one but held her own against teasing brothers. Like the time a half peeled potato was thrown when the teasing became just too much for her--missed us but not the kitchen window. We immediately pointed to Betty as the culprit. But she had a secret weapon in her back pocket--her dad, being always fair, heard her side of the story, and came down against us (the cause) not Betty (the effect). In the 50 to 60 ties, Don, Betty, and I left the farm (but not forgotten) to chase our careers, get married, and start our own families, and the farm was sold. In the late 90 ties, Elinor and I connected closely again with Betty and Jim in meeting in Tweed to visit our deceased family members and update our family's lives. My Elinor is buried next to my family, as is Jim, and as will be Betty when permitted. Me too when the time arrives.
Rest in peace, "sis". And to all out there reading this----take care and stay safe.
Robert (Uncle Bob) Montgomery

It was so good to have had Jim and Betty as neighbors for almost 50 years. Although there are new people living there, it will always be the Chase house to us. In the fall, Betty was the first one on the street to start raking leaves - a job that never ended. Our prayers are with you. Ray and Marilyn Dyck

Sad to hear of Aunt Betty's passing. Being separated from Jim, not all that long, and suffering from Alzheimer's disease, was time for her to say goodbye. A blessing really.
Pete and I send our condolences to her family and we will remember her quiet smile and her little chuckles at Uncle Jim.
Take care and hugs

Alida and I remember our first meeting with Betty at the Football Field of Kenner Collegiate in Peterborough. A faithful Grandma that braved the cold weather with the rest of us as we watched the kids playing Football. That was dedication as some of the game days were not only cooler but also wet. She had been there for her boys now she was there for her Grandsons.

Betty was a quiet supporter of her family and friends. When we visited in their home she was the quiet one while her Jim did all the talking. Jim was the Ring Master at the Circus - Betty was the beauty that rode around quietly on horse back in the center ring while Jim told everyone what they needed to hear.

For me, it spoke of her faithfulness which was always there for the family. She was there for Jim as they went almost daily for coffee at McDonalds with their friends. I came over to greet them from time to time as we also were part of that Coffee Crowd at a different table. Betty smiled and Jim talked.

Yes it was later in life and the tragedy of the Dementias claimed their lives. Later, when both were in the hospital together I visited the two on that same floor. Jim was roaming around at the time of one visit. I sat with Betty and talked about the days at the Football Field. She smiled. Some memories were erratic but others still made her smile. Like a good nurse, she listened and I talked.

When I write this to her family, it may sound to some that I have known Jim and Betty along time, No, that wasn't the case. But is was through friendship and knowing their son Dave and his family that the respect and admiration came.

God bless you all. The struggle is over but memories will grow stronger and favorite stories will keep you.

Lots of Love,
Murray and Alida Lincoln (the adopted Grandpa and Grandma)
