One Heck of a Lady...

Today was a very sad day for the Williams/Orr family.

Owens adored Grandma Betty or Beatrice Laura Orr died this morning from complications from a lung infection she got early last week. She was 96.

This is a woman survived by 2 children, 7 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren and has been incredibly involved and special to us all. She has lived through two world wars, lived a full life, watched her own daughter almost die, lose a husband, a son in law and never lost her faith despite many heartbreaks. She was, in short, a very unique and very strong woman.

Her unwavering support, humour, kindness, generosity and love will be so sorely missed. Owen and I are so pleased our children got to know her.

13 August, 1913 - 26 May 2010. What a life!

Sounds like an amazing lady Mon.
I think it is wonderful for your kids to have had a great grandma! Ollie still has a great grandad and I think it is a very special thing that they will remember.
My thoughts are with you, Owen and the family.
