Betty Anne McWhirter


Betty Anne McWhirter

The death of Betty Anne McWhirter, 62, of Jolicure, occurred at the Moncton Hospital on Sunday, August 26, 2018.  Born in Amherst, Betty Anne was a daughter of Arthur and the late Margerite Holland.

Betty Anne had worked at the Sackville Co-Op and the Amherst Canadian Tire for many years in addition to a period in Calgary with a large chartered accounting firm. She enjoyed time at the beach and giving gifts to her family and friends.  Most recently she made a cat quilt for her grandson, Easton.  She was a kind, generous and loving person who never had a bad word for anyone.  She was proud of her family and enjoyed spending time with her dad in Amherst.  She was a dedicated and loving wife and daughter, mother, grandmother, and friend.

She will be deeply missed by her husband of fourty-three years, Sidney McWhirter, of Jolicure; two sons, Jamie McWhirter, of Amherst and Evan McWhirter, at home; a grandson and the love of her life, Easton McWhirter, of Amherst, her father, Arthur Holland, of Amherst; her best friend, Jean Harrison of Amherst, as well as several nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.

Besides her mother, Betty Anne was predeceased by her sister, Brenda Holland.
