In Loving Memory (1953-2023) ~

On October 12, 2023, Elizabeth (Bette) Ann Krahn of Morden, MB and formerly of Creston, B.C. passed away at the age of 69 years old at the Boundary Trails Health Centre in Winkler, Manitoba.

Bette was born and raised in Altona, Manitoba. She was the second of seven children to Frank and Elizabeth Krahn. She attended school in the community and in 1971 married her husband, Ben at the age of 17. Together they had three children and their family lived in several communities in southern Manitoba before settling in Creston, B.C. in 1993.

Bette worked as a health care aide and volunteered with the local hospice society. She loved to read, to spend time with her loved ones, to make people laugh and to sing. To know Bette was to know humour and compassion. Her faith in God helped her through many challenging times in life and she was always there for any person who needed her- a voice of wisdom, kindness and forgiveness.

Bette is survived by her daughter, Carla (Dave) and her sons, Steven (Stacy) and Mike (Desiree); by her grandchildren: Liam, Sydney, Tanner, Matthew, Marshall and Marley as well as her sisters, Judy, Lori and Connie and her brothers, Rick and Ed and a host of extended family and good friends.

She was predeceased by her parents, her brother, Bill and her husband, Ben.

A celebration of life and ash interment will take place in Creston, B.C. in the summer of 2024.

Her children would like to thank the nurses and physicians at Boundary Trails Health Centre, the community palliative nurses and Dr. Tanja Borchers for their wonderful care of Bette.
