We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Elizabeth Mary “Betty” (O’Hearon) Crowe, at the age of 87. Betty passed away peacefully with her family by her side at Orchard View Long Term Care Home on Wednesday, January 11, 2023.
Betty was born on August 3, 1935, to the late Raymond and Margaret (Bourgeois) O’Hearon in Springhill, NS.
The military brought Betty and her husband Jack, as well as their three children to Oromocto in the early 70’s. She started work at the Oromocto Hotel, then moved into the food service industry for the Department of National Defense, from which she retired after a long and dedicated career. Betty was known for her quick wit and great sense of humor, and she left a lasting impression on everyone she met.
Betty is survived by her son, John; daughter, Marlene (Mike); granddaughters, Jennifer (Steve, aka “sexypants”), Stephanie (Aaron); grandsons, Christopher (McKayla), Curtis, and Gordie, as well as great-grandchildren, Madysen, Kallie, Addie, Stephanie, Harley, Harley-Anne, and Ashton. Betty also loved her beloved 4-legged BooBoo (aka Ozwald).
In addition to her parents, Betty is predeceased by her loving husband Jack Crowe; cherished daughter, Donna, and her brothers and sisters.
The family would like to send their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Orchard View Long Term Care Home for the care an love given to Betty.
In keeping with Betty’s wishes, there will be no funeral service or visitation. A private family interment will take place at a later date in Springhill, NS. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
