SHARPE, Elizabeth “Bette” -
It is with deep sorrow that we announce that our matriarch, Elizabeth Sharpe (née Atkin) passed on March 4th 2019. She is predeceased by her loving husband David and two sons John (Nancy) and Brian. Bette was born on September 22nd 1923 in Leamington, Ontario. She lived a life full of immeasurable love for her family who equally adored her. Bette will be sadly missed by her two loving daughters Joanne and Nancy (Richard) and her adoring grandchildren Ian, David (Leah) and Kevin. She will be remembered for her eagerness to learn taking history classes well into her 90’s as well as her amazing memory sharing her vast experiences as stories to anyone who would listen. Most of all, Bette enjoyed summers on Mary Lake at the family cottage surrounded by all the family and friends she could find beds and food for. Visitation will be held at W.C. TOWN FUNERAL CHAPEL, 110 Dundas Street East, Whitby on Thursday, March 7th 2019 from 4 – 9pm.

Tim and I always sensed your mother's vitality, enthusiasm for history and public service. Her strong will and independent spirit served her well as she traveled her life's journey. The characteristics that served her so well are evident in the spirit you show and she no doubt was very proud of you Joanne. Our deep condolences go out to the whole family and may the wonderful memories you all have of Bette help you through this difficult time. Mourn but do not despair.....Job 14: 14,15
