August 31, 1931 - January 25, 2024

In Loving Memory ~

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Betty Johnson. Betty passed away peacefully in Lacombe on January 25, 2024, at the age of 92.

Betty was born in Lacombe to William and Ethel Suitor and was the youngest of 3 children. Her early years were spent between the family farm, Spring Valley, Meadowbrook, and Lacombe.

After completing grade 12, Betty worked as a telephone operator with the Lacombe Telephone until her marriage to Earl Johnson on June 30, 1951; this marked the beginning of a remarkable 61-year journey together.

Establishing a dairy farm west of Lacombe, Betty and Earl dedicated themselves to operating the farm and raising their five boys.

In 1983, they retired from farming, spending their winters in sunny California, and summers playing golf and camping with friends and family. In 2005, Betty and Earl made the transition to town life. Betty found enjoyment in socializing with friends at the PepperTree, exercising at Curves, and having loved ones over for coffee and treats.

Betty is survived by her sons, Bill (Barb), Doug (Carolyn), Ken (Linda), her daughter-in-law, Pat, 17 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.

Betty is predeceased by her husband, Earl, sons, Dick and Allan.

The family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the staff in the Memory Care Unit at Royal Oak where she received extraordinary care and attention.

Please join us in celebrating the life of Betty Johnson on February 10, 2024, between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm in the Gustafson Room at the Best Western Hotel in Lacombe.
