Betty was born in Prince Rupert and attended school and graduated from the Annunciation Catholic School in Prince Rupert. She worked at the Woolworth & forestry office in Prince Rupert.

On October 1937, she married Jim MacDougall and started what she considered the most important part of her life, having a husband and family. All of her children were born in Prince Rupert. In 1968 the family moved to Terrace, BC and life continued. As the children grew, Betty went to work at Veritas Catholic School in Terrace for 24 years.

She enjoyed gardening all through her life with petunias as her special flower. For relaxation, she knitted everything for her family and for donations. She taught her family through her quiet perseverance to find a positive in each situation. She wanted patience and understanding from everyone. Betty had a great many friends in Terrace, Prince Rupert, and around the Province. She enjoyed travelling to Scotland and meeting long lost relatives and to Rome to see the Pope. She has gone to God in Peace.

Thank you to all the friends and family for all your support.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Betty MacDougall Memorial Fund at Northern Savings Credit Union. The funds will go towards a TheraKair air mattress for either Terraceview or Mills Memorial Hospital.
