Betty Thelma McFarlan (née Elliott) of Kincardine, died peacefully, with family by her side, at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Kincardine, Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017, at the age of 83. Beloved wife of Ken McFarlan. Dear mother of Andy McFarlan of Stittsville and Steve (Joanne) McFarlan of Kincardine. Missed by grandchildren, John, Amanda, Anna, David and Scott McFarlan. Survived by her brother, Bill (Betty) Elliott; and sister-in-law, Donna Elliott, all of Kincardine. Fondly remembered by nieces, nephews, friends and members of the McFarlan family. Predeceased by her brothers, Joe Elliott, Jim Elliott and Bert Elliott (Marjorie); and sister, Edith Simpson (Donald). Betty’s focus was always family and friends. She loved entertaining, cooking and baking for the numerous people she welcomed to her home over the years. She was a notoriously great cook and her butter tarts are remembered by many. She also enjoyed music, gardening, spending time at the cottage, and a good game of cards. A retired teacher, she was honoured last year by the South Bruce branch of the Retired Women Teachers of Ontario (RWTO), on the 60th anniversary of the organization. Betty was teaching in Hamilton in 1956, and then moved to Kincardine and taught all eight grades at a rural school on the 12th of Huron Township. She stayed home to raise her family and then returned to teaching at W.E. Thompson Public School in Kincardine before retiring. The funeral service to celebrate Betty’s life will be conducted from the Kincardine United Church, Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017, at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
