Betty Joan Blue

Passed away peacefully in her 85th year on October 20, 2019 at the Palliative Care Unit of Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare close to her home in LaSalle, ON. Survived by her loving husband of 65 years, Jim Blue, and their children Don (Mary), David (Naghmeh), and Tricia (Rob). Also survived by her brother Doug Johnston (Kerry Lyn). Proud Grandmother of Kevin (Betsy), Marshall (Shaina), James, Daniel, Mattie, and Charlotte (Adam). Great Grandma of Owen, Cameron, Jalen, Baron, and Brooklyn. Remembered by in-laws Bertha Scott (Bill), John Blue (Marilyn), Don Blue (Lynda) and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her parents Edward and Winnifred Johnston and stepfather Albert Gammie, sisters Shirley MacLennan (Ross), Donna Cook (Don), brother Garry Johnston (Jo-Ann), and sister-in-law Betty Scott (Jack). Betty taught grades 1-8 in a one room schoolhouse in Kintail, ON in 1953-54. She moved to Windsor where she was a grade 3 Teacher on the original staff of Glenwood Elementary School in 1954-55. She raised three children, taught nursery school, and sold real estate for Pedler Real Estate. Betty was a member of Glenwood United Church and a former member of the May Court Club of Windsor. Betty loved her grandchildren and followed each one of them closely, enjoying their many academic and athletic achievements. Her greatest happiness was when everyone was together for family celebrations and she showed us how to be kind to one another.
