Betty Cochrane Telford

June 11th, 1941 - May 9th, 2015 – It is with heavy hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Bon­nie Smith at the age of 73. Although she had been fight­ing a battle with can­cer for over 2 years, her death was very sud­den, but peace­ful, and she was sur­rounded by her fam­ily at her home in Ed­mon­ton. She will for­ever be loved and re­mem­bered by her daugh­ters, Nancy (Brett McCon­key) of Cal­gary, Al­berta, Mar­lene (Luis Lanza-Luna) of Van­cou­ver, Bri­tish Columbia; grand­sons, Jaden, Gar­rett, Ethan, Con­nor, Ash­ton and Cris­tian; sis­ter-in-law, Nora Webb (Lapenna); brother & sis­ter-in-laws, Bill & Norma (Smith) Robin­son of Kitch­ener, On­tario, Gary Smith of Lennoxville, Que­bec, and Larry & Lisette (Par­enteau) Smith of Rock For­est Que­bec; as well as sev­eral nieces, neph­ews, great-nieces and neph­ews, cousins and count­less friends and neigh­bors. She is pre­de­ceased by her hus­band, Robert P. Smith; par­ents, Blanche (Per­ron) & Floyd Webb; and brother, Wen­dell Webb. As a reg­is­tered nurse, she de­voted her life to car­ing for and help­ing peo­ple in need. She did so with ex­treme pride and dili­gence and con­tin­ued to do so even af­ter she re­tired and when she be­came ill. A fu­neral mass will be held in her honor at 11 a.m., Thurs­day, May 28th, 2015 at St. Thomas More Parish (210 Had­dow Close NW, Ed­mon­ton). Cre­ma­tion has taken place, and in­tern­ment will be in the fam­ily plot with her par­ents in Stanstead, Que­bec. De­tails for this will be given at a later date. If de­sired, honor/me­mo­rial dona­tions can be made to WIN House (win­house.org) or Wings of Prov­i­dence Cri­sis Shel­ter (wing­sof­prov­i­dence.ca).
