Betty Marie (Saunders) Hanley
Unexpectedly at her residence on April 30, 2022, Mrs. Betty Marie (Saunders) Hanley, beloved wife of G. Ross Hanley of Back Bay NB. Born at Saint John NB on March 12, 1956, she was a daughter of the late George and Lillian (King) Saunders.
A loving wife, mother, stepmother grandmother and sister, she is survived by her husband Ross, her beloved son: Troy Saunders (Laura Fudge); step sons: William Hanley of Back Bay NB and Garry Hanley (Amanda Harmon) of St. George; her step daughter: Leta (Fred) Brennan of St. George NB; her beloved grandchildren: Arielle, Madaline, Jackson, Athena and Ayla; brothers: George Saunders of Saint John NB and Jimmy (Hazel) Saunders of Smithtown NB; her sisters: Helen Lynch (Ernest Hatt) of St. George NB, Cathy Lemoine of Quispamsis NB and June Reid of Saint John NB as well as several, nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her twin sister in infancy as well as her much beloved granddaughter Cadence.
Prior to her failing health, Betty worked years ago at Point Lepreau as a laborer. She then moved to St. George where she owned and operated Daly's Convenience for a number of years, where she met her husband Ross. Her and Ross then moved to Back Bay where she helped Ross in his fishing business and then began working for Kindred Care where she cared for many area seniors, whom she truly cared for with passion.
In earlier years when her health allowed her to, Betty used to enjoy traveling with Ross to Florida to their winter haven and spending time there with friends. Recently she enjoyed the simple pleasures such as enjoying her home on the water and the nature around it, her games on her computer, and the company of her beloved Ross and her companion Kiwi. She will be sadly missed by her family and all who knew her.
In keeping with Betty's wishes, there will be no visiting or service. A celebration of Betty's life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch # 40 on Saturday, May 14, 2022 from 2-4 pm. In Betty's memory, donations to a charity of the donor's choice would be appreciated by the family.
