Betsy Drew Briggs



It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Betsy Drew Briggs of St. Albert on September 10, 2018 at the age of 85 years.

Her caring, loving, and polite personality, generosity, sense of humour, and her artistic, creative genius will be greatly missed and remembered by her son, Jackson (Sandra); daughters: Liz (Bill), Shelby, and Dee-Dee (Rick); grandchildren: Jennifer, Brooke, Berkley, Ben, Sam, Sydney and Juliet; nine great-grandchildren; adored lifelong friends and relatives; and new friends at the Youville Home.

Betsy was predeceased by her parents, Otis and Vera Bishopric; and beloved sister, Barbara Lesslie.

A commemorative plaque or two are planned for the City’s parks to recognize her superb landscape and gardening skills, love of nature, and contribution to the early stages of St. Albert’s Arts and Drama community.

At Betsy’s request, no Funeral Service will be held.

Betsy was a true animal lover. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made in Betsy’s name to The Edmonton Humane Society, 13620 163 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5V 0B2.

A special thank-you to the extraordinary staff and volunteers at the Youville Home. We will never forget your kindness, compassion and professionalism.

In Loving Memory of
Betsy Drew Briggs
(Maiden: Bishopric)
