It is with great sadness that the family of Betty Jean Henneigh (Knopp) shares her passing at the family farm on Sunday, April 29th, 2018. Betty was born June 5TH, 1940, the first of 9 children to Marvin & Tootsie. She and her husband Ed wed in 1959 and moved to the family farm in the Condor district in 1968 where together they raised their 5 children.

Mom was an avid gardener with multiple gardens on the farm. She also worked at Qualtec Greenhouse where she could be found every growing season for the last 18 years. She was passionate about her family and enjoyed every gathering or visit and was looking forward to the arrival of her first, great grandchild this summer. She enjoyed cooking, baking, volunteering and visiting with friends. Her door was always open, a cup of tea and laughter were always included. She was deeply connected to her community and will be cherished by all those that knew and loved her.

She will be deeply missed by her daughter Gayle (Brian) Johannson of Spruceview, son Scott of Rocky Mountain House and step-daughter Robin, son Gene (Norma) of Caroline and children Megan (Stefan), Marley (Chris), and Dallas, son Loren (Lori) of Red Deer and children Chelsie, Amanda (Austyn), and Shae-Lynn, son Gary(Loretta) of Benalto and children Morgan, Nicole and Den.

She also leaves to mourn, her siblings, Ellen (Dick), Faye (Arelin), Lois, Keith (Hanna), Roger (Margaret), Norma (Mike), Neal, Steven (Sheri) and many nieces, nephews and special friends.

Betty was predeceased and welcomed home by her parents, husband Ed, grandson Justin, sister-in-law Joanne and brother-in-law Louis.

A Private Graveside Service for immediate and extended family will be held Friday, May 11th, 2018 at 11:00 am at the Leslieville Cemetery. Betty will be laid to rest beside her husband Ed and her grandson Justin.

A Celebration of Betty’s Life will follow at the Condor Community Center at 12:00 pm, where all are welcome.

Memorial donations may be made in her memory to Stars Air Ambulance.

Lance & Georgia Davis:
Really sad to hear this. Ed & Betty were such great neighbors, and Betty always brought a smile. We still laugh with our kids, when we watched thier place when they went on a trip one time - had to collect eggs a couple times a day and a really cranky rooster put the run on us a few times. Had not seen in a while, which we kick ourselves for.
Sheralyn and Ken Dobos, Joanne McRae:
Our hearts and prayers go out to you all. Betty was a terrific neighbour and friend. We will remember her lovely smile, her caring manner, her beautiful gardens, and the many trips down the road for eggs that kept us connected. Betty will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Cecil and Carol Hoven:
So sorry for you all. Your mother was a very special lady whom we have some great memories that we will always treasure. When she took care of dad we all looked forward to her cheery visits and her baking powder biscuits! She will be missed.
Hugs to all. We are unable to get to her celebration of life but will be thinking of you,Cecil and Carol.
