Your wings were ready mom, but our hearts were not. On Friday, January 29, 2021, surrounded by her family, Betty Alice Presley joined the love of her life just shy of her 85th Birthday. She never complained as dementia and cancer tried controlling her life. Her love for music, dancing, and joking around was always present. Mom was making us laugh right till the end.
Wife of the late Jerry Presley (1979), Betty loved her kids very much; Dave (Brenda) Presley, Jeffery Presley (2013) & Tracy (Wendell) Drysdale,
Betty will be missed by her sister-in-law Elaine Presley, extended family Chantelle (Drysdale), Kevin, Jasmine & Aislinn Diachina, foster siblings Eric and Cathy Battle, and her many nieces and nephews. Betty is predeceased by her brother Ron and sister-in-law Noreen Sutton.
Mom enjoyed her outings with friends, garage sales, dinners, and drives. Thank you to the wonderful individuals who helped care for mom this past year; Dr. Lebert from Bluewater Health Oncology, Dr. Kareemi, London Cancer Clinic, the VON Day Program, MGM Day Program, VON Care Partners, DR. Kim & Staff, and the St. Joseph Hospice.
Due to COVID there will be no public funeral, mom will be laid to rest at Lakeview Cemetery in the Presley Family plot. Donations in sympathy can be expressed through St. Joseph Hospice.
Arrangements are entrusted to Gilpin Funeral Chapel, 123 King Street East in Forest 519-786-4964. Please leave a memory or condolence online at www.GilpinFuneralChapel.com
