In life as in death, Betty (Elizabeth) Fitzgerald showed grace, dignity and a fighting spirit, passing away peacefully at her residence in Bothell on December 24, 2017. Betty was born in Saskatchewan, Canada January 12, 1926.

In 1946 she met Canadian 1st Petty Officer, John (Jack) Fitzgerald at a WWII dance in Victoria. After a whirlwind courtship she married Jack in a double wedding.

Betty resided in Bothell for the remainder of her life.

Jack passed away in 2013 and son John in 1995. Betty is survived by their children Michael (Carol), Maureen, Bob, Steven, Patty (Stephen), 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

She was the loving mom that all the neighborhood kids wanted, caring friend and loving sister, a committed woman of faith who volunteered in her church and was a member of the Bothell YMCA where she took Silver Sneakers fitness classes into her late 80s.
