Ruth Elizabeth (Betty)  Couture

Passed on: October 1st, 2017

We are deeply saddened and sorry to announce the passing of much loved Betty Couture on Sunday October 1, 2017 after a long, hard, incredibly courageous battle with cancer.
After graduating from Sydney Academy she worked at Zellers in Sydney for 25 years, making many good friends with both staff and customers. Her favourite hobby was taking pictures and putting them on her Facebook page for all her friends and family to see. She liked to take drives to the country snapping photos of the beautiful colours, clouds and scenery with her husband Barry. She loved absolutely nothing more than to spend time with her husband and kids, the three people she was the closest to in this world.
Betty is survived by her husband of 48 years, Barry Couture (Sydney); her son, whom she loved more than life itself, Chris (Coxheath); her daughter-in-law, Lindsay, whom she loved like her own, and her favourite nephew, Bob Donovan (Suzanna/Faith in Calgary). Also her beloved grand-pets who always found a way to bring a smile to her face and make her happy, Holly and Iggy (Coxheath).
She was predeceased by her father and mother, George (Mildred) Hall; her wonderful sister, Inez (Leigh) Donovan, and her much loved and missed dog, Ruff.
We would like to sincerely thank her cancer doctor Ron MacCormick and his secretary Sonya, she loved both of them very much. Also, Dr. Wawrzyszyn (Pier Medical), Dr. D’Intino, Mr. Tom MacNeil and all those at the Lodge that Gives. A special thanks to all of the nurses at the Chemo Centre and Palliative Care Units who always treated her with so much care and respect, it was greatly appreciated.
As per her wishes, there will be no visitation and cremation has taken place. There will be a small service held at 11 a.m., Wednesday, October 4 at S.W. Chant and Son Funeral Home, 564 Alexandra St. in Sydney. Rev. Sheldon Chant to officiate. A private burial will be held at a later date for immediate family only at Hardwood Hill cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please send any donations in her memory to Tom MacNeil and the cancer patient fund at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Cancer Centre.
