On June 29, 2015, our beloved Mother, Betty Wohl, passed away peacefully at Riverview Health Centre.

She is survived by sons, Howard (Winnipeg) and Sandy (Vancouver), brother Jerry (Gloria), sister-in-law Kerry, grandchildren Marnie (Jeremiah) (Toronto), Michael (Amanda) (Ottawa) and Barry (Dara) (Boston) and great grandchildren Elorah, Serafina, Layla and Asher, nieces, nephews and cousins. Betty was predeceased by her husband Joe after over 50 years of marriage, by her parents Morris and Jennie Moscovitch, her in-laws Herschel and Malke Wohl, an infant son, Murray Sheldon, and her brothers Walter and Earl.

Pallbearers and Honorary Pallbearers were Marnie Wohl, Michael Wohl, Barry Wohl, Jeremiah Bennett, Marcy Dayan, Danny Moscovitch, Darrel Kilburn, Jerry Moscovitch, Ivor Berman, Gino Braha, Marilynn Moss, Sandy Moss, Sheldon Forgan, Harold Swick and Jim Davis.

As a teenager, Betty was a member of the Jewish Community Choir, Young Judea and the Jewish Girl Guides. As an adult, she was active in the Pioneer Women’s Organization. Joe and Betty were lifetime members of Bnay Abraham Synagogue where she was the first President of the Sisterhood and where she held various Executive positions; for over 30 years, Betty sent out donation cards. Mom and Dad contributed to many charities.

Mom and Dad loved to travel, open their home and Holiday table to family and many friends. Mom loved to knit, create needlepoint pictures and play Mah Jong (over 50 years). She often said that her greatest pleasure was the joy she derived from her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mom was an independent woman with an active mind who loved to read and do daily jumble and crossword puzzles as well as watch her favorite game show, Wheel of Fortune. Mom was a caring, sharing and giving woman who never spoke a bad word about any person or situation, even when her health began to fail.

A big thank you to all our family and friends who loved our Mother and to the staff in 3West at Riverview Health Centre for their understanding, caring and kindness. Donations may be made to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Manitoba.
