A few months short of her 100th birthday, Bette passed away in Muirfield
Care Home, Gullane which had been her home for the past three years.
A visitor to Garvald for weekends and holidays from her home in Leith
for almost 90 years, she was a loyal supporter of village events, helping
in the kitchen and baking for the teas. She also attended Garvald
Church, and her 80th birthday saw her extended family join her in the
Stables for a surprise celebration.
She always took a keen interest in the latest village news, and had a
remarkable memory for stories of the people she had met and events
which had happened during her remarkable life.
Her funeral will be held at 10am on Friday 3rd July at Seafield
Crematorium, under the Coronavirus restrictions, but can be live

Our condolences go to her son, Mark, at Ballymoss.
