Elizabeth Theresa "Betty" Boyce
Although we make this announcement with heavy hearts, we are comforted in knowing that she is with God and her loved ones that passed on before her. Betty "Huck" Boyce, wife of Thomas "Tom" Boyce, passed away at her residence in St. John & St. Stephen Nursing Home, with her family by her side, on Saturday, July 14, 2012. Born May 30, 1931, she was a daughter of the late James and Mabel (Bennett) LeClair. Betty was an avid sports fan who bowled and played basketball, badminton, and softball, with her "Red Sox" team winning the title of Maritime Champions. She was very involved as a past president for St. Peter’s Church CWL, and also spent many hours volunteering with the North End Food Bank and North End Community Centre. She had a love of reading, shopping, time with family, and she and Tom enjoyed traveling many places together. Betty’s generous spirit will be missed by all who knew her.
Besides her beloved husband, Betty is survived by her children: Michael (Maureen), Susan Seely (Gregory), Patty Rasch (Stephen), and Mark (Tabatha); grandchildren: Jason, Tom, Kevin, Stephanie, Kristen, Jessica, Kyle, Jeremy, Rebecca, Kailey, Richard, Laurissa, and Joshua; several great-grandchildren; sisters, Helen McCluskey (Brad) and Irene Pye; sisters-in-law, Elsie, Pearl, and Mary; and several nieces and nephews.
