Betty

Betty Cole


Betty grew up in Okotoks and has been a faithful and much treasured member of St. Peter’s parish since 1956 when she married her Anglican husband. She is the mother of three, grandmother of seven and a great grandmother of two.


Betty is a part of Chinook Country Quilters who meet here each Monday. She has made quilts for all her family members and for the Children’s Hospital. In the winter she knits toques for the Mustard Seed which are given to their guests.
For many years Betty was a vital part of The Royal Purple charitable organization which provided catering for large and small banquets, luncheons and fundraisers supporting the Okotoks community. She believes that supporting one another is what makes a community strong and in turn has appreciated the support in her own life. She has carried that ministry and belief over into her activities at St. Peter’s, providing invaluable assistance to whomever is organizing lunches, funerals and other forms of outreach involving food.
Betty belongs to St. Peter's Wednesday morning Bible study gaining more knowledge of Jesus each week and appreciating others' points of view through discussions. She is also a part of the Sunday night fellowship group. She rarely misses an opportunity to learn more about her faith and lives it out in her daily life.
Betty gained tremendous reassurance from a Bible verse sewn into the Victoria's quilt she received a few years ago while taking chemo therapy. It remains a favourite: Joshua 1:9, ”Be strong and courageous…for the Lord your God will be with you.” Her father died when she was 12 yrs. old and his favourite Bible passage, Psalm 23, means a lot, as it brought him great comfort.
