In loving memory of Betty Suderman, who died at Bethania Personal Care Home, Winnipeg, on June 3, 2022. She was born on August 24, 1932 to John and Sarah Peters of Winkler.
She will be deeply missed by daughters, Sara Jane Schmidt (Rick) and Marilyn Cameron (Norman); two grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; also by her brother Ron (Ginny) and sister-in-law Lena. She was predeceased by her husband Jake in 2021; daughter Betty Lou in 1962 and her brothers, Jimmy and John.
Betty was a wonderful, loving homemaker. She was a beautiful singer, performing at many weddings and funerals. She was a fine seamstress, sewing many of her own and her daughters' clothes. She loved to travel, read, embroider and cross-stitch and do volunteer work, including working with refugees. Her favourite hobby was gardening and she grew beautiful flowers. But most important of all, she demonstrated an unwavering faith in her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
The memorial service will be at Portage Avenue Church, 1420 Portage Avenue, on Monday, June 13 at 11:00 a.m., with viewing from 10:00 a.m. Burial will take place after the service at Elmwood Cemetery. Due to the vulnerable health of some attendees, masks will be mandatory. The service will also be live-streamed on the Portage Avenue Church website (
We want to especially thank Bethania Personal Care Home for their care of Betty, and our family as well, throughout her time there, and in particular, the nurses and aides for their loving attention to Mom in the last few days of her life. You will never know how much this all has meant to us.
If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Betty to the Alzheimers Society of Manitoba or to Portage Avenue Church – Refugee Fund

  • Sending my sincere condolences on the loss of your mom, and also quite recently, your dad. I have warm memories of the beautiful garden your parents had, your mom’s clothesline, going to Pioneer Girls with Marilyn and the friendship we had as youngsters. Your mom and dad were always such kind people. I am so sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Teresa Horobec (nee Burgess) (Childhood friend of Marilyn ) on: Sep 16, 2022
