McRAE, Elizabeth "Betty" Hope (formerly PICHÉ, née BLYTH)
By Bob McRAE, Page A32
Philanthropist, wife, mother. Born December 15, 1922, in Britannia Bay, Ontario Died July 23, in Ottawa, of leukemia, aged 83.
Betty McRAE was born (as were three sporting boys) to William and May BLYTH. She grew up in the Great Depression, in a family thankful for the monthly cheque brought home by her father, a decorated First World War veteran. To listen to Betty, she had the best childhood imaginable. Betty told stories of summer swimming at Britannia Park beach, diving off the towers at the end of the pier or watching streetcars bringing thousands to the "end of the line" and, in winter, skating on Mud Lake or across farmers' fields under glistening stars.
Betty married Earl PICHÉ while in her late teens; they had a son. Her young husband was soon off to fight in the Second World War. One day, only weeks before the end of the war, Betty learned that her husband Earl had been killed in Germany by a sniper's bullet. Just a few months earlier, her dear brother Fred had been killed fighting in Italy.
A short while later Bill McRAE (a childhood sweetheart) called and late in 1946 they were married. Together Bill and Betty had five children whom they raised (along with her first son, Earl). Betty embraced motherhood, unconditionally, from the beginning, to the end. Her children truly have difficulty remembering a day that she took off.
Family and Friends were Betty's passion. Photographs adorned every wall of her home. Until recently, Betty held family Sunday night dinners, dinners every Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and other special occasions. These were gargantuan undertakings with her children, grandchildren and often a few other invitees attending. Betty's phone was constantly busy as her children, and often grandchildren, checked in daily, if for no other reason than just to hear her voice.
She had a friendly smile or hello for anyone she passed and often would stop to talk, whether to a homeless person, a student packing groceries, a person doing some volunteer work, or someone out for a walk. Often on leaving she would give students or the less fortunate some money, along with some words of encouragement. Betty gave to more charities than you can imagine, particularly organizations devoted to the well-being and health of people. Betty was particularly devoted to the war veterans and their causes. Every year for weeks leading up to Remembrance Day, she would faithfully sell poppies then spend every November 11 watching the ceremonies on television; she preferred mourning by herself.
Betty had a genuine joie de vivre; her jovial, friendly spirit was contagious, with everyone seeking her out for some good-natured fun, conversation or dancing. She was able to lift the spirits and bring out the fun side of the most introverted.
Betty was an intelligent, beautiful, fit woman, until recently looking 20 years younger than her age. She loved politics, elections, and sports, both participating and watching them. Up until the age of 81, when her leukemia began to slow her down, Betty played tennis regularly for hours at a time and adored her walks for miles along the scenic paths of the Ottawa River Parkway.
This summer the leukemia began to seriously restrict Betty's independence. Never wanting to be any sort of a burden, Betty decided it was time. For two weeks in July she rested at home and said goodbye to family and Friends. Only hours after becoming a great-grandmother for the first time, Betty took her last breath at home, held by her husband and children.
At Betty's burial, a sunny summer day, the bagpipes played, and butterflies, representative of resurrection, flitted about as a hundred balloons were released into the beautiful blue sky.
Bob McRAE is Betty's son.
