Mary Elizabeth “Betty” Fraser

February 2nd, 1952 – February 4th, 2022

It is with sad hearts that we say so long to Betty who passed away peacefully at the Miramichi Regional Hospital on February 4th at the age of 70.

Betty was the daughter of the late George and Cil (Guyader) Fraser.  She is survived by one sister, Evelyn Corbett (Mike), and one brother, Johnny (Patti); as well as a number of nieces and nephews.  Betty was predeceased by her sisters: Anne Morecombe (Dave), and Geraldine Fleiger (David).

Betty lived her whole life in Miramichi (Chatham).  Family was the most important thing in her life.  She cherished every moment she spent with them.

Betty was a founding member of Miramichi Physically Disabled Association, and Miramichi Accessible Transit.  She was a staunch advocate for all people with Disabilities—she found “Ability in Disability”.  Betty was a member of many organizations:  Santa Maria, Mount St. Josephs Lady Auxiliary, Premier’s Council for Disabled Persons, a dedicated member of the Cursillo Movement, and she worked at the community kitchen at St. Mary’s Anglican Church, just to name a few.

She spent a lot of time knitting, sewing and quilting.  She excelled in all of her hobbies.  Betty put a lot of miles on her little car that she really enjoyed.  If you asked her where she was, she would answer by saying “I was around the loop for a drive”.

Betty had a special relationship with the Lord.  She attended Mass whenever she could.  When she was feeling down, she always said a prayer and then would say “things will be okay”.  She said a prayer for everybody and believed that the Lord was with her at all times.

Betty’s smile will stay with us forever and she will spread joy and happiness in heaven where she will be with her Mom and Pa, and the rest of her family and friends.

A public visitation was held at Adams Funeral Home, 140 King St., Miramichi on Friday, February 18, 2022, from 2-4 PM and 7-9 PM.  A public Mass of Christian Burial was held at St. Michael’s Basilica on Saturday, February 19, 2022, at 11 AM with The Reverend Father Dan Bastarache as Celebrant.  Music for the service was provided by Organist, David Bunnell, and Soloist, Dawn Patterson.  The hymns were:  "Here I Am Lord", "In the Garden", "All That I Am", "Gentle Woman", and "Songs of the Angels".  The recessional was "Be Not Afraid".  The Eulogy was presented by Jonathan Fraser.  Scripture readings were read by Teri-Lynn Despres, and Carrie-Anne Fleiger.  Prayers of the Faithful were presented by Leo LeBlanc.  The Honorary Pallbearers were:  Jill Reynolds, Jean Boulet, Betty-Ann McCluskey, Karen Morton, Theresa Babineau, Suzanne Thompson, and Joan Mador.  Interment will be in St. Michael’s Cemetery later in the spring.
