October 2, 1943 to July 21, 2022
On July 21, 2022, we said good-bye to a wife, a mother (Mom), grandmother (Oma) and great-grandma (Ur Oma). Rosaline Betke passed away peacefully with her family by her side.
We honor and remember her for her great courage to stand and face the adversities of life, the strength to fight the good fight of faith, the boldness to declare the goodness of God no matter what came her way, the joy she expressed over even the smallest of victories – to God she gave all the glory. God gave her the desire of her heart – to celebrate her 60th wedding anniversary. To see the absolute joy and happiness on her face was priceless! And then – she said good-bye and Jesus took her home. Well done good and faithful servant of the Lord – you finished the race and have now entered into the joy of the Lord that lasts for all eternity!
Left to cherish her memory and carry on her legacy are her spouse: Heinrich (Hank) Betke, her children: Rosa-Leah Ritzmann (Alfred), Karl Betke (Christina), Samuel Betke (Corinne) and Emil Betke; her grandchildren: Brian Wassing, Ashley Fehr (Daniel) and Kyle Betke (Jennifer); great-grandchildren: Matthew Wassing, Madison Wassing, Kennedy Wassing, Emma Fehr and Liam Fehr; her brothers: Ken Simon and Erwin Simon (Ann); her sisters: Violet Lemke, Gladys Lowell (Bruce), Lil Berube, Marlene Kennedy and Brenda Simon and a large extended family of nieces and nephews.
Her family expresses a deep appreciation for the care she received at the Cross Cancer Institute and in lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to the Cross Cancer Institute in her name.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday August 13, 2022 at Hope City Church located at 2225 66 St NW Edmonton AB T6K 4E6
