On Thursday December 31, 2020, Elizabeth (Betty) Latter (nee Inglis) peacefully passed away at the BMP Hospital in Cowansville. Betty was predeceased by her loving husband, Arthur Thomas Latter, her son, John Peter, and her daughter, Gail Elizabeth, (wife of Nicholas Spillane)
Betty leaves her adoring children Jane, David (Sharon O‘Brien) and Robert (Ann Macpherson), 9 much loved grandchildren and 1 great grandson; Marc (Nikki), Michael, Scott, Sarah, Alexander, David (Sonya), Lisa, Robbie, Thomas, and Jake, to mourn her death.
Betty was born in Aberdeen Scotland on January 24, 1925 and moved to Quebec City as an infant with her parents, Peter and Jane Inglis. She attended Quebec High School and then obtained her teaching degree from McGill University. Betty married Arthur in 1945 and moved to Montreal to raise their family. They lived for many years in the Town of Mount Royal and then Dorval.
After raising 5 children, Mum went back to teaching and at the same time returned to McGill to get her reading specialist certificate and also to become a special education teacher. She was a devoted teacher having taught thousands of students over her long teaching career at St George’s High School, Montreal High School, The Yeshiva Merkaz Hatorah, St Maurice School, and at Laval Catholic High School.
Betty was an excellent bridge player and was a member of numerous bridge clubs. Many of her friends were made at the bridge table. Mum also made sure that all of her children played bridge – many of our family reunions had one, if not more, tables of bridge going.
She also enjoyed playing golf at The Royal Montreal Golf Club and was a member there since 1974. Betty was an enthusiastic golfer and was especially proud to have founded and been Grand Marshall to our Latter Invitational annual golf tournaments – a huge event in our family.
Betty was very social and, as a result, had many close friends from all areas of her life. Sadly, as the years went by, Mum lost many of her dear friends and profoundly mourned each of their passings.
Mum remained dignified and resolute up to the time of her death. The family wishes to extend our gratitude to the staff of Brome Mississquoi Perkins Hospital and Knowlton House (Excelsoins) who were so kind and considerate. We also thank Drs Marandis, Beaudin (Cowansville) and Bruemmer (Pointe Claire) who always showed much compassion and understanding to our mother. A special thanks to Patience, Susan and Temi who cared for Mum while she she lived at the Cambridge Residence in Pointe Claire.
A celebration of our mother’s life will be held in the spring in Montreal. An announcement will be made giving details of the celebration at a later date. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to The Brome Mississquoi Perkins Hospital Foundation ( www.bmpfoundation.ca ) 950 rue Principale, Cowansville, Quebec J2K 1K3
