  12. Although we only met ‘Grandma’ on a couple of occasions, she will be remembered as a lovely lady.
    So easy to chat to and with a smile on her face, she was thrilled that summers day when all her great grandchildren managed to get together at the same time… mean feat apparently!

    RIP ‘Grandma’

  14. I have fond memories of Auntie Betty, of the times when with uncle Gwilym they used to take me out when they came to Weymouth. Auntie Betty always made us very welcome the few times that we were able to visit them in Parkstone. It was always lovely when I was able to speak to her on the phone. Auntie Betty will be missed by all.
    Rest in Peace with uncle Gwilym. X

  15. My early memories of Betty was as a schoolboy, playing monopoly with Dave in their downstairs lounge, she would raid her shop (dad did not approve) to give us sweets and bottles of pop, we of course took great advantage of this -)))
    Spending time on the Hopkins family boat at Weymouth, fishing and generally larking around.
    Many happy memories of my teenage years.
    When I think of Betty I always think of the most gentle and kind hearted lady. She will be sadly missed by her family and all those who had the privileged of knowing her.
    RIP Betty
    Much love from Paul And Sylvia.

  17. My dear Betty, I was so sorry to hear of your passing. We first met in the 1950’s, having spent a couple of holidays in Tytherleigh and have kept in touch ever since. You were always so lovely and a real Mum to Brent and David. I cherish the memory of visiting you and Gwilym a number of years ago with my Mum, whilst we were on holiday in Bournemouth. All your family are very much in my thoughts. I will sit quietly at 11am on 7th. January 2021 and remember you Betty. XX

  20. Goodbye for now my darling Mum. Lots or tears today, I will cherish forever the wonderful times I had with you and Dad. Happiness will gradually return knowing you are at peace and together again with Dad for eternity. God Bless from your eldest son. XX

  21. Dearest Betty, thank you for all the lovely memories that I have of my time spent during the summer holidays with Angela, Gwilym and yourself. You were always so kind and welcomed me in the family with such warmth. You really were the sweetest couple and I can just picture you both now sat side by side on your comfy chairs. Rest in peace.

  22. Betty was my big fun loving sister who was always there for me. Although there was nearly 10 years between us she never minded me hanging around, even when she was courting! Gwilym (Betty’s boyfriend who later became her husband) used to let me ride on the carrier of his push bike and we would all go off into the countryside with a picnic and homemade lemonade.
    Times were very different when we were growing up with our dear sister Rita, who sadly died in her fifties. She never had good health as a result of whooping cough as a baby.
    We were blessed with wonderful parents and had a lovely family home and were happy with the simple things in life.
    One of the highlights of our younger days was Betty and Gwilym’s wedding during the Second World War in 1944. Things were very different then with ration books and coupons for furniture and petrol, for essential use only, but like today’s Pandemic you had to get on with living and trust things will get better in the future.
    God Bless you dearest Bet and may you Rest in Peace with your Gwil and all those you have loved. Until we meet again, lots of love from Freda. XXXXX

  23. We first met Betty in 1978 whilst visiting Weymouth, with her warm smile and cheerful greeting this was the start of a wonderful friendship. Betty was the perfect host, fixing drinks,snacks and meals no matter what time of day or night, she was also a great diplomat and delivered everything with a twinkle in her eye, a very smart lady and will be sadly missed. When ever we visit Poole and Weymouth we will always remember the happy times spent in her and Gwils company.

    God bless xx

    David,Bridget and family
