In thanksgiving for her life, we are sad to pass on that Betty Bresee died this morning peacefully in her sleep.

Betty was wife of Rev. Glen Bresee - Rector of St. Augustines in the 60s and 70s.

Since their time in Edmonton, Betty and Glenn had lived for a long time in Ontario and a memorial will be held for her there in due time following cremation.

We invite your prayers for Peter and Paul, their sons, the wider Bresee family, and all who grieve.


Betty was a Book of Common Prayer gal - we might use these words in thanksgiving for her life:

O LORD Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who hast opened unto us the gate of everlasting life, and art the peace and light of those who rest in thee: In company with thy holy Apostles, Prophets, and Martyrs, and with all the faithful departed, we praise and glorify thee for the fulness of joy which thou givest to all who put their trust in thee; who with the Father and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest, one God, world without end. Amen.

Rest eternal grant unto her O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon her.
