Betty Gorcak


Born November 20, 1919 in London, England

Long time beloved member of this community passed away peacefully October 12th, 2002 in the family home of her daughter, Kim Botting.

As an infant she moved to Edinburgh, Scotland. Having grown up there and serving in World War II in the land army Betty immigrated to Canada in 1954 with her twin sister Pam. They both met and married within six weeks in Victoria, BC and soon settled in Tofino. Betty is survived by her loving family – eldest son Paul, Brian, daughter Kim and son-in-law Gordon, five special grandchildren – Nathan, Devin, Brett, Nicole and Riley (Botting). Her nieces June Sloman and Gail Hellesen. Her sister June and her daughters Kay Prosser and Jane Brown. Betty will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

God Bless you Betty. Rest in Peace.
