In 1974 Belle and Herb moved to Duncan on Vancouver Island where they were involved with the Legion and Senior Center for many years.
Belle was predeceased by Herb, her loving husband of 68 years and five siblings.
She leaves to mourn her passing her daughters Heather (Art) Rendell and Ann (Jack) Thomson, six grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren and one great-great grandson, her sister Margaret in Inverness and several nieces and nephews in Scotland, Canada and the US.
