CARSCADDEN, Elizabeth Joan “Betty” née Agnew


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Wife, Mom, and Grandma, Betty Carscadden, on Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 at 82 years of age.

Betty was the loving wife of Alan Carscadden for 60 years. Devoted Mother to Andy (Sharon Doyle) of Windsor, Mark (Laurie Jackson) of Georgetown, and David (Lissa Mount) of Barrie. She will be forever cherished by her grandchildren, Amanda and Keith, Cailyn and Liam, and Jack and Alexa.

Betty was the daughter of the late John Charles “Charlie” Agnew and the late Jane Scott “Jennie” Agnew (Acheson), and was predeceased by her brothers William “Bill” (Barbara) and John Agnew. Daughter-in-law of the late John Melville “Mel” Carscadden and the late Mabel Eunice Marie Carscadden (Ewing). Sister-in-law of Terry Carscadden (Sylvia), and the late Robert “Bob” Carscadden (Norma). She had treasured connections with her many aunts, uncles and cousins. She enjoyed the wonderful tradition of gathering together for birthday dinners. She will also be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews.

Betty was an exceptional kindergarten teacher with the Sault Ste. Marie Board of Education, spending many of her teaching years at Aweres Public School. She was also artistically gifted and incredibly skilled at crafts. Many examples of her work can be found proudly displayed in the homes of her loved ones, as well as at Westminster Presbyterian Church, where she spent her worship time. She was often heard singing around the house, and she added her clear soprano voice to the choir at Westminster in her later years. We will miss her sense of humour which brightened every gathering.

The family would like to acknowledge Dr. Booth and the staff at the Cancer Clinic at Sault Area Hospital, Mike and staff from ParaMed, and the staff and volunteers at ARCH for their excellent care.

Due to the current circumstances, a memorial service will be announced by the Arthur Funeral Home – Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington St East, 705-759-2522) at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations (payable by cheque or online) to Algoma Residential Community Hospice (ARCH), Sault Area Hospital Foundation, or to Westminster Presbyterian Church would be appreciated.
