In memory of
Betty P. Stevenson
Betty Stevenson passed away peacefully at home in Marysville, WA, on January 7, 2017. She was born on January 16, 1944, in Trinidad to Patrick and Muriel (Ayoung) Cornwallis. Betty spent her early years in Trinidad before immigrating to New York City, NY, with her parents and four siblings. In her early twenties, Betty went to nursing school and worked in the hospital nursery with newborn babies, whom she dearly loved. Next she spent a few years being a nanny for the rich and famous of New York. Wanting a change of pace, she moved to Bellingham, WA, and became a caregiver for the elderly. It was in this capacity that she met her husband, Robert Stevenson, as she was caring for his elderly parents. Betty and Robert were married on September 27, 2003. She was a terrific wife and a very loving and generous person in spite of having to fight a fifteen-year battle with cancer that finally took her life. She was predeceased by her parents. She is survived by her husband, Robert Stevenson; Robert's three children: Tracey (Brian) Watson and their sons, Tyler, Sam and Josh, Rob (Heather) Stevenson and their sons, Riley, Randy and Rorey, and Krista (Steve) Bunkowske; siblings Gordon, Angela, Frank and Margaret, and many loving relatives and friends. A Service of Remembrance will be held at Westford Funeral Home on Friday, January 13, 2017, at 11 a.m. Reception following. Committal will follow at Bayview Cemetery.
