Yseult Elizabeth Cameron (nee Guppy)

Yseult Elizabeth Cameron (nee Guppy, where the fish got its name) September 8, 1934 – October 19, 2018.

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of “Betty” at the age of 84. She is survived by her husband Allan of 62 years & children: Bruce, Alanna, Rob (Kim) & Jennifer of Port Alberni & grandchildren: Devon, Amber (Ben), Huai-en & Houng-Yuin & her brother Fred Thom of Tahsis & several nieces & nephews. Betty was born in Duncan; she attended boarding school in Nanaimo, with her home being in Port Alberni. She later attended Sprott Shaw College in Vancouver where she honed

her secretarial skills, then came back to Port Alberni where she met & married “a logger” named Allan Cameron. They moved to the Beaufort area & built a house on his family farm, where they raised their 4 children. Betty volunteered as a secretary for the Farmers Institute for 25 years; she was very proficient & proud of her secretarial skills which she applied to her long time career working for School District 70 until she retired at 65. Her passion & organizational skills were also a catalyst in her fight & success to maintain a piece of history when an attempt was made to rename their road from “Comox Trail” to Beaver Creek. Mom loved where she lived! Betty liked to be active & took many courses & workshops over the years. She was a talented musician & dancer with the voice of an angel, she also enjoyed graphology, quilting, floor curling, walking & had a great love for animals. Betty was thoughtful & generous, with a selfless heart. She cared deeply for her family & could be a little spitfire for the right occasion. She will be deeply missed, but never forgotten.

We would like to thank Ty Watson House for taking care of Mom, & the rest of us, also a sincere thank you to Marge Emblem for just being you.

There will be no service by request.
