Betty was born in Muskoka. She is predeceased by her parents Alvin and Amelia Leeder.  She was a businesswoman in Bracebridge and owned businesses on the main street. She operated a Clothing Store and a Meat Market with her husband Merv (predeceased). Betty loved to travel with family, do puzzles, and tinker in her garden.  She was a very giving and kind woman who gave much to her family and her community.
