Betty Heaton (neé Williams) had lived in her O'Connor home from the early fifties.
We owe a great debt of gratitude to the pioneers of whom Betty was one. They established the parish and built the parish hall (now used by the kindergarten). The women worked tirelessly to pay off the parish debt. They raised their families here and supported schools and activities such as scouts and guides as well as the church. Betty was the wife of Joseph and mother of Dennis, Chrystine and Gary. Her funeral was at St Philip's on Friday 31st March 2017. Thank you Betty, we farewell you with sorrow and with gratitude.
