Wickenden, Betty, Louise (nee Babin)
Heaven gained an angel and we lost ours. Betty Wickenden (nee Babin) 80 years, passed peacefully in her sleep after a lengthy battle with cancer on June 1, 2020 at HSN – Health Science North. She was predeceased by her parents, Donat and Veronica (nee McHugh). She was the second eldest of thirteen children: Oille (Alvin Byce), Bonnie (Henri Desbrois), Edna (Bruce Clouston), Alex predeceased (Suzanne), John predeceased (Sue), Shirley (Rodger Chenier), Danny (Sharon), Joe (Linda), Peggy (John McKnight), Allan (Joy), Mary Katherine (Tim Johns), and Troy (Rina).
Beloved wife of Dick Wickenden of Mindemoya, ON. They were two months shy of their 60th Anniversary. Loving and devoted mother to David (Gina) and Mary (Mike Sheridan) of Clarksburg, ON. Grandmother to Adam (Krista), Cheryl (Nathan), Julie (Ethan), Grant (Jessie), Daniel and Ian. Great-Grandmother to Bryson, Jaxson, and William. Also remembered by Donald Wickenden (Diane) and other nieces, nephew Betty had always been over-flowing with love and she shared herself to hundreds of others through her devotion to the church and her countless hours of volunteerism. Born and raised in Chapleau, she worked for Bell Telephone as an operator rising to supervisor. When a Bell linemen arrived in town, she found herself engaged within two weeks and married two years later. She was an active member of the Lady of Perpetual Help, Church of our Lady of Canada, and Sudbury Palliative Care. When she moved to Manitoulin, she started a chapter of Palliative Care on the Island. Known for her pies, she was always at the center of any fundraising event. She loved gardening and family and doted on her grandchildren. We know that Betty will continue to love us from the heavens always and will continue to do wonderful things from that vantage point. As per her request, there will be no showing. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses of both the Northern Cancer Center and the Mindemoya Hospital for their kindness.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Northern Cancer Foundation or the Warmhearts Palliative Caregivers Sudbury/Manitoulin or Manitoulin Health Centre- Mindemoya Site, in care of Ladies Auxiliary would be appreciated.

the Sudbury Park Lawn Cremation Service)

Many memories of the "good old days" on Mill Road with the Babin family, they were great neighbours and were loved by all. Betty was such a caring, smiling, loving person. We saw her last three years ago and it was as if so many years had not intervened, she brightened up the hall with her loving personality. Our deepest sympathy to Dick and the Wickenden family. At this sad time we are keeping all of the Babin family close in our thoughts. Rest in peace dear Betty.

Sincerest condolences to All of the Wickenden Family at this very difficult time. Betty certainly was one of the the most caring and loving people that one could ever know. My late Wife Joyce and I both had the privilege of working with Betty, Dick, and David at different stages of our lives and certainly have many fond Memories. May All of the Wickenden Family Cherish their many Wonderful Memories with Betty from over the years and may she now Rest In Peace.
Clayton & Family.
