Betty’s inspirational life is a gift to us all in Charles Fleming Retirement Village.

The Wellington region honoured our dear Betty with a “Local heroes” award on Monday 24th of November. The special medal was in recognition of Betty’s sound and selfless service to the community during her life.

Betty’s life story has been documented in a film where her meticulous contribution to Wainuomata (Hutt Valley), particularly as a member of very many different committees, can be appreciated.

Betty, as so many great politicians, is a vigorous and passionate speaker. At the hospital, she constantly captures our gaze and attention with grace and vitality in every conversation.

Betty, congratulations! You are such an inspiration!
