Elizabeth (Betty) Galitzine


Passed away October 12,

2012, age 95 at Sun Pointe

Village in Kelowna. Born

Elizabeth Ingham on February

5, 1917 in Brandon, Manitoba. Moved to Vancouver where she met her beloved Theo Galitzine, and married in 1951. Betty and Theo lived most of their life

in Vancouver and moved to

Kelowna in 2001. They were

great ball room dancers, had many competitions, and taught dancing. They danced many years well into their 90’s at Kelowna Water Street Seniors and Dinner/Dances. They were well known for their lively jiving steps and the “dip”. They travelled the world together and made many voyages on cruise ships. She was always such a pleasure to be around, being very polite and

apologized when she was ill for the trouble she thought

she was causing. We will miss her smile and positive

attitude but we know she missed Theo the past 5 years and longed to be with him again. Now she is. Betty is survived by her son, Richard (Ardeth). Grand-children Dennis

Morrison (Erin)of Vancouver; David Galitzine, (Amanda)

of Grande Prairie, AB; Step-Grand-children Sherrie Lutz (Byron); Robert Kwasnicki (Jennifer); Great-Grandchildren Tessa, Trinity, Nicole, Sydney, Aurora, Owen. She was

predeceased by her grand-daughter Gloria Galitzine (2001) and her beloved husband Theo (2007). Also predeceased by her siblings, Walter, Eleanor & George Ingham.
