It is with great sadness that the family of Maude Elizabeth “Betty” Prince announce her death, which occurred on Friday, September 2, 2022, at the Saint John Regional Hospital, Saint John, NB. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, on July 25, 1927, she was a daughter of the late Harry and Mabel (Carson) Hendricks.
Betty is survived by her adoring children: Glendon (Gail) Prince of Fredericton, NB, Eleanor Prince of Hampton, NB, and Doug Prince of Pincher Creek, AB; grandchildren: Ed (Kimberly), Krista, Crystal (Troy), Natalie, and Patricia; great-grandchildren: Nicholas (Marissa), Brooke, Bridget, Thomas, Courtney, and Rosie; along with several extended family members.
In addition to her parents, Betty was predeceased in 2016 by her loving husband of 69 years, Fred Prince; sisters: Ruth (Gordon) Brewer and Elsie (James) White; and her brother-in-law Donald (Patricia) Prince.
In her younger days Betty was continuously taking pictures, especially of the flowers and gardens that she loved so dearly. She looked forward to her annual trip to St. Martins to watch the tides roll in and out and have a bowl of her favorite fish chowder. You’d often find Betty sitting in her sun porch, watching the boats on the river, looking at the deer, or spending some quiet time observing the nature that surrounded her. She was loved, and will be missed by many.
