Eulogy for Betty
Friends & Family,
This week has been a dark one when we were shocked by the news that Betty has gone to be with the Lord.
We were privileged to know Betty as a close friend, a strict and compassionate boss and a very helpful & friendly person. She belonged to the pioneer generation when Mobil first started the refinery in Singapore in late 60’s. During her time with Mobil refinery, Betty was well-known as the facility boss of Refinery Administration Building (also known as the RAB). The facilities worked like a clock work as she
treated the RAB as her own home. She was demanding but fair and always took good care of her staff. She was very efficient and she commanded respect & trust from those who interacted with her. Not only was Betty dedicated at work, she was also active in sports such as taekwondo, badminton and others. Her beauty had charmed many, and she was once crowned “Miss Mobil Pegasus Night” in the 70’s. Betty was an astute investor and she migrated to Vancouver to spend her early retirement there to enjoy the four seasons as the weather in Singapore was too hot for her. For more than 2 decades after she retired in Vancouver, Betty continued to keep in touch with her friends and willingly shared advice to her junior ex-colleagues.
Betty has a warm personality, was eloquent, talented and presented herself elegantly with her unique flair. She was ever ready to offer her assistance to friends. She would without hesitation agree to Emcee wedding ceremony which she conducted in English and Mandarin effortlessly.
She leaves a big hole in our hearts. Her values, compassion, and friendship will stay with us and live on in us for a long, long time.
Farewell, and rest in peace, Betty.
