I met Betty Tamblyn a few days after meeting her daughter Pat (my wife) at London Teacher's College in 1970. I instantly liked her red hair and welcoming nature. Over the years I learned she was the constant anchor in the Tamblyn household, the glue that held things together. In the 46 years she was my mother-in-law and grand-mother to my sons, I heard only kind, supportive and encouraging words from her lips.
Betty will surely be in my family's collective memory always.
