Elizabeth Evenden (Betty) MacGregor
Our beloved mother and friend, Betty MacGregor, passed away peacefully on January 28, 2010. She left us to be the sunlight that streams through her back porch window and the diamond glint on the snow in our little mountain community. She will also bloom in your garden this spring. Betty was born May 11, 1924, in Delhi, New York, the daughter of Daisy Canfield and Corey C. Evenden. She married Malcolm John MacGregor July 8, 1945, in Delhi, New York. He died August 22, 2008, so they are "hanging out" once again. She is survived by daughters Mona English (Chuck), Julie Houghton (David), Mary MacGregor, son Malcolm G. MacGregor (Kathy), and grandchildren Michelle Shedlarski (Eric), Susie and Corey English, and Peter MacGregor.
Her family and friends will miss Betty. Her children were lucky to have a mom who was part of their lives daily and filled them with love and laughter. Her friends in Park City — who knew her through her many community involvements which included water aerobic classes with Debra Hoyt, her Thursday MahJongg players, the garden club, the Park City Singers, the museum, and her time driving friends to appointments and social gatherings — will miss their dear friend for her kindness, generosity of time, humor, and gentleness. As news is shared of her death, we have heard your words, "I’ll miss my dear friend," as well as, "I loved your Mom."
