Helen Beatrice “Betty” Wall (nee Nephew) died peacefully, Friday, April 7, 2023, at Trillium Court Seniors’ Community, Kincardine, in her 102nd year. Beloved wife of the late Harvey Alexander Wall (2008). Dear mother of Brian (Lorrie) of Kincardine, Rosemary Yongue (Otto) of North Carolina, and John (Shirley), Sandra Wall, and Kevin (Vicki), all of Kincardine. Sadly, missed by 11 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her parents, Albert and Lily (nee Petchey) Nephew; and siblings, Lloyd, Hilda, Fred and Marion. Born and raised in Kincardine, Betty held jobs at the Circle Bar Knitting Co., Malcolm Furniture and the Knotty Pine Restaurant. She and her husband, Harvey, would eventually own and manage the Knotty Pine for 15 years. Betty loved to sew, bake, garden, and watch the Toronto Blue Jays play. She loved life, spent winters in Florida, and won ribbons at the local fall fairs, but most of all, she loved her family, sneaking in a quick hug and kiss, whenever possible. A graveside service will be held at the Kincardine Cemetery; details will be published when finalized. If so desired, donations in Betty’s memory, to Kincardine United Church or the Kincardine Agricultural Society, would be appreciated by the family. Portrait and memorial on-line at
