Biography of Betty Bateson
Betty Bateson was raised in Huron County near
Lake Huron, the middle of three girls born
to Stan and Alice Horsburgh. Betty met and
married her soul mate and they were blessed
with two children. Their son died suddenly
at age eleven devastating the family.
Betty's older sister lost her battle to
cancer and three years later her husband
died suddenly from a heart attack.
These losses weighed heavily on Betty.
Finding poetry has helped with the
healing and hopefully will help others
who have suffered losses too.
