Betty Doreen Barrack

19.06.1928 - 14.06.2020

Betty sadly passed away on 14th June 2020, aged 91 years. Sadly missed by all her family and friends, but is now reunited with her beloved husband Ken.

The family thought the following poem would be fitting for Betty:-

Numbers Up
Betty loved going to bingo and seeing all her chums
She’d listen out for numbers, hoping they would be the ones

A line, a house would pass her by the frustration could make a grown man cry!

But she was patient and not het up, eyes looking down, ears pricked like a pup
She’d calmly wait to hear the call, the call that says this is the ball

BINGO!! A shout, it’s her time, she finally got to complete that line!
She was a devoted daughter and loving wife, she had a ball and enjoyed her life
It’s just that when she heard the call, the call had her number on the ball.

Adapted from a poem by Rebecca Spilsbury

Mo & Dave Spencer


We have known Betty (& Ken) for 20 years. Our friendship grew after Dave done some work for them when they first moved to Newick. Ken had been poorly with heart problems and unable to drive at the time so they felt quite isolated and after about a year they moved to Willingdon, Eastbourne. While they were there we spent many happy times together , either going out for meals or visiting each other’s homes on the days Betty wasn’t at bingo. After they moved to Mill Farm, Pagham, we continued to phone and visit and after Betty lost her dear Ken, she would spend a few days staying with us each year until it got too much for her. Thankfully she had many lovely friends at Mill Farm, who have been so kind in keeping an eye on her and taking care of her when needed.
We always enjoyed our visits to Betty and our meals at the pub or fish & chip lunches. She was always beautifully dressed, had a cheeky smile, enjoyed a laugh, and had plenty of tales to tell us. There was never a dull moment when we visited.
Rest in Peace Betty, together again with Ken and your mum Elsie.

Today we bid farewell to dearest Betty. She really was one in a million. You will be missed my darling angel. Go fly with ken. Gone but will never forget you xx
Our fondest memories of Betty is her singing and dancing at intervals in bingo, and her stories of her and ken. She used to say what she liked to Adrian, and sometimes quite saucy too. She would chat away to people during breaks while playing party bingo, and randomly press her button, blow me she would win without covering a single number.
