Looking to the future. Planning ahead.
The Canadian Wildlife Federation recently received a $100,000 Legacy Gift from the estate of the late of Betty Nixon.
By all accounts, the late Betty Lorraine Nixon lived a quiet but satisfying life. Born in London, Ontario, and raised in Thunder Bay, she moved with her parents Dorothy and Charles to Windsor, Ontario, where she lived the remainder of her life. She worked as a mortgage specialist with a national bank, was active in her church and the wider community, and especially enjoyed music. Betty was an accomplished pianist and sang in choirs for years. She enjoyed golf and she excelled at bridge.
When she died at age 89 in September 2019, she left her estate to eight charities, including the Canadian Wildlife Federation. Her parents had long supported the conservation of Canada’s wildlife, and so her gift was a tribute to them as well. Betty’s many friends knew of her kind and generous nature and to them her gift was no surprise.
