Betty's Story

Betty Sjodin was born in Ross River and raised traditionally. After having been a resident, she chose to dedicate her life to supporting women and children fleeing abuse and became a Transition Home Worker.

Betty provided the community with a remarkable example of leadership, compassion, and strength.

Her empathetic and kind nature, as well as her courage to share her own life experience, often gave other women the strength to recognize their own resistance and resilience.
