  • Notes 
    • Long time choir member, Betty Ryeland retires By Richard Baker About forty years ago, Peter and Betty Ryeland moved from Sault Saint Marie with their four children to take up residence in Aurora. Shortly thereafter, Betty joined the choir at Trinity and brought her considerable musical talents and love of Anglican liturgy to enrich the music programme, which was then under the direction of Ruth Harris. Both then and for many years thereafter, she was the choir's soprano soloist and would from time to time perform a solo recital. It was also the start of an enduring friendship with musicians Illtyd and Ruth Harris, and Betty always enjoyed visiting the beautiful "English Country Garden" at the Harris house on Mark Street and spending time in the summer with them at their cottage in Parry Sound. After Ruth retired in 1972, Betty continued in the choir with subsequent directors Greg Paskaruk, Richard Baker and Tony Browning, always making a substantial contribution to the musical life at Trinity. It was a very difficult decision that she made to retire from the choir due to mobility problems, and she misses being part of the Adult Choir immensely. Our music programme has that effect on people! The parish offers her our heartfelt thanks for all that she contributed and continues to contribute to the life of Trinity.

      Went to live with her parents with her two sons while her husband went to Canada to find work before going over to join him.
