It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Roger and Betty Boss.  Roger and Betty Boss passed away only moments apart, laying side by side in the Halifax Infirmary, on Thursday, June 2, 2022.

Roger was born in Amherst, a son of Theresa (Burke) Boss and the late Derrald Boss.  Betty was born in Amherst, NS, a daughter of the late Robert and Clara Margaret (Dale) McKillop.

They both loved the radio, either Ham or CB; Betty always did the Sunday Night Check-In (Eco Charlie).  Roger worked for many years at Sifto/Domtar Salt Company.  He enjoyed time on computers, and loved the outdoors, always maintaining his property, or spending time in the woods, hunting and fishing.  Betty was a housewife.  She loved quilting, crafts, prepping family dinners, making pickles, baking and cooking.  Like Roger, she loved the outdoors and could often be found out gardening when the weather was fit.

Roger and Betty are survived by their children Lisa, Fenwick, Craig, Fenwick, and Larry, Amherst; grandchildren Parker, Trystan and Ahrianna.  In addition to his mother, Theresa of Amherst, Roger was also survived by sister Anne Boss, Amherst.  Betty was also survived by brothers David (Sharon), Amherst, Robert (Debbie), Boundary Creek, NB, Bruce (Shirley), Grand Prairie, AB, Douglas (Anne), Amherst, Kenneth (Tanya), St. Thomas, ON  and Ronald (Joanne), Amherst; sisters Audrey Taylor, Amherst, Joyce (David) Carter, Brookdale, NS.

They were predeceased by their brother in law Richard Taylor.

Arrangements are under the care and supervision of Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church Street, Amherst (902-667-8777) where an Afternoon of Remembrance will be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 from 2 until 4 pm, followed immediately at 4 pm by a Graveside Service in the Fenwick Cemetery.
