With her husband Ted by her side, it is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Betty-Lou Stam (nee Stanton). She passed away peacefully during the early afternoon on March 23, 2021 at the Brantford General Hospital in her 72nd year, just days short of her birthday. Predeceased by her parents Alice Frances and Albert Victor Stanton, sister, Edith Fraser (Stanton) and brother, Edward Victor Stanton as well as brothers-in-law John Stam and Robert Dunham. Betty is survived by her husband Jacob Theodorus (Ted) Stam who were in their 45th year of marriage, sisters-in-law Martha (Stam) Dunham (Robert – deceased) and Ria (Stam) Heeringa (Jerry) and brother-in-law Eric (Arie) Stam. She will be truly missed by her nephews, nieces and cousins in Canada, the U.S.A and in Holland. Betty loved her parents dearly as well as her brother and sister. She is now reunited with them in Heaven. She had a great love for all of her fur babies over the years of marriage. They were a true blessing in her life. Betty began her working career at KeepRite Inc. in the financial (accounting) department and was employed there for more than 20 years. She made many friends during that time and met Ted there. Ted happened to work in the Engineering department. Upon leaving the company, one of Betty’s wonderful passions was that of gardening. Roses were the name of the game as she nurtured more than 40 rose plants. When patients from St. Joseph’s hospital walked or wheelchaired by, a rose would be offered to them. Another passion was her love for clothes. Everything would have to match and be properly accessorized. Betty was well known at various ladies shops in the city. Our vacation times were mainly spent in the Southampton area of Ontario. We were fortunate to be able to rent a beautiful cottage close to the beach. Our time there would be either at the beach, day trips in the area, looking in clothing shops and enjoying all of the different food establishments. No cooking was being done during that time period. We loved the Southampton sunsets. The last 13 months have been a difficult time for the family as Betty was hospitalized at the Brantford General Hospital with a breathing disorder. She was on the CCU floor during that time. The care that she received by the medical staff: nurses, doctors, respiratory technicians, physio technicians and many others was truly outstanding. We were very blessed to have been associated with these outstanding professionals. These are our true Angels. A sincere thank you to each one of you. God bless you all for your support. Friends will be received at the Toll Funeral Home at 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford, Ontario on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 from 6pm to 8pm. Registration is necessary prior to attendance. Please register on the funeral home website by clicking the RSVP button located under “Service Details” on Betty-Lou’s page. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, attendance at the funeral service is private. However, the service will be live streamed on Wednesday, March 31, 2021 beginning at 11am. To view the service, click the “Photos and Videos” tab above this obituary and then scroll down and click the arrow next to “Watch Webcast”. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Brantford SPCA or the Brant Community Healthcare System (BCHS) Foundation in Betty-Lou’s memory. Messages of condolence may be left at
In God’s infinite wisdom at the appointed time, John went home. God bless you, sweetheart.

Uncle Ted, It was just a lovely service. It was so special that you incorporated all of the meaningful music. My love and prayers to you as you move along this difficult path. Love jenn

Ted Stam Posted at 10:20am

Hi Jen: Thanks so much for those kind and loving words. The service had to be special because Betty was that special woman and wife and much more. She is no longer suffering and in pain. Betty fought the good fight as she was so strong. God took her when His timing was right. Thank you for your love, prayers and thoughtfulness, Jen. Love you too, sweetheart.

Ted, we send you our condolences on the passing of your wonderful wife and life partner! Betty was such a wonderful person who complimented you so well. I know you have many fond memories that will be your solace over the next days, months and years to come, to comfort you. She is at peace and comfort now, after a long battle. Jill and I send our love to you and to let you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. May God be your crutch over the next days and beyond!
Jill and Dave Smallwood.

Ted Stam Posted at 10:37am

Hi Jill and Dave: Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers on Betty's passing. Yes, she definitely is a wonderful wife and my partner. Betty was the best side of me which would be the perfect match. It has been a very quiet and sad time these last few weeks but I do know that she is in a much better place up in Heaven looking down and guiding me through my life left on earth. There is no need for Betty to continue this battle as she is now free from any pain and suffering. Thanks again for your comments. God bless the both of you. God loves you and so do I.

Dear Ted and Family,
My sincere condolences. So sad for your loss.
Betty and I had some wonderful adventures and good times sightseeing and shopping for unusual clothes and jewelry.
Stay strong Ted. Betty will be missed.
Love Linda Hounslow

Ted Stam Posted at 12:50am

Thank you so much, Linda. Your comments are very much appreciated. Betty so enjoyed getting out with her friends be it shopping or eating out. The key was being with friends and having a great time. I'm sure that they were wonderful memories that will never be forgotten. It was nice chatting with you on Monday. Be safe.
