Remembering Betty Pickett

Betty Pickett - 2004

Remember One Of The Best - Betty Pickett

Betty Pickett was born and raised in St. Lawrence but when she moved to Marystown and married Kevin Pickett she became the heart and soul of Marystown soccer. She was at the field in good times and she was there in bad times. I remember her collecting on the gate no matter the weather. She patrolled around the field and covered more ground than most officials.
I remember being extremely hurt when we lost to Marystown in 2004 on the Laurentians 100th Anniversary and at that time I was President of the St. Lawrence Soccer Association. But when the hurting stopped I felt good for the Marystown die hard fans and it's players who had won their 1st Challenge Cup Championship. Betty Pickett was one of those people I felt happy for. She along with others deserved the taste of victory : Good for them !
Betty loved her family and enjoyed watching her boys play the game. Above all she stood her grounds but inside she was a "Gentle Woman" who loved life and the beautiful game of soccer.
 We will all miss her and we all loved her.

RIP Betty !
