Betty Pixie Lee Poznikoff

June 10, 1954 - December 28, 2014


Betty (Pixie) Lee Poznikoff (nee Ackerman), 60, of Nelson, BC passed away on December 28, 2014.
Betty was born in New Denver, BC on June 10, 1954. When she was 18 months old she was adopted
by June and the late Jack Ackerman originally of Nelson, BC.

She married on April 20, 1974 and is survived by her husband Peter Poznikoff. Betty is also survived
by her daughters Cheri, Amy, PJ, Lisa, granddaughters Felica, Hailey, Katelynn, Abigail and great grandson (finally a boy!) Jackson. Betty also leaves behind many caring brothers, sisters and relatives both biological and adopted.

Betty worked at Woolco/Walmart from 1984 to 2001. Afterwards, Betty worked with Peter at the shop.
She was everything to Peter, both on the front lines of the shop and behind the scenes at home.
She loved to bake for all her daughters, was in her glory at the cabin with family, and enjoyed taking many pictures of hose she loved. Betty loved antiquing and collecting old tins.
Betty was a big Elvis Presley fan.

The family takes solace knowing she’s up in heaven enjoying a concert with him now.
Elvis Presley once said, “I never expected to be anyone important”. Betty was humble too,
but she was everything to her family and friends.
She was so important. She gave and gave and never expected much in return. A forgiving soul.
Betty passed away of heart failure after battling lung problems. Her official diagnosis, Scleroderma,
came just recently after her biopsy before Christmas. 

A funeral service was held on January 2, 2015 at Thompson’s Funeral Home, followed by a gathering
at the Eagles Hall.

In lieu of flowers, charitable contribution can be made to the Children’s Miracle Network.

This organization was near and dear to Betty’s heart.

“I love you. Till we meet again.”
