DICK, Elizabeth Mary “Betty”
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Elizabeth Mary Dick (née Kelly), better known as “Betty”, on March 13, 2020 at the age of 88. A mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, she leaves to mourn her children Greg (Ingrid), Gail (Don), Kelly, Sherri (Kelly), Jad, Kim and Kerri (Dave); 14 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren; her sister Sheila and many nieces and nephews. Cliff, the love of her life and husband for over 5 decades, predeceased her on December 21, 2019… they are together again.
Hailing from the farming community in Lloydminster, Alberta, Betty moved to Kelowna in 1966 with Cliff and made an enormous impact on the local community. She fostered many deep friendships, most that lasted her lifetime and others new and still so meaningful. Her quick wit and love of games and cards, especially bridge, partnered well with her talent for hosting fabulous gatherings! She was well known for her exquisite cooking and baking and loved to be in her garden welcoming the birds. She always had time for others, family, friends, and beyond… volunteering for numerous causes and finding ways to help.
Her deep and selfless love for her children and grandchildren was always evident and went beyond their circle to include so many. Like a pebble dropped in water, her caring ways will have infinite impact. We will miss her full and caring heart. Heaven welcomes an angel! See you on the other side Bet.
Family would like to thank Betty’s friends for their support. Special thanks to the compassionate staff at Hospice House, to Chartwell Chatsworth for their care and support, and to Dr. L. Pavan. There will be no service by request; a celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers and keeping in spirit with Betty’s charitable and generous personality, please donate in her memory to the Canadian Cancer Society, www.cancer.ca, or the charity of your choice.
