Obituary of Betty Saik
Please share a memory of Betty to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
SAIK, Elisabeth (Betty) March 5, 1929 – January 7, 2023 On January 7, 2023, our family lost Elizabeth ‘Betty’ Saik (nee Kavich), known by all as Baba. She was someone we all felt would be around forever, and by all accounts, she was, going strong well into her 94th year. Betty lived her entire life near and in Innisfree, Alberta - raising their 4 children on the farm with Mike, then retiring to their home at the top of the hill. That home became the centre of family gatherings, from summer suppers on the porch with vegetables from her garden to Christmases spent playing poker with Gido, while enjoying the endless feasts magically cranked out of her tiny kitchen. Everyone was always welcome to join, and no one left hungry, with the inevitable weighty bag of goodies handed to you on your way out. We will all remember her standing on the step giving you a big smile and wave as you left. As big as her family was (one of 11 siblings), her circle of friends was just as large, keeping a busy social life of bingo or a coffee date. Her four children hold years of memories with her - Garry (Cathy), Marlene, James (Peggie) and David (Jenny), grandchildren Jeff, Jessica, Benjamin and Annie, and great grandchild Otto. Betty is predeceased by her husband Michael George Saik and is survived by siblings Janet Vervynck (Percy) and Mike Kavich (Elizabeth). A celebration of life and interment will be held later this year, when family can gather. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Betty’s memory to the Canadian Red Cross (Ukrainian Humanitarian Crisis Appeal).
