Helen Elizabeth (Bette) Leach passed away peacefully on February 17, 2013 at the age of 85 years, after a long battle with lung disease. Bette was predeceased by her parents Alfred and Undine Hill, sister Diane Schneider and brothers-in-law Bernie Schneider and Wally Hennie. Bette is survived by her husband of 65 years Vern, her children Wendy Leach, Regina, Dean Leach (Eileen Packet), White Bear Lake, Dawne (Len) Gunderson, Drayton Valley, Alta.; six granddaughters Breanne (Tino), Megan, Danika, Calene (Justin), Dena (Andrew) and Erin, great-grandson Kayden, step-granddaughters Jacelyn and Julianne. Also survived by her siblings Joanne Hennie, Jack (Margaret) Hill, Ken (Ev) Hill and Sharon (Aden) Hubick, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Bette was raised in Yellow Grass and farmed near Colfax with Vern until they moved to Weyburn in 1980. She was very active in sports and music, and the community, golf, curling and bridge were her passions, but her greatest passion was for her husband and her family. Many times she would say she's had a good life. In the autumn of her years when her disease slowed her down, Vern cared for her every minute of every day. Bette will be greatly missed, but is now in a place of comfort and peace. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Shwe, the Sun Country Health Region and the nursing staff at the Weyburn General Hospital for their care and attention. A celebration of Bette's life will be held on Friday, February 22, 2013 at Grace United Church, Weyburn at 2:00 pm. A private interment will take place at the Hillcrest Cemetery, Weyburn immediately after the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Lung Association of Saskatchewan, 1231-8th St. E.
