Catherine (Betty) Elizabeth Cyr was born on Sept. 16, 1942, in High River, Alta., and passed away peacefully at home in Pincher Creek, Alta., on May 8, 2024, at the age of 81.

She was predeceased by her parents, Joan and Urban Bricker.

Betty will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 62 years, Rodney (Rod); children Bernice (Brett Wuth) Cyr, Rhonda (Bruce Kachowski) Casson, and Russell (Jo-Anne) Cyr. She was blessed with eight grandchildren: Charmayne (Riley) Barrett, Dominic (Kendall Clarke) Cyr, Stephanie Anderson, Thomas Anderson, Brandon (Nicole Reser) Cyr, Shania (Lane Crawford) Casson, Greggory Anderson, and Samantha (Dillon Pond) Cyr; as well as two great-grandchildren, Jake Reser and Everly Cyr.

Betty is also survived by sister Karen (Allan) Hurl, brother Barry (Patricia) Bricker, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Betty married Rod in High River on Oct. 14, 1961, and moved to the Cyr Dairy Farm, south of Pincher Creek, where they resided until 2010 when they moved to their current home.

Betty was very involved in her community, belonging to various groups including CWL, the Canadian Sheep and Wool Commission, Lethbridge Exhibition Board, and the Farm Women’s Network. She also served as a member of the University of Lethbridge senate representing Pincher Creek and area.

Over the years, Betty travelled southern Alberta in the summers judging various baking, canning and sewing events at community fairs.

Betty had a passion for gardening, herbology, cooking and sewing. She has shared her wealth of knowledge over the years with her family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that people plant something special in their own gardens in memory of Betty.

A funeral mass for Betty will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at St. Michael’s Church in Pincher Creek.

Arrangements entrusted to Eden’s Funeral Home.

The family of the late Mrs. Catherine “Betty” Cyr would like to express their most sincere gratitude to all those who sent cards, flowers and condolences.

Your support made all the difference during a very difficult time.
