Obituary for Betty Ulmer (Speary)

Betty  Ulmer (Speary)
Betty Margaret Ulmer passed away on Tuesday, December 5, 2017, in Melville, SK, at the age of 89 years.

Betty was born November 28, 1928, to Alec and Beatrice Speary in North Battleford, SK. She moved to Fenwood to live with her grandmother in 1934. Betty attended and completed her grade 12 at the Fenwood school. She then moved to Melville but spent a great deal of time with her grandmother in Fenwood.

In 1950 Betty met Ed Ulmer in Fenwood, and they got married in 1952. They lived on the family farm until 1955 when the family farm house burned down; they then moved into the town of Fenwood. There they raised five children and as a family continued farming until their retirement in 2000; in 2004 they moved into Melville.

Betty had many hobbies; among her favourites were knitting, crocheting, quilting and playing bingo. She loved spending her evenings with her friends and family playing cards and beating her sons-in-law at cribbage. Betty served as the mayor of Fenwood for 17 years (1987-2004). She also served as president and secretary of many boards.

Some of Betty’s happiest times were following and watching her grandchildren in their activities; from dance and swimming to skating, hockey and golf, she was there to cheer them on.

Betty was predeceased by her husband, Ed; son Daniel and grandson Dean; two brothers, Jim and Earl; and two sisters, Heather and Dorothy. She leaves to cherish her memory: her children, Cathy (Ed) Burgess, Judy Ulmer (Jim), June (Dale) Matichuk, Sally Ulmer (Wayne) and Glenn (Robyn) Ulmer; her grandchildren and great-grandchildren: Tenille (Erick) and children, Ellie, Abigayle and Parker; Nicalla (Dave) and children, Kinsley and Zoey; Laine and daughter, Fanta; Rikki (Ron) and daughter, Zyenna; Tanner (Meig) and children, Tatum and Axel; Mitchell; Nevada; brothers Frank (Lyola) Speary and their son Peter, and Fred Speary; as well as many relatives and friends.
