It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Betty Elizabeth Leckie on Friday, November 12, 2021 at the Southeast Integrated Long Term Care Centre in Moosomin, SK. Betty was born on October 22, 1931 at Fleming, SK. to William and Beulah Saxton. She met and married Vernon Harry of Manson, MB. in 1950. Vern’s untimely death in 1957 left Betty to raise their three small children on her own. Betty remained and made a life in Manson until she moved to Elkhorn in 1971, then to Virden in 1973. Betty met and married Jim Leckie in 1987 and moved to Lloydminster, where she resided until mid September of this year when she moved to Moosomin to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren.
Betty is survived by her husband, Jim Leckie of Lloydminster, AB; daughter, Gaye Tough of Saskatoon (and her children Wiley, Galen, Breyan and their families); daughter, Connie Hay of Virden (husband, Bud and their children Leslee, Tyler, Brodie, Terrin, Calan and their families); daughter-in-law, Marrilynne Harry of Lloydminster (son John, and his wife Dianne, and Zoe); step-daughter, Penny Leckie of High River; step-son, Kerry Leckie of Lloydminster (wife Janelle and children Kelsey, Aaron, Cooper and Asher); sister, Joyce Logel of Saskatoon; sisters-in-law, Mary Jane Salmon of Calgary and Joyce Smith of North Bay; numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her first husband, Vernon Harry; infant twin boys; son, Ryan Lee Harry; her parents and in-laws; brothers, Cyril and Teddy; great-grandson, Aaron Elijah Hay.
A private family service will be held. The interment will follow at the Manson Cemetery.
