1941 - 2018
We are extremely sad to announce the passing of Elizabeth Rose Brandics (nee Dynes) in Taber on Thursday, March 8, 2018 at the age of 76 years.
Relatives and friends were invited to meet with the family at the Vauxhall Legion, 217 - 5 Street North, Vauxhall on Saturday, March 17, 2018 between 2:00 P.M. and 4:00 P.M. A private burial was held at the Vauxhall Cemetery.
Beth was born in Moosomin, Saskatchewan on December 1,1941. She was the first of six children born to Mason and Betty Dynes. When Beth’s family moved to Taber, she met her future husband, Joe Brandics. Joe and Beth were married on June 19, 1963 in Great Falls, Montana. Joe predeceased Beth in November of 1997, she never really got over losing him so young.
In September of 1963 they welcomed their first son, Kevin (Deb) Brandics, then along came their only daughter, Deidre (George) Gillis they then welcomed Cameron (Kaye) Brandics to their growing family. In the spring of 1968, they moved to Retlaw where their family grew by two more with addition of Darren Brandics and their last child, Daniel Brandics (Barb Haynes) in 1972. With their family complete, they farmed in this area for the next thirty years and were very involved in many organizations within the Vauxhall community. Beth’s home was always open to family and friends, whether it was for a good hot meal, a heated game of cards or a social drink. She loved people and the door was always open and you felt welcome.
In 2014, Beth moved into Vauxhall which she called home until October 2017 when medical issues facilitated her move into Clearview Lodge in Taber. Beth loved to craft and was amazing at anything she decided to do. Many people were lucky enough to be the recipient’s of these talents. She was a fiercely protective mother who loved her family more than anything. She had twelve grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Her eyes would light up anytime the little ones would come to visit. She cherished time spent with family and friends.
Besides her children and their families, Beth is survived by her sisters Gloria(Keith) MacDonald, Ann Qualley; brothers Charles Dynes, Bruce (Janice) Dynes and Andrew (Kim) Dynes. She also leaves to mourn her passing, many special friends and relatives.
