The Big Creek Ladies’ Lunch, held at the community hall on March 13, was special this month, honouring Beth Suter who is leaving the community soon.
Beth and her husband, Mac, moved to Big Creek in 1990 after purchasing Ray and Mary Thomson’s property on Duck Lake.
They had fallen in love with the country earlier while on a Teepee Heart trail ride with Duane and Marion Witte.
Mac was devoted to his adopted land. He wouldn’t even return to Switzerland for a visit.
“If they want to see me they can come here.” Mac stated.
Sadly Mac suffered a fatal heart attack in March of this year.
Left alone, Beth is returning to Europe where she will live close to her daughter who now lives in France, but not far from where she and Mac lived in Switzerland before immigrating to Canada.
Their immaculate Duck Lake place has already been sold.
Very best wishes from Big Creek go along with Beth as she takes her journey home.
