Obituary for Elizabeth Sylvia Chomniak (Kuby)

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Elizabeth (Betty) Chomniak, age 89, on Thursday, March 4, 2021. Born and raised in Ethelbert, Manitoba, she was the daughter of Nick and Dora Kuby. She attended business college in Dauphin, Manitoba and then joined the Bank of Montreal, where she enjoyed a long career. She moved to Port Arthur (now Thunder Bay), upon her marriage to Nick Chomniak in 1953. After retirement, Betty and Nick became two of the original tenants of the Millenium Home. Betty enjoyed gardening and travel, and dog Freckles, and was an active volunteer with MEMO, the Thunder Bay and Current River Food Banks, and the Our Lady of Loretto Roman Catholic Church and Catholic Women’s League. She maintained her independence right to the end. She was to have celebrated her 90th birthday on June 7. Betty will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Karen Chomniak (Paul Gamsby) of Peterborough, Ontario and his family; brother Victor (Liz) Kuby, Ethelbert, Manitoba; brother-in-law Oles (Jackie) Chomniak, Thunder Bay; sister-in-law Doris Blahut, Mississauga, Ontario; and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Nick, parents, sister Mary (Vern), brothers Mike (Helen), and John (Dorothy), and in-laws Walter, Jennie, and Morris. Due to current restrictions, a celebration of Betty’s life will take place at a later date or to coincide with what would have been her 90th birthday. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to MEMO, Thunder Bay Food Bank, Current River Food Bank, or Our Lady of Loretto Roman Catholic Church. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Sargent and Son Funeral Home. Online condolences may be made at

Dear Karen, we were very sad to learn of your Mother's sudden and tragic death... how very difficult for everyone. I felt privileged to meet your Mom when she would visit you in Peterborough. We were always excited about her arrival, for we knew it was to be a bake fest, and that we'd be the beneficiaries of many of her delicious cookies. Please take care and know that we are thinking of you and Paul, as well as other family members we don't know.

Dear Karen: I am so sorry to hear of Betty's passing. We had so much fun over the years at the old Bank of Montreal. She was one of a kind and her sense of humor always made me laugh. We had so much fun at our Friday night happy hours after the bank closed. I bet they don't do that any more. She has joined her old pal Anita and of course your dad. Thinking of you at this sad time.

Our sincerest sympathies are with you during this difficult time. Your Mother was a wonderful woman, having worked with her on our H.C. Golden Agers Bus Trip to Winnipeg, she was full of strength and goodness. Please accept our condolences to the family as she will be sorely missed. George Rusnick.

Karen and family....we were so saddened to hear of Betty's untimely passing. Those of us who worked with her at the Bank of Montreal loved her sense of humor and her sharp wit. Betty was one of a kind. How fortunate we were to have known her. May you find peace in knowing that so many share your sorrow. And may warm and loving memories of your Mom bring you comfort at this very difficult time. Petra Kapush, Dale Smith & Lesly Kapush
Hopefully, we will see you on June 7th.
