Beryl Allick “went into the arms of her Lord” on Dec. 19, 2017, at the Brendan House in Kalispell.

Beryl was born in 1921 in Havre to Jay and Amy Rakestraw. She joined brothers Cliff, Glen and Clarence, and sisters Gladys, Hazel, Wanda and Thelma. In 1935, she and her family moved from Havre to Bigfork, where she graduated high school in 1940. Later that year she met and married Wallace Buck and they had two daughters, Sharon and Vivian. When Wallace fought in World War II, Beryl and her daughters moved to Bremerton, Washington, until the end of the war.

The family then moved to Creston, where Wallace worked in a print shop and Beryl worked on a farm. Later on they moved to Kalispell, where Wallace worked for McElroy and Wilkens. Wallace died in 1974.

In 1979, Beryl met Sammy Allick while dancing at the Eagles Club. They married in January 1980 and were together until her death. Sammy worked at Grosswiler’s dairy farm for 38 years and four years for Kalispell Parks and Recreation. During this time, Beryl and Sammy lived on Grosswiler’s farm until 1994, when they moved to Spruce Park Camp-ground in Kalispell. Beryl and Sammy moved to Brendan House in November of this year.

Beryl loved the Lord and loved serving Him. She also loved fishing, dancing, playing the piano, singing, bingo and playing cards, especially pinochle (a force to be reckoned with). Beryl dearly cherished the times she was able to hold the great- and great-great-grandbabies. The other joy for Beryl was a visit from K.D. and Zach for her timely dose of dog therapy.

Beryl is survived by her husband, Sammy; her daughters, Sharon (Arthur) Anderson and Vivian (Frank) Williams; and five stepchildren, Roger, Merlyn and Steven Allick, Doreen Marquez and Karen Pelton. Beryl was blessed with 15 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 14 great-great-grandchildren.

Beryl was cremated, and a celebration of life will be at a later date. Johnson-Gloschat Funeral Home is caring for the family.
