Elizabeth M. “Betty” Bisek, 85

Elizabeth M. “Betty” Bisek, died on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 at Mayo Clinic Health System New Prague.  Betty was born on June 2, 1932 in Wheatland Township, Rice County, to George T. and Mayme B. (Tupy) Sevcik.  She  attended elementary school in Lonsdale and graduated from Montgomery High School.  Betty married Henry R. Bisek on October 18, 1952 at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in New Prague.  The couple made their home in New Prague, where they raised four children.  Betty worked for many years at McMahon Snyder Drug.  She was a lifetime member of the VFW Auxiliary and American Legion Auxiliary.  She was also a member of the Scott County Extension Service, and Catholic Workman.  She delivered Meals on Wheels and volunteered for the St. Wenceslaus festival baking group, baking kolacky and strudel, and helped with other committees.  She enjoyed sewing, embroidery, and crocheting, but had a special affinity for making rag rugs, an interest that she turned into a business out of her home.  Always proud of her Czech heritage, Betty aspired to perfection in creating Czech dishes, canning, and baking kolacky, apple dumplings, strudel, and other pastries.  An avid gardener, she was known for her flower gardens.  She enjoyed dancing in her younger years and loved reading and playing cards with family and friends.

She is also survived by a sister, Angie Topka of Minneapolis and a brother-in-law, John Bisek, Sr. of New Prague.  She is preceded in death by her husband, Henry on July 21, 2015; 2 infant twin sons; son-in-law, Ronald Opp; parents; and sister, Gene Kratochvil.
