SARATOGA SPRINGS — V. Beth Liebich, 58, of Saratoga Springs, recently of Stillwater and previously of Clifton Park, passed away on Thursday, April 24 at her home.

Beth was born in DeKalb, Illinois on July 17, 1955 as the third child of Virginia VanSenus and Hugh A. Earley. She spent her first seven years in DeKalb, before moving to Chazy with her parents and brother, Michael, in 1962. The family subsequently lived in Glens Falls and then settled in Saratoga Springs.

Beth married and had a son, Adam, in 1979, who has always been the brightest light in her life. In 1992, she married Richard C. Liebich of Clifton Park, and together they spent the next 20 years involved deeply in philanthropic undertakings, particularly focused on education and medical foundations.

Beth was actively involved in the palliative care field.  She was past Chairman of the Clifton Park Republican Committee, an active member of the Saratoga County Planning Commission, and she participated in various local civic committees.

Her special interests have been her family and their dogs: Parker, Ranger, Willie and Nellie. 

She was a voracious reader who loved to golf with her sister-in-law Susan, go to the theatre and films, and to have lunches with Susan and their girlfriends.  She also loved to ski in the winter.

Beth had a keen intelligence and sharp wit. She was a most generous, selfless, compassionate person who would go to any length to give assistance to anyone she could with a gentle assurance, a loving affirmation or a listening and attentive ear.

Beth was preceded in death by her parents, Hugh and Virginia Earley, her grandparents and her beloved husband, Richard. She is survived by her adored son, Adam Scavone (Tiffany), her sister, Kathy Earley (Vickie Mayo) and her brother, Michael Earley (Susan).

Left also to mourn her absence are her niece, Cindy Sroka (Bruce); and nephews, David Budinger (Ann), Erik Earley (Julia) and Brian Earley (Alicia). She’s also survived by her brother-in-law Donald Liebich (Marcia) and sister-in-law Betsy Alte (Chuck), numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.  She will be especially missed by her very close friends, Dottie Lapis and Elaine Kelly.

Services to celebrate Beth’s life will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 1 at the William J. Burke & Sons/Bussing & Cunniff Funeral Homes at 628 North Broadway in Saratoga Springs. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at www.lls.org.
