Elizabeth Ilene Elbert Remer, 89, of Arco, Idaho, passed away peacefully Saturday, July 6, 2013, at Parkwood Meadows Assisted Living Community in Idaho Falls. She was under the care of her family and Hands of Hope Home Health and Hospice.
She was born February 15, 1924 in Winnet, Montana, to Henry Joseph Franklin Elbert and Eva Fleury Elbert. She attended and graduated from high school in Oilmont, Montana. She later received a certificate from a business college in Spokane, Washington.
She married Clarence E. Remer in Bozeman, Montana on August 19, 1944. They were married 56 years before his passing on December 1, 2000. Together they had a son, Brad Joseph.
Elizabeth (Liz or Betty as she was known) loved to work from the time she was young. Her first job was working in her parents' grocery store. She was employed as a caller for the Montana railroad. She worked and retired as a Department of Agriculture bean inspector in Twin Falls, Idaho.
Liz had a love for dogs. She also enjoyed macramé, ceramics, reading, music, decorating cookies and making candy for Christmas. She was known for her pina colada cake, taffy and goulash. Liz was a people person and loved hosting parties.
Dancing was a big part of Liz's life. For over 20 years, she was an active member of the Top Hat Tappers in Twin Falls. She was also a member of the Magic Valley Dilettantes, playing roles in the productions of "Annie," "Hello Dolly," "Dust to Diamonds" and many more. She loved dressing in the fancy costumes, and there was never enough "bling" in her life!
She is survived by her daughter-in-law, Pam Remer, of Arco; three grandchildren, Shelly (Alan) Shaffer, of Moore, Shane (Shelle) Remer, of Shelley and Brandy (John) Waymire, of Arco; 11 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Lester "Slug" Elbert; husband, Clarence E. Remer; son, Brad Joseph Remer; and one great-grandchild.
Per Liz's request, no services will be held. Cremation arrangements are under the care of Anderson Family Funeral Home in Arco.
The family would like to thank the staff at Parkwood Meadows Assisted Living Community and Hands of Hope Home Health and Hospice for their loving care.
