Elizabeth Jane Remberg

April 7, 1933 — May 12, 2023


Elizabeth J. Remberg (Betty), passed away peacefully on May 12, 2023, at the age of 90, at Sunrise Health Services, in Hospice, in Milwaukee, WI.

She was born in Milwaukee, WI. She was a graduate of Bay View High School. She was a very outgoing and loving person, who always put others before herself.

Preceded in death by her parents, William and Selma Grunke. Dear mother to Susan (Thomas) Treiber. Beloved grandmother to Kelly (Tyler) Pileggi. Loving Sister to Dorothy, Evelyn, Roland, Virginia, Gloria, James (her twin brother), and Melvin. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She worked at the Oilgear Company for over 30 years as a secretary and loved her job. During those years she also volunteered at Special Olympics and worked with the children on different events like bowling. She got an award for Volunteer of the year from Special Olympics. She also raised money for the organization and got to go down a big slide into a pool of Jello and her picture was in the newspaper the next day. She enjoyed working with children a lot.

After she retired from Oilgear, she worked at Zablocki Grade School in Milwaukee, in the after-school program helping with the children until they were picked up.

She also volunteered at St. Luke’s Medical Center for many years in the Ambulatory Department. She would talk to people in the waiting rooms, waiting for their loved ones to come out of surgeries. She would also take patients to different parts of the Hospital. She loved jokes and would always tell some of her favorite jokes to make people smile and she would hand out candy to everyone.

She took trips with her girlfriends that she knew since grade school and high school. They all stayed together through their entire life. They went to dinners, which changed to lunches as they grew older, which she enjoyed organizing.

She loved her granddaughter, Kelly, very much and talked about her all the time. She always said she was so happy and blessed to have such a wonderful granddaughter. They would get together and go out for lunches and drives and sometimes she would go over to Kelly’s house.

She also loved her daughter, Susan, very much, too, and always said having her was one of the best things that ever happened to her. She loved going over to her daughter’s house and playing Scrabble and Poker (which she did every Sunday for the last 5 years) and she loved sitting in the backyard, it was so relaxing. She loved robins and had a collection of them.

She enjoyed golfing and bowling. She bowled in many bowling leagues through her life and even bowled on TV and won her first colored TV and took first place.

She was a very independent person and would love taking drives around Wisconsin on nice days. She also liked going down to Bender Park and watching the waves roll in, which she found very relaxing.

She enjoyed her vodka martini. She loved baking cookies. She would give cookies to different organizations, and her family and friends. She loved to sew. She would make little baskets and give them to nursing homes and other organizations.

She will be missed a lot. Susan and Kelly were both very close to her. She lived a great life and we are so very proud of all of her accomplishments.

She is now a very special “angel” in Heaven where she will have no more pain. She will be watching over us and keeping us safe. She can now be together again with her entire family and friends that have passed on and dance as much as she wants to her favorite big band music, Neil Diamond and Engelbert Humperdinck songs.

Small Private Service will be held at Highland Memorial Park Cemetery at the grave site.
