Elizabeth “Liz” Widmer, age 88, of Albany, passed away on Aug. 14, 2021, at Collinwood Assisting Living in Brodhead.

She was born on Feb. 26, 1933, in Magnolia Township to Ernest and Beatrice (Setzer) McCaffrey. She married the love of her life, Conrad Widmer, on April 20, 1952.  Liz was a stay-at-home mom whose greatest love was her children and grandchildren.  Conrad and Liz enjoyed the simple pleasures in life such as driving the countryside to see the scenery, visiting their children and playing dice and cards. Liz loved a good game of aggravation, doing crossword puzzles and watching legendary shows such as “Hee Haw” and the Statler Brothers Show.

Liz is survived by two daughters and a son, Karen (Dale) Lunde of Evansville, Wisconsin, Peggy Miller of Footville, Wisconsin, and Randy (Laurie) Widmer of Freeport, Illinois; seven grandchildren, Brian Parmer, Dawn Wells, Jennifer Heisz, Derek Widmer, Justin Widmer, Brian Lunde and Lynn Miller; and seven great-grandchildren. Other survivors include two sisters, Joyce Richards and Donna Jaggi.

Liz was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Conrad; a daughter, Vickie Olson; a son, Mike Widmer; one sister; and two brothers.

Every life leaves something beautiful behind.
