Bertha Elizabeth Wimmer Page

03/04/1944 - 05/11/2012

Page, Betty Elizabeth Wimmer passed away peacefully Friday, May 11, 2012, at her home in Gilbert, Arizona, after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born to Opal Irene and William Boswell Roberts on March 4, 1944, in Washington D.C. Betty graduated from Theodore Roosevelt High School in D.C. and later from Brigham Young University, where she majored in Early Childhood Education. Betty met and married Loran I. Wimmer while attending BYU. They had five beautiful children. She is survived by her husband, Gregory A. Page, children Renae L. Campbell (Brett), Shelli D. Stanley (Matthew), Jeffrey L. Wimmer (Sarah), Ryan A. Wimmer, and Carrie A. Ballantyne (Thad), and twelve cherished grandchildren, who are Terran, Brookelyn, Madison, Brayden, and Jordyn Campbell; Mason Stanley; Gavin, Bryson, Austin and Colton Wimmer; Jaylee and Drextyn Ballantyne. She is also survived by her three siblings, William H. Roberts, James B. Roberts, and Eileen V. Reitz. Betty loved and was devoted to her family. She enjoyed spending time at grandchildren’s games and events, vacationing with family at the beach, taking long walks in the sand, family gatherings, painting, always sacrificing to better the lives of those she knew. Her caring spirit was displayed by her kind words of encouragement and constant support of her family. Those privileged to know Betty were inspired by her strong faith and testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ. Elder Russell M. Nelson has said, “The only way to take the sorrow out of death is to take love out of life.” There assuredly is sorrow but because of the love she amassed throughout her life, she leaves us with countless memories of joy, laughter, and the knowledge that she indeed lived a treasured life she fashioned with a loving family. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, May 17, at 10 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 777 E. Elliot Rd., Gilbert, AZ 85234, with a viewing preceding the services at 9 a.m.
