Elizabeth Weber

January 12, 1938 — May 30, 2013

Heavenly Father has called our mother home. Elizabeth Ann “Betsy” Weber, 75, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, 30 May 2013. In her last days and hours, her children gathered from many places to be with her. Her home was filled with love and joy as we enjoyed a glorious reunion with her and each other. She then slipped quietly away from us across the heavenly veil to her family waiting on the other side. Our mom is gone from our sight for now, but we know she will be there to meet us when it will be our turn to cross that heavenly veil and to join that wonderful reunion.
Elizabeth Ann Keith was born to Maurice Wood & Vivian May (Hall) Keith on 12 Jan 1938 in Delhi, Iowa. She was the 4th of 7 children. The family lived in Delaware, Iowa until early 1950’s when Maurice moved his family to Mechanicsville to take a job as a mechanic. In 1952, William Weber and his brothers came to Mechanicsville from Western Iowa to put the new sewer system in the town. This is where Betsy and Willie met and were married on 30 July 1955. To their union, 6 children were born, “Debbie, Billy, Penny, Deanna, Teresa, and Denny”. Betsy and Willie were later divorced in 1972. Betsy moved her family in August 1976 to North Edwards California to be near her parents. Along with many other family members, she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Then in 1989, she moved to the Lancaster/Palmdale area where she resided until her death. Later in life, while living in Lancaster, she adopted 5 children, Jason, Jenna, Jordan, Jillian, and Jocelyn.
Betsy will always be remembered for her beautiful handiwork. She excelled in creating Reproduction Heirloom Dolls and Modern Dolls. She was a beautiful seamstress making all the clothing for them as well. She entered several dolls into the Los Angeles county fair. Every doll she ever entered was awarded a ribbon of at least a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. Two years in a row, she earned Best of Show with her doll entries in the mid 1990’s. She also did beautiful Brazilian embroidery and ribbon embroidery. She gave of her time to her church and community in teaching many crochet and doll making classes.
Survivors include her children: Deb Vanter of Marion, Iowa; William (Vickie) Weber of Harrisburg, Oregon; Penny (Steve) Lackey of South Jordan, Utah; Deanna (Jaime) Martinez of Rosamond, California; Teresa Weber of Lancaster, California; Dennis Weber of Glendale, Arizona; and Jason, Jenna, Jordan, Jillian, Jocelyn of Lancaster, California.
