Obituary for Bette Grimm

Peoria – Bette Grimm, 78, passed away peacefully August 21, 2020 at 3:30pm.
 
A mother to all, her own children, grandchildren, all her sisters, brother, nieces and nephews.

 She never missed birthdays, births, christenings, confirmations, communions and graduations from pre-k through college and even Bar Mitzvahs.

 Everyone loved and adored her. Her smile and laughter were infectious, always making sure everyone felt like the most important person in the room.

Bette loved life and lived every day to its fullest whether summers/falls in Peoria or winter/spring in Naples, Florida.

  She will be remembered as the best mom, wife, sister, aunt and friend.  Her grandchildren will especially remember her chocolate chip cookies and fudge!! 

Bette graduated from the Academy of our Lady High School in 1959 and received her teacher’s certificate from Western Illinois University in 1961.
  
She is survived by her husband Ollie Grimm, four children, Chuck (Rose) Bucklar, Jim (Lisa) Bucklar, Tom (Tessie) Bucklar, and Liz (Stoney) Jockisch; as well as sisters, Jayne Shapiro, Bernie Judd and brother Jim Markey.

She was preceded in death by her late husband Chuck Bucklar, parents Emmett and Annamae Markey, and sister Marilyn Cismoski.
