Elizabeth Giometta Obituary
ELIZABETH 'BOOTS' WITT GIOMETTA, 89 SALT LAKE CITY, UT - "Boots" Giometta, 89, Salt Lake City, UT, died Saturday, February 22, 2014, surrounded by her family. She was born March 8, 1924, in Decatur, Illinois, the oldest of five daughters to Wilbert Elmer and Catarina (Maranto) Witt. She moved to Rockford, Illinois as a child and graduated from West High School. She spent her life in Rockford. She married Anthony Joseph Giometta in December of 1945, and their son, James Anthony, was born January 21, 1947. Boots loved staying busy. Most of all, she loved taking care of her family. She doted on her son and grandchildren, frequently taking them for Swedish pancakes on Saturday mornings and making her only culinary specialty, spaghetti and meatballs, for them every Sunday night. She also had a passion for golfing and would play every morning of the summer at Sandy Hollow Golf Course. Boots also enjoyed playing bridge and played in clubs and tournaments as a Life Master. After her husband's death, she also revived her passion for dancing and spent many hours dancing with her friend and partner, Lee Wolf. In 2011, she moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, to be closer to her expanding family. We will miss her greatly but are happy for her reunion with her husband and son who both preceded her in death, as well as her parents and 3 sisters. Survived by her sister, Viola Jean Rinaldo Emerson; daughter-in-law, Mary (Sauberlich) Giometta; four grandchildren, Laura (Nathan) Cleveland, Jason, Julianna and Rachel (Jacob) Brooks; and multiple nieces and nephews. She also had four great-grandchildren she loved to play with, Maximilian and Dexter Brooks and Jack and Olivia Cleveland. No services scheduled. Arrangements are under the direction of Advantage Funeral Home. Interment in Sunset Memorial Gardens, Machesney Park.
