Elizabeth “Liz” Ann Niepert, age 78 of Maryville, IL, born August 3, 1939 in DuQuoin, IL, passed away on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at Meridian Village Care Center in Glen Carbon, IL.

Liz had four children whom she raised, nurtured and provided for. She loved her children’s spouses as her own and came to their rescue on numerous occasions. She also left hundreds of friends who were all very precious to her. After raising her kids and retiring from Granite City Steel she could be found dancing or playing cards with her “Swing Kids”. She also traveled a lot and was always on the go. Never was there a kinder or more gentle soul among us.

She is survived by a son, Jeffrey (Shelly) Niepert of Collinsville; two daughters: Linda (Scott) Guetterman of Collinsville, IL and Penny (Hugh) Cunningham of St. Jacob, IL; and a granddaughter, Danielle Niepert.
