Elizabeth “Beth” Meyerholt (Colberg) Wagner, age 80, of Red Lodge, Montana, formerly of Bay City, Michigan, went home to our Lord on Thursday, July 5, 2018.

She was a graduate of Bay City High School in 1956 and received her associate’s degree in medical records from Saginaw Junior College, Saginaw, Michigan. Beth enjoyed her work in admitting at Bay City Medical Center where she retired after many years of service.

Beth was always active in community service from Girl Scout leader to president of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTA), and organizer of the school Family Fun Fair for many years.

Beth's talents were many; she was an accomplished interior designer, roller and ice skater, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, community volunteer and friend who loved to entertain. She enjoyed camping with her family and traveling the backroads throughout Michigan.

She was preceded in death by her parents, William “Bill” (1967) and Elizabeth Meyerholt (2011); brother, William H. Meyerholt (2004); first husband, Curtis Carl Colberg (1994); and second husband, Floyd E. Wagner, Jr. (2015).

She is survived by her daughter, Kaaren Sue (Colberg) Robbins (Mark); sons, Curt William Colberg (Sherri) and Garth Edward Colberg; grandsons, James Everett William Dean (fiancee Stephanie) and Joshua Joseph Colberg; granddaughter, Shaniah Elizabeth Colberg; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

A reception in Beth’s honor was held with family and friends.

The family would like to express our thanks for the wonderful help and care given by many at Cedarwood Healthcare in Red Lodge.

If desired, friends may make memorial contributions to the Shiners’ Hospitals for Children, 2900 Rocky Point Drive, Tampa, Florida, 33607 ( the organization dear to her father’s heart.
