Our mother, Mary Elizabeth Tamer, passed peacefully on February 23, 2017. Mary Elizabeth was born September 6, 1923, in Windber, Pennsylvania. She was preceded in death by her husband, James; parents, George and Elizabeth Solomon; brother, John Solomon; and grandson, Daniel Tamer. Mary Elizabeth was a strong, loving woman, deeply rooted in her faith and family. She attended Seton Hill College where she earned a BS in Home Economics and the University of Pittsburgh where she earned a M.S. in Library and Information Science. She spent the first and last part of her career as an educator in Johnstown and a librarian in the Chartiers Valley School District. In between she raised her five children on her own after her husband passed away. After her family, watching sports was her next love, especially Notre Dame and anything Pittsburgh. She was a prolific reader and bridge player and active n Our Lady of Grace serving in the Women's Guild and on the Parish Council. Mary Elizabeth is survived by her children, Kathy Tamer, Susan (Jim) Crawley, Greg (Jan) Tamer, Becky (Rory) Falato and Mark (Christine) Tamer; four siblings; nine grandchildren; 14 great-granchildren; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. The family would very much like to thank the staff of Advanced Personal Care and Concordia of the South Hills for their loving care.
