Blaine Elizabeth Eggers, of Emmett, Idaho, passed away November 8, 2020 at St. Luke’s Boise Hospital after struggling with Type 1 diabetes and Addison’s diseases. Blaine, 20 years old, was born on April 12, 2000 to Doug and Whitney Eggers at St Luke's downtown Boise hospital.
Blaine’s vivacious smile lit up a room, her twinkling blue eyes, bronze toned skin, and blonde hair combined with her magnetic personality and contagious laughter made it difficult to not love her. Her spark, wit, and unconditional love for all people she met made her dear to our hearts.
Blaine was not only beautiful on the outside, but she had a beautiful spirit from within. She was an Emmett High School graduate. She played volleyball and was on the dance team. Outside of school, Blaine was passionate about dance, riding horses, and photography. She enjoyed all styles of dance including tap, jazz, hip hop, and ballet. Blaine was selected to perform in the Nutcracker Ballet at the Ann Morrison Center. She enjoyed horseback riding. Blaine competed riding multiple horses in the English style of horseback riding called “eventing” which included dressage, show jumping, and cross country. She rode horses she trained herself including a mustang. Because Blaine was involved in multiple activities, she had a natural eye for photography. She was good at taking action photos and capturing “the moment”. Blaine also enjoyed taking pictures of “still life” particularly flowers and bees. Among her many nicknames were pumpkin, punkerdoodle, pea, and more often BEE which stood for Blaine Elizabeth Eggers. With all these attributes, Blaine was surprisingly humble.
Blaine was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother, Mary Eggers. She is survived by her mother, Whitney Eggers, father, Doug Eggers, brother Race Eggers as well as nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and her soulmate Logan Summers.
