After their marriage, the Weilers farmed in the Town of Auburndale, where they lovingly raised their 8 children. Upon retirement, they built a home and moved to Apache Gardens in Auburndale.  After Jim’s death, she resided at Cedar Rail Senior Living and most recently at Wells.  She enjoyed playing Sheepshead and Bingo.

Even though Covid restrictions prevented her loved ones from physical contact, we knew she was in good hands at Wells.  Throughout the past year, she remained her cheerful, happy self and was always dressed in her stylish outfits.  Of course, no outfit was complete without her lipstick!  She will be sorely missed and forever loved as she rests in eternal peace.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Wells Nature View, 2807 S. Apple Avenue, Marshfield, for their kind and loving care.
