Obituary

 

Dorothy Ann Weber was born December 8, 1933 in Ellis County to John and Regina Augustine (Schuster).  She peacefully left this world on Sunday, November 7, 2021 at age 87.  

She joined Leonard “Red” Weber in marriage on April 30, 1951.  Together they raised six children, two girls and four boys.  Throughout the ensuing years, while she occasionally held various jobs outside the home, her constant commitment was to her family and close friends. She loved to make sure town folk made it to the places they needed to go by giving them a lift in her van—frequently stopping at the donut shop to grab a sweet treat on the way.  She was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Ellis, Daughters of Isabella and Veterans of Foreign War Auxiliary.

Card and dice games were staples at the Weber household. Grandkids learned to count by dealing cards, melding and keeping score. Dorothy always loved a friendly, or better yet competitive, game of pinochle, durock or dice. She always seemed to have endless energy, often staying busy while playing games by keeping everyone’s snack bowls topped off with her amazing homemade party mix and Grandpa’s favorite peanut M&M’s.

Five of her children, Donna Schoenthaler (Doug), Ellis; Patti Unrein (Joe), Hays; Jerry Weber (Joan), Kansas City; Ed Weber (Charlene), Ellis; Curtis Weber (Mary Kay), Ellis; and one daughter-in-law, Elaine Weber, Wakeeney continue to cherish her memory. There are 16 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren to carry on her love of family and traditions.  Betty Younger (Richard) Hays is Dorothy’s sole surviving sibling.

Dorothy and Leonard shared 64 years of marriage, until his passing May 27, 2015.  Her parents, son William (Bill) Weber, granddaughter Erin Weber and great-grandsons, Peyton Weber and Jonah Schmidtberger preceded her to Heaven.  Also there to welcome her are five sisters, Mary Grecian (Don), Theresa Scheck (Andy), infant sister Rosie and nine brothers, Philip (Clara), Joe, Eddie (Alberta), Paul (Stella), Matthew (Verna), Johnny (Delores) Clarence (Maddy), William (Rosie) and an infant brother Francis.
