Lucille Helen Weiler, 94, of Fort Madison, IA, passed away on Thursday, January 09, 2020 at 3:55 AM at Sunnybrook Assisted Living.
She was born on February 10, 1925 near Primrose, IA to John and Elizabeth Trump Wagner. She grew up the fourth oldest in a family of nine children. Lucille graduated from Donnellson High School in 1943. After graduating she moved to San Antonio, TX and began work as a typist. Later that year she returned to Ft. Madison and began working at Sheaffer Pen Co. Lucille retired from the Gleason Corporation after many years of employment.
On June 21, Lucille married William Weiler. Together they raised four children. Lucille was very special to so many people. She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She provided them with a lifetime full of fond memories. While maintaining a loving environment, Lucille worked tirelessly raising her family. Ask anyone that knew her and they will tell you that she had a unique knack and joy for pulling weeds, cleaning and doing laundry. Lucille had a feisty and outgoing spirit that left a footprint on the hearts of many she met. She was one of those people that made you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger and live just a little bit better. She will be sorely missed by her family and loved ones and also her special family at Sunnybrook where she resided for almost ten years. Her husband, William can finally rest in peace since his love has joined him.
