June Kathlyn Weber passed away peacefully surrounded by family on June 27, 2019, in Georgetown, Texas.
June is survived by her husband of 69 years, Cornelius I. Weber. June and “Cornie” lived a long and happy life together. They had six children, three of which preceded her in death: Ann Mori; James Weber; and John Weber; and three of which survived her: Eric Weber and wife, Dana Whitledge, of Atlanta; Robert Weber and wife, Karen, of Glendale, Ohio; and Mary Meyer and husband, Steve, of Georgetown, Texas. She is also survived by her son-in-law, Kenji Mori of Tokyo; her brother, James Carroll of Cedar Falls; 17 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and dearly loved in-laws, nieces and nephews.
Born June 24, 1928, in Frederika, to Claude E. and Amelia A. Carroll; she was the youngest of 10 children. She graduated high school with honors and went on to earn her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Wartburg College in Waverly, where she met her husband, Cornelius. They married on November 23, 1949, in Frederika, and moved to Ames. June worked as a chemist until Cornie graduated with his Ph.D. in 1960, after which they moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin. In 1963, the family moved to Cincinnati, where they lived for 55 years. Once there, June spent her time creating a wonderful home for her husband and children. She was an avid reader, an incredible baker, an accomplished seamstress, a generous hostess, and had an amazing ability to create beauty in the day to day details of life. In her later years, she spent time traveling the world with her husband. She also shared many hours of fun with her grandchildren playing cards and Scrabble, and passing on to them her many talents. Although June centered her life within her home, one accomplishment of which she was particularly proud was co-founding a food pantry and clothing shop in an underserved area of Cincinnati, which is still open.
June will be remembered most for her devotion to and love for her husband, Cornelius; her love for and service to her family; her generosity to all around her; her wonderful sense of humor; her sharp mind; and her loyal friendship. She often said of herself that she believed that you could have a lot of fun, and still follow the rules. We say of her, “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies…” We will be forever thankful for her life and love.
