Helene A. Shuster Weis

October 1, 2013

Helene A. Shuster Weis, 86, of Rockford, Ill., died at 10:50 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, 2013, in her home.  
Born July 18, 1927, in St. Marys, she was the daughter of Mathew and Johanna (Stemberger) Shuster.  
She married James E. Weis Aug. 23, 1947, in St. Marys. Helene spent many wonderful years as a “homemaker” because making a home and being a mother was her finest accomplishment. As a mother, she was beautiful and vulnerable and taught her children, not on purpose, the risk of having love as your only job. She also taught them the importance of family and the richness of friends.
