Mary Ann Weindel

Dec 04, 1940 - Feb 23, 2024

location-icon

Peoria, IL

Mary Ann Weindel (Burling), the only child of Cecil O. and Viola L. (Becker) Burling, was born on December 4, 1940 at OSF St. Francis Hospital in Peoria, IL. Growing up on Park Avenue in Pekin surrounded by a large extended family and many friends filled her days with idyllic childhood play and lots of laughter. Ice skating on the Pekin Park Lagoon, roller-skating down Court Street (one fateful trip garnering her a broken arm), and neighborhood games and mischief were interspersed with attendance at Douglas Grade School. Mary Ann’s dad, Cecil, died on May 27, 1953, when she was only twelve. Her high school years were filled with studies and activities including National Honor Society and lifeguarding at the Pekin Park Pool; she graduated from Pekin Community High School on June 2, 1958. Mary Ann met Frank R. Weindel in 1958 while she was a first semester nursing student at Methodist School of Nursing. When a fainting episode in her first Emergency Room round ended her pursuit of an RN degree, she began working at Keystone Steel & Wire as a secretary. She and Frank wed on December 20, 1959, and she became an Army wife for two years. Mary Ann and Frank celebrated 64 years of marriage this past December; Frank survives the love of his life. Mary Ann’s mom, Viola, died on January 30, 2008, and her stepdad (from October 7, 1972), Carl Schlottman, died on June 27, 1987. Mary Ann’s children and grandchildren were always surrounded and blessed by her loving care: daughter and “son”, Susan & David Woodruff, daughter, S. Ann Fuelberth; grandchildren, Katherine (Woodruff) & Dan Dalpiaz, Zachary Fuelberth, Joseph Woodruff, and August & Jordan Fuelberth, all mourn her passing and will miss their Mom and Gram more than words can convey. Mary Ann is also survived by two sisters-in-law, Linda (Weindel) (& Darrell) Vierling and Sandra (Weindel) Morgan; two aunts, Sharon Becker and Addie Burling; five nieces, five nephews, many cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews, and dear friends. Mary Ann’s in-laws, Roscoe & Doris Weindel, one sister in law, Shirley (Weindel) Knuppel, eight uncles, six aunts, and several cousins preceded her in death. Mary Ann embraced and relished full-time motherhood, and she and Frank created a warm, welcoming, and love-filled home where countless large and small family holidays were celebrated, where friends gathered and Frank’s band practiced, and where Sue’s and Ann’s friends were always made to feel like part of the family. She was a meticulous housekeeper, a gracious hostess, an awesome family vacation and adventure planner, an amazing ‘room mother’, a gifted pianist and organist (giving private piano lessons in her home for several years), a great fisherman—often catching more and larger fish than Frank, a supportive country-music-band wife, an excellent seamstress, cross-stitcher, and quilter, and a card-maker extraordinaire. Anyone who received one of her hand-made cards received an exquisite small artwork. When Sue entered fifth grade and Ann entered first grade, Mary Ann tackled the role of a very non-traditional college student; she enrolled at ICC for three semesters, earned straight A’s, and received a full two-year scholarship to Bradley University. She graduated summa cum laude in December of 1973, with a B.A. in Education. An enthusiastic, imaginative, and clever teacher, she taught at the ‘old’ Jefferson School, the ‘new’ Jefferson School, and C.B. Smith School, retiring from Pekin Public Schools District 108 in 1994 after 20 years of teaching. In addition to imparting the excitement of reading and math to her second graders, Mary Ann also expanded her students’ horizons by having her mother, Vi, come in to teach the kids to dip candles, make homemade applesauce, and string popcorn and cranberries. After retirement, Mary Ann and Frank built a new home and enjoyed many wonderful travels and adventures: Alaska, Panama Canal, Hawaiian Islands, and Rhine River cruises, and African photo safari, trip to Ireland, driving trips to Canada and throughout the United States, and January get-aways to Fort Meyers Beach, FL with Aunt Sharon. Book club and lunch dates (with her ‘Smithy’ friends) were always highlighted days. At the very TOP of her list, though, were her grandchildren whom she and Frank lovingly spoiled with board game days, Canasta tournaments (she always suspected the grandsons were somehow giving signals), sleepovers, camping/fishing trips, boat rides, cookie decorating, ice cream shop stops, puzzling Christmas gifts, and all sorts of other fun and some mischief (their parents still do not have all the information on these escapades). All of these innumerable, joyful blessings were gifts from God, and Mary Ann’s rock-solid faith and her devotion to her church were of the utmost importance to her. She was baptized on January 26, 1941 and was confirmed in the Lutheran faith on May 24, 1953, both at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Pekin. She taught Sunday school and Vacation Bible School when her daughters, and then her grandchildren, were young. She gladly played the piano whenever asked, and was a part-time organist at St. John’s—Pekin. When the family transferred to St. John’s Lutheran Church—Sand Prairie in 2012, she became one of the organists, playing until 2022. She loved serving the Lord with her Epiphany Society sisters-in-Christ, volunteering at Good Shepherd Lutheran School (even subbing there when her grandchildren were little), and working on the GSLS Auction Committee. She was a longtime volunteer at Ewe's Treasures in Pekin. It was a very rare Sunday, Advent or Lenten service that did not find her worshipping at church. The faithful example that she lived and modeled for her children and grandchildren is a lifelong, priceless gift. This shared faith binds all who survive Mary Ann, and will sustain them in the days ahead. Mary Ann, age 83, was called to her heavenly home in the early evening of February 23, 2024, with her family at her side. After valiantly fighting cancer for almost two years, she died in Hospice care at Carle Health Methodist Hospital in Peoria. Her family is so grateful for the compassionate and excellent care that she received from the entire Crescent 8 staff since February 4. Her funeral will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, February 28, 2024 at St. John’s (Sand Prairie) Lutheran Church in rural Green Valley. Pastor Chris Sansom and DCE William Krueger will officiate. Visitation will be 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory in Pekin and from 10 to 10:45 a.m. Wednesday at the church. Burial will be at Glendale Memorial Gardens in Pekin. Memorial contributions may be made to Good Shepherd Lutheran School, 3201 Court Street, Pekin, IL 61554 or St. John’s (Sand Prairie) Lutheran Church, 13443 Townline Road, Green Valley, IL 61534.
