Mildred "Milly" Lucille Haws Weiper
8-21-1919 - 8-8-2014
In words only Mom could say, "My parts have exceeded their warranty."
After over 30 years of keeping a daily diary, she has "written" the final chapter, at least in this world.
There are so many Milly-isms that show her great humor, compassion, and love of life. "I'm in pretty good shape for the shape I am in", "oh well, could be worse", and one she always said in the mornings as she looked into the mirror "you old goat" (which wasn't true!) Her wit, humor and loving ways have bonded our large family in ways that seem truly normal to all of us, but admired by so many. With mom it wasn't about "what" she had to give, but how she gave what she had.
Milly was raised in Bedford IN by parents, Viola and Lawrence, along with her sister, Margaret and brother, Vernon, and graduated from Tunnelton High School.
Married to Roy E. Weiper (deceased) for 53 years after he spotted her sexy long legs on a city bus, they raised their children, Rex A. (Lisa) Carmel IN, Lynn Hericks of Cleves OH, Chris Harrington (Larry) of Madison IN, Kurt (deceased), Gail Romine (Rob) Carmel IN, and Joe Weiper, Carmel IN, and always welcomed others in need into their home. Grandmother to 14, and great grandmother to 13.
Mom and Dad ran a successful business, Carpets from Nora for over 25 years in both Nora and Carmel.
We wish to thank Dr. Broach and Dr. Wack, and the great staff in PCU at IU North as well as our second family at Rittenhouse Senior Living for their compassion and support, as well as Fr. Arbuckle and seminarians Kyle and Michael of OLMC, Andrew of Senior 1 Care and St. Vincent Hospice.
A lady full of love and life to the very end, we all vow to carry on your zest for life and love of God. Now we hear Dad saying "Mills, while you're up……...on your way……., "once again.
With all our love, Your Family.
