Jerome Weiler

Jerome J. Weiler, 92, Morris, died Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, at Manderley Health Care Center, Osgood.

Born May 10, 1921, in Franklin County, he was the son of Mary (Zinser) and Frank Weiler. He married Marian Zins July 25, 1946, at St. Mary's of the Rock Church, St. Mary's, and she preceded him in death Sept. 2, 2005. He was a farmer and a member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church.

Jerome didn't have a lot of hobbies. A hardworking individual, staying busy on the farm was in many ways his pastime. He did, however, love to spend time fishing and enjoyed the simple pleasure of being outdoors in the evenings sitting on the porch or in the driveway with Marian and mowing his grass. He was a fan of "The Price is Right" and "Wheel of Fortune." According to his family, "Grandma's fried chicken was a favorite of his" and a bowl of ice cream was a daily ritual for as long as they can remember. His grandchildren, though, were his true passion.

He is survived by his daughter Deb Inman, Morris; sisters Roberta Bauer, Shelbyville, and Marian Weiler, Cincinnati; brother Vincent Weiler, Sunman; three grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters Edna Weiler, Jeanette Richards, Dorothy Stegamiller and Rose Bauman; and brothers Victor, Herbert, Clifford and Donald Weiler.

Visitation is Monday, Sept. 30, from 4-7 p.m. with a rosary service at 4 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services are 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, at St. Anthony's Catholic Church, Morris, with the Rev. Frank Eckstein officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery with military honors conducted by the Batesville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3183 and Prell-Bland American Legion Post 271.

The family requests memorials to Hospice of Margaret Mary Health.
