Obituary of Eileen Kay Weber
WEBER – EILEEN KAY It is with great sadness we announce that at the age of 69, Eileen Kay Weber went to be with The Lord on Saturday, October the 7th 2023 after a battle with cancer.
Eileen was born on February 11th, 1954 the 5th of 8 children to Paul and Annie Furman of Ernfold, Saskatchewan.
She followed in her older sibling’s footsteps and left home as a teen to work. She moved to Swift Current and waitressed at the bus depot where she met her future husband, Cliff Weber. They both accepted Jesus as their Savior and soon after were married on November 24th, 1973.
Eileen’s greatest desire was to be a mom and in 1976 they welcomed their daughter Janet followed by their son Jamie in 1977. She loved children and chose to be a stay-at-home mom.
Once the children started school, she drove school bus which allowed her the same time off as them.
In 1989 Cliff and Eileen opened their own business called Lone Star Electrical which they ran and then sold 14 years later. Throughout the years she had a variety of other jobs including hostessing at TNT restaurant being a Weight Watchers leader for 11 years, a circuit coach at a lady’s gym for 11 years and she spent 3 years at the gift shop at the Cypress Regional Hospital.
Eileen spent many happy hours volunteering in the community and with different ministries. Some of her favorites were the kid’s club program and women’s ministries at The Church of the Open Bible as well as helping to organize the provincial ladies’ retreats. She was a great cook and enjoyed using those skills to help cook at Cypress Bible Camp and head up a crew making meals at the soup kitchen. She also served on the board for Mckerracher Support Services. Eileen loved any opportunity to meet new people and she became a friend to all.
In 2008 Eileen became a grandma for the first time and was blessed with 4 grandsons in total. She loved them to pieces and spent as much time as she could making memories with them. They loved going to the park and shopping at the dollar store with her. They loved it so much they even re-named it Gramma-Rama.
