Lucille Rose (Kiecker) Weigand, 82, of Fort Collins, passed away January 5 from ovarian cancer.
Lucille was born November 26, 1932, on the family farm in rural Fairfax, Minnesota, to Roy and Evelyn (Berger) Kiecker. Lucille attended a one-room Lutheran school from kindergarten through 8th grade, and graduated from Fairfax High School in 1949. She worked at various banks in Redwood Falls and Fairfax; eventually moving to Minneapolis to work at Northwestern National Bank.
Lucille was married to John Weigand on May 23, 1964, in Minneapolis. After her children were born, she stayed home for several years, then re-entered the workforce in a variety of positions, retiring from Colorado State University in 1997.
Lucille loved spending time with family and friends, especially her three grandchildren. She was an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church. She enjoyed gardening and long walks, and beautifully cared for her home and garden. Lucille was kind, loving, patient and hard-working, and will be greatly missed.
Lucille is survived by daughters, Gretchen (Michael) Jorgensen and Nancy Weigand, both of Fort Collins; grandchildren, Maia Jorgensen; Anders Jorgensen and Rose Ganshert, of Fort Collins; sister Marlene (John) Nestande; sisters-in-law Vernette Kiecker and Marilyn Kiecker, of Fairfax, Minnesota.
She was preceded in death by her husband John, her parents, brothers Myron and Donald Kiecker, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Irene Ann and Frank Enns.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, January 12, at Trinity Lutheran Church (301 E. Stuart; Fort Collins). Memorial contributions may be made to Trinity Lutheran Church.
The family would like to thank Dr. Diana Medgyesy for years of compassionate care, as well as Julie and John Adrian and the staff at Lighthouse Eldercare for providing loving care to Lucille during the last months of her life.
