To members of the Weisz family,
My name is Dee Reeves Olson and for twenty or so years my family was neighbors of Dan and Louise Weisz and became close friends. I worked for Dan and Louise during the summer when I was home from college serving soft serve cones, hotdogs and milkshakes. I remember Louise, Dan, and Judy, and Vonda teaching me the in and outs of the business and a work ethic that stays with me today. My family was blessed to have their family as friends and my sister, Jeannie still keeps in touch with Judy all these years. Louise and my mom, Dorothy Reeves kept in contact until she passed in 2002--they remained friends since the 1950's; such a blessing. Louise was such a kind and hard working lady. "Well done, my good and faithful servant, sayeth the Lord." We are all richer because of her life here on earth. Rest well, dear Louise! Go with God!

My fondest memories of Mrs. Weisz are associated with drinking coffee early in the morning at the Hazel Manor. She was always trying to cook breakfast for myself, Jim Beatrice or other customers. She made a person visiting there home town feel very welcome. My thoughts and prayers go out to all her family.
My family had the great fortune to be best friends with the Weisz family for over 50 years. Louise and my mother were as close as sisters. They would talk for hours at the kitchen table, in the living room, or finally, over the phone. Louise was special to everyone who met her because she would make you feel that way. She was extremely kind, generous,and helpful. She was hard working, honest, and sharing. Louise was a wonderful mother, a warm and loving friend, a gracious lady. She is a great role model for all generations that follow her. She will be greatly missed.
When I remember Louise Weisz so many memories come to mind, good memories. When I walked my dogs at a young age, I would never hesitate to stop in Ewing Park and ask for a cup of water for my pet, due to the heat, well my dog wasn't the only one to get a refreshing drink, Louise would make sure I got one too. My Family delivered the Ledger on North Side for 11 years and yes, again, it would be Louise that would make us come in to warm up a moment or give us a cool glass of water in the summer time, my children remember her fondly. A extremely hard working women, such a great example for the generation to follow, no frills, just do everything the best you are able to do it, 100% Yes, as with my own Mom, I will remmber Louise fondly and her acts of unseen kindness were never forgotten. The Bible verse that reminds me of your missed loved one is: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith" What more can be said of a person?

Great Grandma Weisz,
It has been a while since I have seen you, how time flys. I remember coming to your house and always having 4 course meals 3-4 times a day :-) I wish that we could have spent more time together but I treasure the many times that we had. Thank you for always being there to talk and listen. You will sure be missed by myself, your friends, and many many family members. I am attaching a picture of my boys Jaedyn (5), Kamryn (4), and Mason (1).
I have many memories, and feel greatful for my most recent trip in the fall with my brother chip. We got a chance to take grandma to see grandpas gravesight one last time, not to mentioned we enjoyed a nice breakfast at a restaurant that morning. It was very special to us. With much love and admiration. Andrea Carlin
