October 11, 1943--June 21, 2022
Darlene Y. Weeter, age 78 of Lincoln, NE passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, at 2:30 p.m. in Bryans Hospital Lincoln, NE. Darlene was in her 79th year of life as she had already completed the 78 years and only a few months away from finishing the 79th year of life.
She was born October 11, 1943, in Martensdale, IA to Orville C. Weeter and Frances (Comer) Weeter.
Following her graduation from high school in 1961, Darlene earned her living by selling novelty items direct to consumers to make a living. Her whole life she traveled all over the United States when she was younger but did not do much traveling when she grew older.
Doing that task, Darlene saved enough money to buy her first home outside Omaha, NE and paid cash for it. Imagine, Darlene could not speak or hear anything at all. 100% deaf. Still, she worked hard selling trinkets on the street corners all over the United States to make a living.
Never asked for one penny from friends or family. At that time the Government did not consider a deaf as a disability. That changed when she turned 60.
Darlene was a tough cookie as some has described her, but she was a pussy cat. She loved her cats more than anything on the face of the Earth.
Everything except her parents and her brothers.
Whatever her brothers advised her, she would listen and then do what she wanted to do her way. Darlene had a great relationship with her close family.
She is survived by her brothers, Duane and Sara Weeter, of Jackson GA, Marvin and Nancy Weeter of Scottsdale, AZ, Darrell, and Linda Weeter of Broadview Heights, OH, Freddie and Cindy Weeter of Jackson GA and sister-in-law, Johna Weeter of Rogers, AK, 17 beautiful nieces and nephews.
Darlene was preceded in death by her parents, Orville and Frances Weeter, brothers, Leonard M. Weeter and Robert L Weeter, nephew, Michael Wayne Weeter.
Interment will be at Rose Hill Cemetery in Mount Ayr, IA. There will be grave side service at 10:00 a.m. on July 3, 2022.
Minister was Marvin Weeter. Prayer by Duane Weeter.
