Lillie Weichert, 1914-2006
News has reached us of the death of Michael's mother, Lillie Weichert. A two year cancer survivor, it was discovered three weeks ago that she had experienced a recurrence. The neoplasm metastasised to the lymph nodes surrounding her esophagus, causing labored swallowing. She was rushed to the hospital Sunday after experiencing difficulty and died on Tuesday.
The following obituary appears in today's Bryan–College Station Eagle.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Michael, Joyce and Kenneth.
