JOSEPHINE E. WEILANDAge 69, of Elburn, passed away unexpectedly at her home, Friday morning, December 19, 2008. Wife of LaVerne Weiland, thirty-two years in partnership with William Hanson of Hanson Excavating, Joesphine was diagnosed with kidney cancer in September and had battled courageously through surgery and long weeks of treatment. Hospitalized recently, she returned home Thursday evening anticipating the comfort of hospice care and family time. Called instead to Heaven for the Holidays, she claims now the promise of her Savior and the hope of her faithful prayers. BORN / EARLY YEARSShe was born January 27, 1939 in Aurora, IL, the daughter of William and Anna (Medernach) Hanson. Josephine attended S.S. Peter & Paul grade school and went on to graduate from Maple Park High School with the class of 1957.She met LaVerne Weiland in 1956 at a Little 8 Tournament at the the Genoa High School. LaVerne remembers fondly how his best friend, (and Josephine’s cousin), LeRoy Probst, introduced them. It was love at first sight that night and on October 26, 1957, they were wed at S.S. Peter & Paul Church, Virgil. They first made their home in West Chicago in an upstairs apartment at Bill & Arlene Patterman’s. Five years later, they moved to Virgil and, through the ensuing years, moved from farm to farm until LaVerne built his bride their first home on Main Street Road. In 1972, they built the present family home on Green Road. OCCUPATION / WORK HISTORY Josephine worked briefly at Furnas Electric in Batavia until Daniel was born and three little girls followed thereafter. Josephine had a busy life she loved as the children grew. As grandchildren began to arrive, life only got better! When she wasn’t babysitting, she was always ready to "get her purse and go to the casino" with a friend. She and LaVerne enjoyed several trips to Hawaii and Jamaica among other destinations. Still, there was no place like home for Josephine. She was especially fond of the many house plants she raised there to adorn her beautiful home.
