She was born in Eyler's Valley, the daughter of John C. and Adaline Eyler Eckman.

Mrs. Weller was a life-long member of the Methodist Episcopal church. Her husband died January 23. 1936.

Surviving are the following children: Ernest E. Weller, Providence, Rhode Island; Charles R. Weller, Philadelphia: and Bruce S. Weller, Cleveland, Ohio. A daughter, Mrs Carrie Weller Yost, died some weeks ago from injuries received when struck by an automobile while visiting in Phoenix, Arizona, with her daughter. Six grandchildren and one great-grandchild also survive.

Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Yost home, 138 South Broad street, in charge of the Rev. E. F. llgenfritz. Interment was made in Burns Hill cemetery.
