Anna Maria "Marie" Weiler Aust
Birth: Oct. 31, 1902
Mayen-Koblenzer Landkreis
Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
Death: Jul. 5, 1998
Albany County
New York, USA

My grandmother Marie was born in Niedermendig (a small town near Andernach - renamed simply Mendig in the 1960's when Niedermendig and Obermendig merged together) in Germany. Her parents were Peter and Maria (Berg) Weiler. She was the youngest of 11 children. When she was a child, there was a depression. Food was short, so she went to live with an aunt and her family on their farm in Dorff (near Aachen). She lived with them for a year, then returned home. She attended business school in Koblenz, and became a secretary at a tobacco firm in Niedermendig. After WWI, the US army occupied the Rhineland. On Christmas Eve, 1919 the US soldiers gave a party for the town's children. There, while helping supervise the children, she met my grandfather Bill Aust, who was a Supply Seargeant in the US Army. While dancing together, he gave her an ornament (a bird) off the Christmas tree. We still put it on our tree each year. On May 17, 1921, they were married, and a year later their only child - a daughter - Rosa Maria was born. A few months later they left Germany, and moved to the US settling in Schenectady, NY where Bill had found work. Maried stayed at home and kept house for the family in the house Bill had built himself for them. Bill passed away in 1956. In 1962, Rose and her son John (me) moved home to live with Marie. In 1991, Marie had a stroke. A year later she moved into a nearby nursing home, where my wife was a nurse. She died there peacefully on July 5, 1998.
