Rosa B. Weikel

April 22, 1921 - July 4, 2007

South Bend Tribune 7/7/2007
MISHAWAKA - Rosa B. Weikel, 86, was the oldest daughter of Charles E. and Mary Evelyn Weikel of Mishawaka. She was preceded in death by her sisters, Ethel Marsh and Ruth Hunter; and by a brother, Charles E. Weikel Jr. Rosa leaves seven nieces and nephews, David L. Hunter of South Bend, Robert H. Hunter Jr. of Mishawaka, Charles E. Weikel III of Roan, William Weikel of Maple Grove, Minnesota, John Marsh of Houston, Texas, Nancy Levine of Charlotte, North Carolina, and Mary Barrett of Charlotte. Aunt Rosie, as she was affectionately called, was a world traveler. She traveled all over Europe, Asia and even the Soviet Union. Rosa sometimes would include her nieces and nephews in her travels.

What she will be most remembered for is her dedication to art and to the children of Mishawaka High School, where she was a school teacher and head of the Art Department for many years. She recreated many of her paintings into living stills that are a part of the Vesper service today. Many students of Rosa's went on to become commercial artists. One of her students was even published in a well-known art magazine and gave her credit for becoming an artist. Rosa retired from Mishawaka High School in 1980. Her art can be seen in many public buildings in the Michiana area today including Mishawaka City Hall, Notre Dame University and several churches, to name a few. After her retirement, she spent countless hours painting the Michiana area, and planting one of the most beautiful backyard gardens loaded with her most favorite flowers and shrubs.

Friends may visit with the family on Sunday, July 8, 2007, from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Bubb Funeral Chapel, 3910 N. Main St. Funeral services will be held in the funeral home at 10 a.m. Monday, with Rev. Sam Boys officiating. Burial will follow at Fairview Cemetery.
