Shirley (Wilson) Weiss

Shirley (Wilson) Weiss, 92, was surrounded by family as she passed, February 28, 2022 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Shirley graduated from Versailles High School in 1947 as the Valedictorian, President of her class, and President of the Sunshine Society. She continued her education and graduated from the Indiana Business School. She was a longtime resident of Greensburg, IN, was active in the United Methodist Church, and retired from Delta Faucet as the Plant Manager’s Secretary in 1991. She then moved to Carmel, IN to care for her grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her sisters Margaret (Wilson) Ehlers and Vivian (Wilson) Watts, and her nephews Ivan Ehlers and John Watts.

She is survived by her daughters, Charissa Weiss of Indianapolis, IN, Laurice (Christopher) Varnau of Indianapolis, IN, and Alison Weiss of Galveston, IN. She is also survived by her grandson Nicholas Varnau, and granddaughters Hannah (Tessa) Vashel and Bethany (Henry) Roberts, great-granddaughters Abigail, Kendall, and Madelyn Roberts, and several nieces, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

Shirley donated her body to the Wright State University’s Boonshoft School of Medicine’s Anatomical Gift Program. A private celebration of life for the family will be planned in the summer. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Association are appreciated.
