ROBERTS — With the warmth of a sunny day and angels to guide her way, Linda Kay Weber of Roberts flew with courage and dignity to meet her savior on Easter Sunday.

Mrs. Weber passed away peacefully at 11:55 a.m. Sunday, April 21, 2019, at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana surrounded by her cherished family after a long and extended illness. She was a warrior to the end.

Her funeral will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Roberts, with the Rev. Priscilla Geerdes officiating. Burial will be in Lyman Township Cemetery. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at the church.

Mrs. Weber was born Jan. 21, 1947, in Champaign, a daughter of Charles E. and Geneva C. Kruse Davis. She married Terry Weber on July 5, 1985, in Roberts. He survives in Roberts.

Also surviving are her children, Kim (Randy) York of Melvin, Donald (Deb) Collins of Melvin, Brian (Aimee) Collins of Wimberly, Texas, and Lori (Rocky) Sherfey of Paxton; 13 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; a sister, Judith King of Champaign; and two brothers, Danny (Nancy) Davis of Urbana and Charles (Karla) Davis of Altoona, Iowa.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a daughter, Cathy Collins; and a great-grandson, Tyrell Trotter.

An amazing green thumb, Mrs. Weber was a natural at her hobby of home gardening. In her spare time she enjoyed crocheting, baking and making jewelry. She looked forward to family barbecues and get-togethers. We will miss her sparkling blue eyes that could give you “the look,” along with her contagious laugh but most of all her fierce and loyal love.

Memorial tributes can be made to her family.
