Weezy was the sweetest woman you could ever meet. For her, family always came first, especially when it came to cooking: spaghetti and meatballs for everyone and people went crazy trying to duplicate her horseshoe cookies. The origins of her advice were murky: don’t sit on cold curbs, don’t hang clothes on doorknobs, and don’t put new shoes on the table. If you didn’t behave, she’d threaten to “call the authorities”, a tactic that always worked. Weezy loved the Phils: “They better keep their eyes on that little white ball!” was her advice during the World Series. She loved her Delran home (60-year resident) and Hallmark movies, especially during the holidays.
She was the wife of the late Robert and is survived by her daughters, Susan (Robert) Sharp, Nancy Wikel and Shirley Farkas; her grandchildren, Vanessa, Dane, Connor and Rachel; and her sisters, Edna Curran, Mary Ahlquist and Barbara Rosell.
Family will celebrate 84 great years of the best mom, grandmother and sister ever privately.

    I remember as a kid Dane and I would get into all sorts of nonsense, like brother and sister really. Grandpa would be yelling his head off at us to ‘knock it off’ and Grandma would try to get Grandpa to “lighten up” depending upon how much of a P.I.T.A we were. I asked Grandpa one day why he loved to rile Grandma up, now I don’t remember his exact words, but I found it hilarious and endearing how they were always “going at it” back and forth, and back and forth. He loved her riled up and sassy. After Grandpa died that spark in Grandma left her. Few animals mate for life, well she is one such creature that mourned the loss of her mate so deeply that she never stopped missing & loving him–and waiting. She waited, day after day, year after year, until she could see him again. And now–SHE CAN.

    I love you Grams. Now and always. I hope wherever you are, you’re happy with Grandpa, being your sassy self.
