Lillian Weisman

Lillian Weisman of Carbondale died Friday, Feb. 5, 2004, at Heritage Park Care Center in Carbondale. She was 97.

A funeral was held in Florida, and a memorial service will be held in the valley at a later date.

She was born July 9, 1906, in Romania to Nathan Wasserman and Tillie Auerbach Wasserman.

She married Max Weisman in 1927 in Providence, R.I.

Mrs. Weisman loved to learn, and spent her senior years in Florida. She attended Elder Hostels and local seminars on current events. She loved to read and taught a program of wellness movements to elderly people. She was hired at the age of 78 by Margate University to train nurses in her program.

Mrs Weisman also cared for a comatose patient for two years as a volunteer.

She worked at her program until age and dementia prohibited it.

She placed family first always and loved her heritage from God. Her family remembers her as a loving and caring person.

Mrs. Weisman helped raise her grandson Joshua in his younger years.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Max Weisman, in 1976; and by a son, Alfred Irving Weisman in 1984.

She is survived by a daughter, Etar, of Aspen; by grandsons and granddaughter-in-law Joshua Moses Samuel of Longmont, David and Janet Weisman of Davie, Fla., and Steeve and Cheryl Weisman of Providence, R.I.; by great-grandchildren Nicole Samuel, 16, Matthew Samuel, 13, Kendall Samuel, 11, Alexis Weisman, 11, and Jared Weisman, 9; by special friends Jean Heran and Harrie Rubin of Margate, Fla., and Florence Englebardt of Woodmere, Long Island, N.Y.; and by many nieces and nephews, whom she loved as her own children.

Farnum Holt Funeral Home in Glenwood Springs is in charge of arrangements.
