Lucy May Weiss

Lucy May Weiss, 96, of Hinsdale, passed away Oct. 5, 2023.

Born to Mae Chaplin in Chicago in 1927, Lucy grew up in Hinsdale and was a graduate of Hinsdale High School. When World War II ended, her high school sweetheart, Ralph Michael Weiss, returned from his service in the Naval Air Force.

In August 1948, they were married and she accompanied Ralph to the University of Illinois in Champaign. They enjoyed 66 years together at their home in Hinsdale, until Ralph passed in 2014.

Having a family of many in-laws (25 adults and 31 children), their lives were filled with large family reunions. Lucy and Ralph enjoyed fond memories of times spent with their dear friends Jack and Estelle Capps and their children.

She worked and retired from the Official Airline Guide in Oak Brook, pursued a career in real estate and enjoyed traveling with Ralph.

Lucy is survived by her children, Ronald (Quy), Alan (Cathy), Linda Weiss and Timothy (Sharon); her grandchildren, Sandra (Jason) Mitchell, Mark (Danielle) Weiss, Pamela (Stephen) Zabawski, Christian Weiss, Daniel (Crystal), Christopher (Jennifer), Kelly and Matthew Weiss; and her great-grandchildren, Colin, Taylor, Nathan and Payton.

Interment will be private at Zion Lutheran Cemetery in Oak Brook.
