Shirley Elizabeth Weiand, 75, Cheyenne Wells, Colorado died April 6, 2019 at Lamar Estates Nursing Home in Lamar, Colorado.
Shirley was born in Hugo, Colorado on April 18, 1943 to Alfred Joseph Clark and Caroline Elizabeth Clark, the 1st of 4 children. She graduated from Hugo High School in May of 1962.
On June 2, 1962 she married James Joseph Weiand in Hugo and then moved to Cheyenne Wells in 1964. To this union 5 children were born: Todd James, Mitzi Jo, Mark Alan, Tracy Ann and Troy Michael (Bud).
She spent much of her life as a homemaker and taking care of her family and doing what she could for others whenever there was a need. She was the essence of a Christian, serving others unselfishly.
She was a fabulous cook for her Family and worked as a cook at the Cheyenne Wells School for many years. Then later she went to work at Keefe Memorial Hospital as the secretary of the Radiology Department. She very much enjoyed working with the ladies there.
Her passions were sewing, quilting, and embroidering, as she was always making something for her Grandkids. She also loved making the Fair Queen and Princess Royalty Banners each year and would enter quilts and clothing that she made in the Cheyenne County Fair as well.
She had a love for being a Rodeo Mom and for many years was the Secretary for the Little Britches Rodeo in Cheyenne Wells. She enjoyed going to the Rodeos with her kids and would often be seen at the Fairgrounds with her Family either running cattle into the chutes or moving barrels. She took much pride in the kids with their horses.
In August 2018 the highlight of her Life was for her and Jim being honored as the Grand Marshals of the Cheyenne County Fair Parade, where they rode through on their horse and buggy.
