Freda Heitzman Weigel


Freda Amelia Weigel passed away on September 11, 2018, at the age of 86 years old. She was born to the late Fred and Amelia Heitzman on October 1, 1931, in Batesville, IN.
Freda graduated from Batesville HS in 1949. She spent many summers creating fond memories at Liberty Park in Batesville and nearby Pipe Creek. In 1955, she married childhood friend and high school sweetheart Tom Weigel at Saint Mark Lutheran Church.
After a few years, the couple settled in Carmel, IN, where they lived until 2016, raising four children. Freda worked for many years in the dress department at L.S. Ayres & Co., earning numerous awards for her stellar customer service.
Freda was a friend to everyone, making all whom she met feel welcome and loved. With her friends and family, she enjoyed spending summers at Lakes Wawasee and Webster, playing many card games including bridge, 500 and Uno, and meeting for lunch or coffee. Gatherings were often filled with wine, chocolate and always good conversation and laughter!
Freda is survived by her husband of 62 years, Tom, son Jay (Kay) of Charlotte, NC, daughters Cathy Eckstein (Darrell) of Scottsdale, AZ, and Beth Laskey (Nathan) of Granite Bay, CA, and 7 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. In addition to her parents, Freda was preceded in death by her son Mark Frederick Weigel and brother Paul Heitzman.
A funeral celebrating Freda's life will be held at 11am on Saturday, September 29, at Cornerstone Lutheran Church, 4850 E. Carmel Drive, Carmel IN.
In lieu of flowers contributions to the American Cancer Society, 800-227-2345 or, would be appreciated.
