Bernardine Mary Ann Weber was born to Bernard and Martha (Linkowski) Bayerl Dec. 28, 1928, in Winsted. She grew up in Winsted, graduating from Holy Trinity High School with the class of 1947.
May 6, 1950, Bernardine was united in marriage to Kenneth Weber in St. Paul. They owned and operated Weber’s Landscaping and Weber’s Folly Greenhouse in Minnetonka.
Kenneth retired in 1984, and they moved to their nursery in Annandale, where they continued to run a smaller greenhouse business.
After Kenneth’s death in 1988, Bernie continued to run Weber’s Folly Greenhouse on her own. Due to early signs of Alzheimer’s, Bernie retired in 2010. She entered Annandale Memory Care in 2012. In 2013, she moved to The Fountains at Hosanna in Lakeville to be closer to her daughter, Kathleen. Bernie loved working in the greenhouse and was well known for her beautiful plants and vegetables. She spent her winter months volunteering at St. Cloud Hospital.
Bernie is survived by her children, Kathleen (James) Arhart of Lakeville, Kay Ann (Tad) Anderson of Minnetonka, and Kristen Weber of Apple Valley; sister-in-law, Deborah Weber of Rockford; eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; son, Keith Weber; brother, Robert Bayerl; and sister Genevieve Fryer.
