Helen Virginia Weishaar

Mrs. Helen Virginia (Summers) Weishaar, 91, of Frederick, MD passed away June 23, 2024 at her home where she spent her last days surrounded by those who loved her most. She is now at home with our Lord and reunited with two of the loves of her life, her devoted husband, Calvin Eugene Weishaar, and her beloved son, Jimmy Eugene Weishaar. 

Born December 27, 1932 in Middletown, MD, Helen was the daughter of the late Albert Luther Summers and Erma Hill (Winpigler) Summers. Helen was a dedicated wife to Calvin for 62 years before his passing in 2012, a devoted mother to Jimmy for 65 years until his passing in 2019, and until she took her last breath, a loving grandmother to the final love of her life, her only grandchild, Vincent “Vince/Vinny” Calvin Weishaar for 33 years. 

Helen prided herself on being the best wife, mother, and grandmother, as well as, sister and aunt she could be. She loved caring for her family, making daily meals, doing laundry, cleaning her home(s). (There were many because Calvin loved the feeling of newness in a home and a car, as did she.) She worked hard to keep each home pristine and polished like new. Helen took pleasure in doing yard work alongside Calvin, as well. 

In her free time, Helen enjoyed shopping, people watching, and playing cards with her best friend and sister, Emma, until her passing in 2022. She loved Hemp’s country ham, chocolate (in recent years Kinder Bueno minis), macadamia nut cookies, getting a “bun” or other sweet treat from Panera, sharing a small cheese pizza from Jack’s Subs & Pizza, dining on Flo’s Filet from Longhorn (or similar order at Outback), taking car rides, getting her hair done, and getting a Nutty Coconut ice cream cone from BRUESTER with her niece. Mostly, she loved to laugh and did it well and often! Her smile lit up her face and everyone’s heart who saw it!

Above all else, Helen loved her family. She was the last of 9 brothers and sisters whom she loved dearly, especially the youngest sister and her best friend Emma Harner. Even in her last moments, simply seeing or hearing the voice of her grandson, Vince, lit up her face with joy. 

Besides her loving husband, Calvin and devoted son, Jimmy, Helen was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Erma Summers, and her 8 siblings, Annie Mercer, Roy Summers Sr., Charles Summers, Earl Summers, James Summers, Jane Summers, Erma Summers, and Emma Harner. 

Helen is survived by her beloved grandson, Vince, her daughter-in-law, Nancy Weishaar, her sister-in-law, Rubbie Blentlinger, and many loving nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, great greats, and even great great greats. 

During her last 5 years, Helen fought and won the battle against multiple moments of varying illness. Her strength and perseverance are unmatched by many. Helen loved life and fought hard to enjoy it. Her final battle was with pain that weakened her to the point her body was too tired to fight anymore. Throughout these 5 years, Helen was a patient at Frederick Davita Dialysis where she was loved and cared for like family. Each hospital stay was followed by a period of rehabilitation. Although many who cared for her in the rehabilitation facilities were kind and attentive to her, the medical staff and rehabilitation staff (and residents) at Frederick Health & Rehabilitation Center were truly unmatched in their love and care for her. She was endearingly known and referred to as “Aunt Helen” at Frederick Health Hospital, and each rehabilitation facility she attended, but especially at Frederick Davita Dialysis and Frederick Health & Rehabilitation Center. We are forever grateful for the love and care she received at each of these medical facilities, as well as, Frederick Health Home Care and Frederick Health Hospice. 

Helen’s caregiver would like to also extend a special thank you to Dr. Anita Nahar, Dr. Narayan Kulkarni, Dr. David Yu, Dr. Dustin Yoon, Dr. Marsha Shaw, and Dr. Raya Massoud for their excellent care of Helen, but especially to Dr. Weiming Yan who went above and beyond to make sure Helen received the care she needed to overcome a terrible sickness (AND SHE DID!)

Helen will be forever loved and remembered and missed beyond compare. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation in Helen’s memory to the charity that speaks to your heart the most. 

The family will receive friends from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM on Friday, June 28 at Stauffer Funeral Home, 1621 Opossumtown Pike Frederick, MD where services will begin at 12:30 PM. Per Helen’s request, there will be no repass following her burial.
