Mary Beth P. Weber

Mary Beth P. Weber (Houpt) of Grafton went home to her Heavenly Father after a courageous battle with cancer on Sunday, Oct. 30, 2022, at the age of 57.

She was born to Wayne and Joan (Puerling) Houpt on Nov. 15, 1964.

Mary Beth married Jeff Weber on Sept. 20, 1986, and together they had three children.

Mary Beth graduated from Grafton High School in 1983, where she was involved in activities and made friendships that she maintained throughout her life.

Mary provided child care in her home for many years while putting herself through nursing school.

After graduating from nursing school, she was a longtime employee of St. Mary’s Ozaukee nursing staff.

Mary Beth was an active supporter of Special Olympics and Circle of Friends.

She loved camping with her family, roller skating, baking, traveling and annual trips with her mom and sisters.

Above all, Mary Beth’s passion rested with her children and all their many activities.

Mary Beth will remain in the hearts of her husband Jeff; her children Corey Weber, Andrea (Jeremy) Cagle and Ryan Weber; her “furry” grandchildren Chloe, Shiloh, Marlo and Levi; mother Joan Houpt; siblings Sandy (Jeff) Rath, Nancy Houpt and Joe (Kathryn) Houpt; and sisters-in-law Sandy Weber, Carrie Meschke, Kelly (John) Gartz and Jackie (Chuck) Busalacchi.

She is further survived by aunts, uncles, 17 nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.

Mary was preceded in death by her father Wayne Houpt, brother Scott Houpt, parents-in-law Ralph (Karen) Weber and sister-in-law Jodi Grunewald.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 1619 Washington St., Grafton, WI 53024.

The family will receive visitors at Eernisse Funeral Home, 1167 Washington Ave., Cedarburg, WI 53012, on Friday, Nov. 11, 2022, from 4 to 8 p.m. and again at St. Joseph Church on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022, from 10 to 10:50 a.m.
