Eunice was born to Chris and Elsie (Sabinske) Dunteman on January 16, 1929 in Tracy, Minnesota. She was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church. Eunice graduated from Tracy High School in 1946. She married Donald “Donnie” Weedman on January 28, 1947. To this union were born four children, Kenny, Kathy, Kevin, and Kent. They lived and farmed near Amiret for many years. Donnie and Eunice built a cabin on Lake Andrew, near Alexandria. They would go there fishing often during the summer and winter months. Eventually, they made this their home, coming back to Amiret to help “the boys” during the spring and fall crop season. Eunice was involved in the Ladies’ Group at the Tracy United Methodist Church. She was a sub-postmistress for the Amiret Post Office, and she served on the Sodus Township Board. When she moved to Alexandria, she became active in her new church community, the United Methodist Church, by joining the Ladies’ Group. Eunice was a volunteer for the Douglas County Relay for Life. She helped people who couldn’t drive get to the doctor’s appointments. Eunice traveled the United States extensively attending Sea Bee (Navy) reunions and took an extended trip to Europe. She had a special group of ladies she enjoyed having lunch or coffee with and going to water aerobics. During her life, Eunice was not only a devoted mother, she was a loving partner and wife to Donnie, helping him with all aspects of farming from milking cows and raising chickens, to rock picking, bean walking, and tillage. She made the best buns and always had the coffee on and bars ready for lunch. Eunice helped Kenny and Kent farm for years after Donnie passed away by hauling grain during fall harvest or helping them move equipment from field to field, and making and delivering field lunches. Donnie passed away on February 14, 1993. Eunice remained in Alexandria until she moved to Marshall in 2008.
