Rosemary (Kimlinger) Weiser died Sept. 18, 2021 in Mesa, Arizona. Her funeral will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 in St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Sartell. The Rev. Ronald Weyrens will officiate and burial will be in the parish cemetery. Visitation will be one hour prior to the services Saturday at the church in Sartell.
Weiser was born Nov. 21, 1946 in St. Paul to Nicholas “Nick” and Genevieve “Jean” (Lucas) Kimlinger. She was the third of seven children. She attended Sacred Heart Grade School and St. Paul Johnson High School, graduating in 1964. She graduated from St. Mary’s College of Nursing in Minneapolis in 1981 and had a 30-year career as a registered nurse, including 16 years at St. Cloud Hospital. She retired in 2011. In her retirement years she was a home nurse, church and nursing home volunteer. In all she did, she gave her whole heart.
Weiser married Florian “Floyd” Weiser on Dec. 20, 1985 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in St. Paul. She became a stepmother to his four sons. She loved fishing and time on the lake with Floyd. She was a wonderful wife who cared for Floyd throughout a long illness until his death in 2015.
Weiser loved her family, playing cards, bingo, traveling and her career as a nurse. She was a dedicated daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, great-aunt and friend. Just like her mom, she learned to make a bed with precise corners. She started off each day making her bed carefully and gave equally precise attention to all the tasks and challenges that life presented her.
She was a strong woman who courageously overcame adversity. She was adventurous and she moved out to Mesa, Arizona in June of 2020.
Weiser will be remembered for her thoughtfulness, generosity, attentiveness and supportive encouragement to her family and friends. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a ready smile. She wanted nothing more than to know her family and friends were well and happy.
Survivors include her sister, Kathleen (Roger) Weis of St. Cloud; brothers, Michael (Julie) Kimlinger of St. Paul, Bruce (Mary) Kimlinger of North St. Paul, and Richard (Teresa) Kimlinger of Rochester; her sister-in-law, Pamela Kimlinger of Lompoc, California; her stepsons, Larry, Thomas and David Weiser, all of St. Paul; 19 nieces and nephews, including special nieces, Theresa (Greg) Kremer and Jennifer (Ruben) Zayas, both of Sartell; many grandnieces and grandnephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; her brothers, Kenneth and Melvin Kimlinger; and her stepson, Raymond Weiser.
