Obituary

Elizabeth “Carolyn” Wieters, 85, of Lake St. Louis, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
 

She will be forever cherished by her late husband, Robert “Bob” Wieters; son, Eric (Sharon) Wieters of Charleston, SC; her daughter, Laura (Brett) Kress of O’Fallon, MO; her treasured and beloved  grandchildren Dalton and Jack Kress, who both also willingly served as her “special personal assistants”; step-grandchildren Christina (Marcus) Page and Christopher (Hannah) March; her sister and best friend, Lela “Joanne” (Wootsie) Ditch of Augusta, MO; her late brother Donald Johnson of Northport, FL; and her sister-in-law, Lorraine “Mimi” Wieters of Lake St. Louis, MO.

 

Carolyn was born on August 9, 1936 in Buckhorn, MO to Raymond and Helen (Bennett) Johnson. Growing up and throughout her entire life, Carolyn was recognized by family and friends as sweet, graceful, kind, generous, selfless, and humble. When she walked in the room, people noticed and were always drawn to her beauty and loving soul; so much so that her classmates voted her Prom Queen in high school and she was asked to model for Famous Barr in 1945. She loved tennis, traveling, and shopping. She was an Executive Assistant at the United States Army Corps of Engineers, the owner of Celebrations Banquet Hall in North St. Louis County, and a member of the Eastern Star. If she were still here with us today, she would be shy and blushing about these compliments and accomplishments because to her, family was her greatest achievement.

 

Carolyn was fortunate to start her own family when she met the love-of-her life, Bob Wieters. She knew in her heart they would create a fun and loving future. Carolyn and Bob shared 58 years together, spending winters in San Carlos, Mexico and enjoying summers at their Lake of the Ozarks home with family and friends. They were blessed with two beautiful children whom she cherished with all of her heart. She was also close to her extended family including three generations of nieces and nephews. Fondly known as “Auntie,” it’s a title that has been passed down through those generations because she loved them all like her own. Carolyn was determined and fought hard through her illness with the same sweetness, gracefulness, kindness, generous and selflessness she demonstrated throughout her entire life. She will be so dearly missed, but never forgotten.
