Andrea Michelle Weiler, age 25, of Clay City, IL passed away at 12:09 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at Carle Foundation Hospital in Champaign, IL.

She was born on October 28, 1987 in Champaign. Andrea will be remembered as a most loving mother to Lili, along with her beautiful spirit, optimism, and choice to always recognize good things in others around her. Baptized into the Methodist Church, Andrea was a Christian. She was a student at Lincoln Trail College and was preparing for degree work at Eastern Illinois University this summer, planning on pursuing a career as a CPA. Being outside, taking walks, and appreciating flowers—especially Asiatic Lilies—are all things that Andrea enjoyed. She remembered her first opportunity to visit a beach and to see a sunset there as a cherished experience. She had worked at Glik’s in Robinson and Lowe’s in Vincennes. Andrea expressed a desire to be an organ donor, and her family has honored that wish.
