Marlborough – Norma (Baumann) Weller, 88, died Thursday, May 29, 2014 at Cape Cod Hospital, following a period of declining health. A native of Waltham, she was the daughter of the late William and Lois (Maines) Baumann and the wife of the late Edward G. Weller Sr., who died in 1986.
Norma moved to Marlborough in 1959 from Waltham. She raised her family, and was an active member of St. Matthias Parish, attending Mass daily, and participating in parish fundraisers especially the Christmas Bazaar.
She had been a waitress at various restaurants throughout the years before working at the former Rich's Department Store in Marlborough as a department manager. She retired at the store's closing in 1997. She then had more time to enjoy exercise class, bingo, ceramics, and became an avid TV watcher.
She was faithful to all Boston sport teams, but also followed golf, tennis, the Food Network, and HGTV. She never turned down an opportunity to dine out and especially enjoyed hot dogs from A&W, a lobster roll, or coffee ice cream.
She had a close circle of friends with whom she stayed in contact, following her move to Cape Cod in 2006.
She is survived by her son, Edward G. Weller Jr. and his wife Kathy of W. Haven, Conn.; her daughter, Lois Bendoris and her husband Stephen of Dennis; her grandsons, Christopher Dion and his fiancée Melanie Flanders of Marlborough, Kevin Dion of Winchendon, and Edward G. Weller III, and his wife Katie of Oldsmar, Fla.; and her great-grandson, Colton Weller of Oldsmar, Fla. She was also the sister of the late Gerald Baumann and Elaine Baumann (Sr. Mary Tressa).
