Eunell Lucille (Spies) Weyand of Round Top passed away on November 1, 2014 at Brenham Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
Eunell was born on March 19, 1929 in Winedale, Texas to Benno and Alma Cordes Spies. She was baptized in St. John’s Lutheran Church in Warrenton on August 25, 1929 by Rev. H. Brussotte and confirmed September 6, 1942 in the same church by Rev. Jul. Bosshard. She married Kearney Weyand on April 13, 1947 in Warrenton at St. John’s.
She was a rancher, homemaker, and was employed by Round Top-Carmine ISD for 32 years. Eunell was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Round Top and helped serve and provide food for various occasions. She was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, N.R.A., T.R.T.A., Texas Farm Bureau, the 42 domino club at “On Deck”, and the Shelby birthday group.
Eunell is survived by two sons, Roger Weyand of Burton and Kerry Weyand of Burton and his special friend Lisa Walker: daughter; Kay Landua and husband, James, of Brenham; sister, Rosalie Moehring of Latium; and sister-in-laws Joyce Spies of Waller and Dorothy Spies of Bryan. She is also survived by three grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Grandchildren are: Axel Weyand of Fort Hood, Shannon Bullin and her husband, Keith, of Bryan; their children, Bailey Kay and Brad Allen. Surviving also are Matt Lampe and wife, Michelle, of Brenham; their children, Megan Marie and Mason Derek.

She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and brothers; Glenver Spies and Ledell Spies and two infant children.
Eunell loved her day lilies and flowers and watching them grow and bloom. As a rancher, she kept track of the cattle and loved the land. She was generous by nature and enjoyed the many activities of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and was looking forward to the birth of another great-grandchild in December. Eunell enjoyed family get-togethers and lovingly made Christmas ornaments and keepsake boxes for her great-grandchildren. She never complained about her health, although the ravages of vasculitis were apparent at the end.
Pallbearers will be Axel Weyand, Matt Lampe, Keith Bullin, Gary Moehring, Glyn Roy Spies, and Mike Noak.
