Barbara Jean Weller 2022

Barbara’s Obituary Barbara Jean Weller (July 13, 1948 – September 20, 2022) was born in Joliet, Illinois to Leonard “Brownie” Weller and Lucy Mae Redmon. She was raised in Plainfield, Illinois on the family farm with her two brothers, and graduated from Plainfield High School in 1966 as salutatorian. Barbara earned her Bachelor’s in History from Cornell College in 1970. There, she was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship for international scholarly exchange in London, England. She went on to graduate top of her class from University of Iowa School of Law in 1973, as one of only a handful of women. Barbara practiced law with the armed forces in San Diego, California for several years, before relocating to Washington, D.C. to pursue a career with the civilian agencies. There, she was rapidly promoted, including at the U.S. Postal Service and the Department of Energy. Barbara soon rose to the leadership position of Deputy Solicitor at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. In 1981, she met the love of her life, Dennis Siepmann, and they married on Christmas Eve, 1984. In 1987, Barbara departed the federal service and moved to Sterling, Virginia to devote herself to raising her three sons. She created a household of unconditional love for her family, and gave her children every ounce of wisdom, compassion, and kindness required for the flourishing lives they enjoy today. Barbara loved Classic Hollywood cinema, the fiction of Jane Austen and Charlotte Brontë, interior design and fashion, law and politics, and Downton Abbey. She displayed an insatiable, curious intellect her entire life, and lifted everyone she met with her wit, charm, and grace. Barbara is survived by her adoring husband Dennis; three sons, Christopher, Daniel, and William; elder brother James Sr.; sister-in-law, Mary; and nephew, James Jr. She is now reunited with her father, mother, aunts and uncles, and younger brother, William Weller. Barbara’s absence is an irreparable hole in our hearts, but we feel her spirit close each day when we live the way she showed us: with integrity, and selfless care for one another.
