Obituary for Janice Weigand Shea

Meriden. Janice Weigand Shea, 83 years old, the wife of Wiliiam T. Shea, Esq., died suddenly on April 8th at MidState Medical Center in Meriden, Connecticut. Aside from her husband, she is survived by her children Mary, Bill, Ellen, Kathleen, Christine and Margo; sisters-in-law Cynthia Weigand, Beatrice “Betty” Bremer and Eileen Trainor; children-in-law Yuri Dombrovski, Allen Mendelson, Suzanne Welder Shea and Matthew Barlow; grandchildren Emily Dombrovskaya, Haley and Charlie Shea and Avery and Ella Smith; and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She is pre-deceased by her parents Joseph and Josephine Weigand and her brother Joseph Weigand, Jr., all of Meriden.
Janice’s family, friends and neighbors have known her as a deeply empathetic, fiercely loyal, generous and gregarious woman devoted to her husband and family. Her compassion, insightfulness and humor, combined with a deep wisdom drawn from her Catholic faith, drew those she met into her orbit. Unreservedly friendly and exuberant in all things, Janice spread light to those whose presence she graced.
She lived a rich life in the city of Meriden, a place she was proud to call home and which shaped her identity as a Polish and Irish Catholic with working class roots and deep community values. While raising six children, Janice was a stalwart partner as her husband built political and professional careers in the 1960s and ‘70s and an active leader in nonprofit education, social services and religious organizations for most of her adult life. A skier, tennis player, cook, gardener and consummate hostess for much of her life, Janice continued to take pleasure in good books, great conversations, her beloved Huskies basketball and the Red Sox.
Calling hours will be held from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm Friday, April 13, 2018 at John J. Ferry, Inc., 88 East Main Street, Meriden, CT, 06450. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, April 14th at 10:00 am at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, 35 Center Street, Meriden, Connecticut, with Father Edward Nadolny presiding. Everyone is asked to meet directly at the church.
