Long before LuJean’s valiant and courageous battle with brain cancer she wrote her own obituary. She dreamed of living in Asiago, Italy till the ripe old age of 94 and living out her days wearing purple.
In LuJean’s words:
Louella Jean (LuJean) Cunico-Weber, (94) of Salem, Utah. Passed away August 4, 2043 in Asiago, Italy.
LuJean, Louey, Lulu, or Louella Jean Cunico was born May 4, 1949 in Provo, Utah to Jean Olea Shepherd (May 31, 1923 – December 9, 1996) and Charles (Chuck) Christopher Cunico (December 24, 1919 – June 25, 1990). LuJean was the second of 5 children: Robert, LuJean, John, Jeff and Angie.
LuJean grew up in Orem and graduated from Orem High School. After High School she got a summer job at Signal Mt. Lodge in the heart of Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Working at Signal Lodge was her favorite job. When she returned home, she had saved up enough money to buy her dream car, a beautiful pale yellow 1967 Mustang from her Uncle Lee (her mother’s brother). Later that year she began working at Signetics in Orem, Utah where she met her first husband Greg Hullinger. LuJean married Gregory Alan Hullinger on August 20, 1971 in the Salt Lake City Temple. They had four children: Damon Christopher, Andrea Jean, Brook Lin, and Adam J.
LuJean worked for the State of Utah and the Alpine School District and had the privilege of owning her own business (Valley Mill Works) with her second husband Bart Weber.
The greatest treasures in her life were her sweetheart Bart and her children: Damon, Andi, Brook and Adam, their grandchildren and great grandchild.
Memories and Moments that made her smile: Summers at Swift Creek in the Uintah’s with the Hullinger Family, Thanksgiving in Idaho with her cousin Jeannie, racquetball, running, fishing with her brother-in-law Ron Larsen, and of course “Jeanealogy”, otherwise known as family history or genealogy, however thanks to her mother’s interest the term Jeanealogy was coined and seemed to stick around in the Cunico family. Her greatest Jeanealogy treasure hunt was meeting Cunico families from around the world including Illinois, Michigan, New Mexico, California, Canada and Italy and attending the wonderful Cunico Family Reunion in Asiago Italy spearheaded by her genius cousin, Barth Cunico from Marseilles, Illinois.
LuJean was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served her first mission at the St. George Family History Center with her husband Bart and a second mission at the ROC (Records Operation Center) in Orem, Utah. She specialized in Italian images and records.
After her divorce from Greg Hullinger, LuJean moved to Lehi to be close to her brother Jeff who introduced her to her to her next-door neighbor Bart Weber who would eventually become her husband. LuJean and Bart were married on November 15, 1997 in Salt Lake City at the home of a good friend, Al Rounds. LuJean and Bart were later sealed in the Timpanogos Temple on May 19, 2006.
LuJean is survived by her Husband Bart of 46 years, her 4 children: Oldest son, Damon and his wife Annie and their 3 children: Kandus, Lucy and Deacon; Daughter, Andrea and her husband Jason and their 5 children: Payton and his wife Jen and their son Jay, Charlie, Emily and her husband Jackson, McKay and Harry; Daughter Brook and her significant other Scott, his son Striker, and her two girls Amie and Ellie; Son Adam and his wife Ashley and their children Noah and Zoe; Bart’s two children Desiree and Nathan; and her brothers John and Jeff Cunico and sister Angie Larsen.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Chuck and Jean and older Brother Robert (Bob) Jacob Cunico and his wife Sandra Jeffs Cunico.
I am excited to meet my eternal family. A prime lesson I have learned is that everything hinges on love. We were sent to earth to love and serve, to show charity, kindness and compassion. After serving a wonderful fulfilling life, I dance through the doorway of eternal life into the arms of my eternal family who await me there.
A funeral service will be held at Taco Amigo in Pleasant Grove, Utah August 10, 2043. Family and Friends are welcomed to meet at the Orem Cemetery.
LuJean, Louey, Lulu, or if you prefer to be technical… Louella, will be buried at the Orem City Cemetery August 6, 2043. Lorena Darnell “Presley” will open a concert featuring Sawyer Brown, Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck. Chocolate, Mexican Cokes and smiles are welcomed. Please donate flowers and Chocolate to your best friend.
Every once in a while
In the middle of an ordinary life
Love gives us a fairytale… Come true
