ELBURN—Jennifer Weber, 49, was pronounced dead after being transported to Delnor-Community Hospital in Geneva following an apparent seizure during the sidewalk sale Friday on the 500 block of Main Street in Elburn.

Weber’s cousin, Paula Keiner of Elburn, said they set up their Elburn Days booth at 5:15 a.m. that day, for the Tastefully Simple franchise they own. At about 10 a.m., they were sitting at the booth in front of Dave’s Barbershop when Weber put her head down on the table. Keiner thought her cousin was just resting, since they had gotten up early that day. However, Weber then appeared to be having a seizure and was struggling to breathe, Keiner said.

Keiner said after she called 911, Elburn paramedics arrived immediately, conducted lifesaving measures and transported the victim to Delnor.

Weber, a resident of Aurora, was married to Armin Weber and had two children, Jessica, 25, and Dean, 22. She was the daughter of former Sugar Grove trustee Mary Fraley.
