From Weitzel's Personalakten:

Betty Dobrindt (geb. 08.02.1912 in Düsseldorf). Married on 02.03.1933.

One son - Gunter (geb. 15.07.1938)
Two Daughters - Bettina (geb. 18.10.1933) & Ursula (geb. 13.02.1936).

The name of his wife is Betty Wengenroth born 8 February 1912, died on 4 August 1998. Is buried with her husband.

Below are a few items from SS-Obergruppenführer Fritz Weitzel's Personalakten showing info on his wife & children. Perhaps she re-married after Fritz died and acquired the name of Wengenroth, but the records clearly show her maiden name was Dobrindt:

Yes, I've seen this photo on http://ww2gravestone.com/general/weitzel-fritz-philip. I don't doubt she ended life with the name Wengenroth, but I believe that the site is incorrect in stating she was born Wengenroth (as Weitzel's Personalakten shows). Her maiden-name (Mädchenname) was Dobrindt.

Fritz Weitzel was obviously reinterred. Below is a photo (from John P. Moore) of his original/temporary grave.
