CHICAGO (AP) _ Nella Fermi Weiner, an artist and teacher and the daughter of pioneering nuclear physicist Enrico Fermi, died at age 64.

She died Tuesday of complications from lung cancer at her home near the University of Chicago, where her father achieved the world's first controlled nuclear chain reaction.

Born in Rome, Mrs. Weiner came to the United States with her parents in 1938. She taught in the University of Chicago Lab School for over 30 years and worked as an artist in oils, acrylics and pottery. She began a second career as a financial planner after illness forced her to give up artwork.

Mrs. Weiner is survived by a son, a daughter and two grandchildren.
