06/10/1923 — 12/28/2022
From Richland, WA | Born in Newport, WA
Our beloved Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, and Great-Great Grandma, Marian Eunice (Kelleigh) Wierman, passed away on December 28th, 2022. Marian was born on June 10th,1923, in Newport, Washington. Her dad and mom, William and Anna Kelleigh, brother William, sister Louise, brother LeRoy and Marian moved to Grandview, Washington. Marian attended and graduated from Grandview High School, where she met the love of her life, Paul Wierman.
Marian’s husband, Paul, preceded her in passing in 2019. She was always saying how much she missed her “man”. Now together again, they can look forward to enjoying one another’s company reminiscing about the many Fishing and Hunting trips that they loved taking together.
Marian is survived by her son Ed (Rhonda) and daughter Patti. Ed & Rhonda’s sons Scott, Eric (Cheryl), Craig (Gerri), Miles, and Mike (fiancé Sarah) and Patti’s son Neil. She is also survived by 10 Great Grandchildren, and 6 Great-Great Grandchildren. Mom was always asking how the kids were doing, and always enjoyed when they came to visit her. She liked to be kept up to date with what each one was doing.
Marian was a stay-at-home Mom and was proud of that fact. We enjoyed that she was home for us, she was truly a great homemaker. Mom and Dad established a love for the Great Outdoors, and Hunting and Fishing were a great part of it. They decided to invest in RV-ing, and were one of the first RVers in the Tri-Cities. Many trips were taken as the kids grew up, and the RV’s kept getting bigger and bigger. That meant that the rigs to pull them got bigger, too. They enjoyed “Snow-Birding” in Quartzite, and in Mesa, Arizona. They enjoyed hunting with relatives for Elk for many years up on Bethel Ridge outside of Yakima before heading South for the Snow-Birding season.
Mom was quite the Fisherman. It was always noted that she could out-fish Dad. Her main secret for success was spraying WD-40 on her bait, and that trick was passed onto the rest of the Wierman Clan.
Mom liked to gamble and made many trips with dad, along with her sister Louise and brother-in-law Connie to Jackpot and Reno, Nevada. She was very excited when Legends Casino in Toppenish, and Wildhorse Casino in Pendleton both opened. She almost always returned home a winner. She loved those slot machines!!!!!
There will be a Celebration of Life for Mom on her 100th Birthday, June 10th, 2023. Time and location will be shared soon.
Sorry for your loss. Think of your mom and dad often.
Grandma, I am going to miss you more than words can say. It is, even at this point most difficult for me to process. That my sweet little, lovable Grandma now is no longer with us.
You now are reunited with Grandpa, more than likely out fishing him up on those heavenly waters, and not letting him forget it either.
I can just imagine, how you are now truly happy that you are reunited with Grandpa.
I will forever be grateful to you for rescuing me as a child, and being to me a surrogate Mother, even though you were Grandma, and I called you that. What you taught me as a small child I still hold dear, to this very day.
I can remember with crystal clear clarity all the time we spent together, while I lived with you, and Grandpa.
I will forever treasure, each and every memory, and moment as precious.
I am going to miss you Grandma, more than I can ever truly put into words.
Now you can rest, you had a long, and truly wonderful life. Something that you, and all of us still here in the mortal world, can be proud of.
I Love You Grandma, so very very much.
Love, Your Grandson,
