Obituary for Maryanna Wiensz

Maryanna Wiensz, 89, died peacefully in her home the morning of February 19, 2024. Norman Wiensz, her high school sweetheart, and husband of 71 years was by her side.

She is also survived by her 5 children, Les Wiensz of Idaho; Mark Wiensz of California; Janice Schmid of Aumsville, Oregon; Teresa Brokaw of Washington; Sandra Green of Salem, Oregon, 13 grandchildren, 28 great grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren, and 3 sisters.

Maryanna was preceded in death by her father, Theophilus “Phil” Mueller; mother, Florence Edith Murphy; brother, Phillip Gerald Mueller; sisters, Marlene McDaniel & Phyllis Mueller and grandson, Matthew Wiensz.

She was a member of the Salem First Baptist Church and was active and involved with the Monmouth Garden Club, Friendship Quilt Club, and a bridge club until her health no longer allowed her to participate.

Maryanna was known for her bright and welcoming smile and her home was always open for friends and family to gather. Her hobbies included many crafts, sewing, knitting, crocheting, gardening, preserving the harvest, and growing and arranging flowers.

She was gifted with warm hospitality and loved sharing both her knowledge and the fruits of her labor with many friends and family.

A memorial service for friends and family is planned for Saturday, March 2, 2024, at 2pm at Salem First Baptist Church.
