Obituary of Jerome John Weiland

Jerome Weiland

March 11, 1944 – December 18, 2021

 

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our loving husband, father, and grandfather Jerome Weiland at the age of 77 years.

Jerome was the eldest of five born to John and Bertha Weiland of Lake Lenore, SK where he grew up on the family farm. In 1964 his family moved to Medstead to manage the hotel. Jerome met Vivian in Medstead and they were married in 1969. They made Saskatoon their home where Clinton and Renee were born.  Jerome worked in shipping and receiving for Eaton’s Warehouse on Quebec Avenue.

In 1978, Jerome and Vivian set their roots in Spiritwood and would go on to spend most of their 52 years in the area. Jerome worked with the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool in both Bapaume and Spiritwood. In addition, he spent many hours at our farm working and farming with his in-laws. Upon the closure of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool in 2000, Jerome transitioned to Fast Genetics where he worked with his favorite animals. In 2006, Jerome and Vivian moved to Shell Lake and in 2015 he retired at the age of 72.  

Jerome was a devoted Christian; guided by his strong faith and values. He always put others before himself. His kindness and empathy were evident in his everyday interactions. Jerome was an active member of the Sacred Heart Parish, Knights of Columbus, the Catholic School Board of Trustees, and later Prairie Community Endeavors.  

Family traditions of making sausage and homemade ice cream, skating in the backyard, watching home movies, games of bingo, shuffleboard, and last tag will remain cherished memories. He loved spending time at the cabin where you would often see him cruising the lake in his little yellow speedboat.    

Jerome truly was one of a kind and he touched the hearts of many. He had the most gentle demeanor and a heart of gold. He was known for his quirky sense of humor, infamous one-liners, and the mischievous twinkle in his eye. The following quote was special to him. “The most satisfying thing in life is to have been able to give a large part of oneself to others.” This is how he lived his life every day.  

Jerome will be fondly remembered and forever missed by his wife, Vivian Weiland, his children and their families, Clint (Tricia) Weiland of Saskatoon (Avery, Evan), and Renee (Ron) Gilchrist of Bermuda (Jack, Charleigh), his siblings, Mike Weiland of Warman, Matt Weiland, and Mary Lou Weiland both of Saskatoon, and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.   

Jerome was predeceased by his parents, John and Bertha Weiland; his sister, Glorianne Schulkowsky; his father and mother-in-law Philip and Anne Volk; and his brother-in-law, Bill Kraus.
