Florence Maria Weiman
October 7, 1925 – January 10, 2019
Florence Maria (nee Honish) Weiman of Bruno, SK, passed away on Thursday, January 10, 2019, at Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon, SK. She was 93 years of age. Florence was born on October 7, 1925, to Anton and Pauline (nee Roth) Honish in Bruno. They lived in the Bruno area until around 1932 when they traveled to Goodsoil, SK, and took up a homestead. Florence attended Waterhen School and Goodsoil School until Grade 7. When she was about 15, she worked outside the home on a number of farms, where she milked cows, cooked, cleaned, washed clothes by hand, tended children, worked in the garden, and did other household duties. Florence married Anton “Tony” Weiman on June 3, 1947. They lived on John Sr. and Annie (nee Meier) Weiman’s homestead for seven years. Then, with their three young boys, Tony and Florence loaded the hayrack with their possessions and drove the horses about two miles northwest to start their own farm. The family cleared bush and established a farmyard, which Florence, Tony, and their seven children, Larry, Ken, Harold, Helen, Eileen, Sharon, and Jane called home. For many decades, milking cows and getting cream cheques allowed Florence to buy the family’s groceries and a few other necessities. During her life, Florence enjoyed playing cards, making quilts, and visiting with friends. She was a good sewer and seemed to be able to do magic with her paddle sewing machine. As well, Florence was a great cook; no one left her kitchen hungry. She always maintained a big garden and preserved many kinds of foods. Florence loved music and spent many evenings listening to the radio. She was an extremely kind, caring woman who gave selflessly to others, always putting their interests above her own. Florence will be loving remembered by her seven children, 12 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren: Larry (Janet) Weiman of Bruno and family, Robert (Laurie) Weiman and children Nathan and Olivia, Ryan Weiman (Amy Kresowaty) and children Jessica and Alyssa, Janelle (Robert) Lawrence and children Colten, Levi, and Skylar, and Michael (Regan) Weiman; Ken (Melva) Weiman of Bruno and family, Jamie (John) White and children Kennedy, Tory, and Ryden, and Blaine (Lisa) Weiman and children Austin, Logan, and Deakyn; Harold Weiman of Bruno and family, Lori (Aaron) Crowe and daughter Chantel, Amy Weiman, and Karen Weiman (special friend Bill); Helen Kachur of Saskatoon and family, Jason (Kristine) Kachur and daughters Addison and Londyn, and Chantel (Nathan) Holinaty and daughters Ava and Annika; Eileen (Robert) Carlson of Saskatoon; Sharon (Lorne) Kachur of Marshall, SK; and Jane (Anthony) Preston of Charlottetown, PEI, and son Zachary. Florence is survived by four step-brothers and three step-sisters: Clarence Honish of Peerless; Connie (Mary) Honish of Prince Albert; Joseph (Delores) Honish of Edmonton, Josephine Treptow of Meadow Lake, Delores (George) Hoffer of Peerless, Eugene Honish of Edmonton, and Kenneth (Lydia) Honish of Saskatoon; and by numerous nieces and nephews.
