Darrel R. Wejner, 64, Spencer, passed away peacefully in his home on Sunday, July 28, 2019.
Per Darrel’s wishes, the family will not be having a public service, but will be scattering his ashes at a later date.
Darrel was born on Aug. 6, 1954, in Chicago, Ill., the son of Ray Wejner and Darlene (nee Steidle) Straman. He graduated from Cameron Elementary School in Chicago and attended Ore High School. Darrel worked in the warehouse at Bantam Books in Des Plaines, Ill., for 20 years, as well as Fleming Company in Marshfield, and he most recently worked as a custodian at Spencer School District. He was united at heart to Rosalie Auman, his life partner of 33 years. His greatest enjoyment was “railroading,” as he had an extreme love of anything about trains. He used to go with his dad to see many different types of trains and knew how they all worked like the back of his hand. He was also a keen fisherman, enjoyed photography and videography, loved to read all newspapers and magazines, was a kind spirit, and loved to enjoy good conversation with family and friends.
Darrel is survived by his life partner, Rosalie Auman of Spencer; his siblings, Linda “Sis” Cinelli of McHenry, Ill., and Craig (Angela) Wejner of Oswego, Ill.; his nieces and nephews: Jason Jensen, Suzanne Jensen-Aschenbrener, Sherri (James) Dalgaard, Alexandra Wejner and Amanda Wejner; many great-nieces and -nephews; and his brothers- and sisters-in-heart: Mary Ann Lesar of Loyal, Bernice LaMarr of Neillsville, Nancy Auman of Racine, Jerry (Marilyn) Auman of Willard, Linda (Denny Schumacher) Villapando of Spencer, Elaine (Bob) Langreck of Spencer, Angie (Sam Landers) Auman of Waukesha, Debbie Auman of Genesee, and David Auman of Willard.
He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents; his father, Ray; his father’s lady friend, Wilma Morris; his mother, Darlene; his stepfather, Dave Straman; many aunts and uncles; a brother-in-law, Mike Cinelli; a cousin, Sandy Nunoz; and a brother-in-heart, Bob Auman.
A special thank you goes out to everyone who stopped in to visit him and gave him cards and condolences.
Our deepest gratitude to the staff at Ministry Home Care Hospice, especially Wanda and Donna Z., for being there for Darrel in his final days.
