Obituary for Stella A. Weinheimer

Stella Weinheimer (born Petranek) died on August 10, 2019 in Lewistown, MT.  She died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 97.  Mrs. Weinheimer was born on January 25, 1922 in Fergus, MT to her parents, Charles and Margaret.  She attended elementary school in Fergus and high school in Lewistown.  She and her husband, Ervin Weinheimer, rented several ranches prior to buying a ranch near Warm Spring Creek, MT in 1948 where they raised grain and cattle.  The Warm Spring Creek ranch was the place she had been happiest in her life. She continued to farm until her death.   

Among her many loves and talents, she was a fabulous cook.  She set the standard that everyone else's cooking was compared to in her family, as well as growing fruits, vegetables and flowers in her garden.  She was an avid seamstress to the end.  Her fondness of animals was apparent in her raising of an orphan calf named Annie.  She will be remembered for her kindness, generosity as well as a playful streak.   

Mrs. Weinheimer is survived by her five children: Charlene Fuglestad, Betty Schmidt, David Weinheimer, Eric Weinheimer and Diane W Gilmore; her four grandchildren: Lee and Brian Fuglestad and Shawn and Jason Schmidt; and her three great-grandchildren: Megan and Ethan Fuglestad and Rainy Branstetter.  She is preceded in death by her husband, Ervin; and her brothers, George and Charles Petranek.  

Viewing for Mrs. Weinheimer will take place at Creel Funeral Home in Lewistown on Friday, August 16th, 12:00 to 5:30 p.m.  A Vigil service will follow at St. Leo’s Catholic Church at 7:00 p.m. on Friday.  Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Leo’s on Saturday, August 17th, 10:30 a.m. with Rite of Committal to follow at Mount Calvary Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to CMMC Hospice.  

Arrangements are under the care of Creel Funeral Home.  Stella’s family and friends are welcome to share memories and condolences at www.creelfuneralhome.com
