Lee Wieland

February 11, 1929 - July 28, 2012


Lee Wieland passed away on Saturday, July 28, 2012. He was 83, born February 11, 1929 in Bellingham, WA to Charles and Clarissa (Jones) Wieland.

Lee was raised in Birch Bay, and attended school in Blaine. He married Olive Smith on February 17, 1950. Together they raised 4 children.

Lee had a big heart that reached out to help people. In the early sixties, when his friend was killed in a construction accident, he worked to bring in the crops for the widow. With his customers, the act of helping them was more important than the payment.

When his wife of fifty years became ill, he cared for her in their home, comforting and loving her with his whole heart. Recognized by striped bib overalls and an infectious smile, Lee will be missed around the front counters of the service stations that he worked on, and at the coffee shops with his lifelong friends.

Lee was preceded in death by his wife Olive in 2002.

He is survived by his children, Janet Kahn, Howard Wieland, Ralph Wieland, Ardie Ogden; 7 grandchildren; and 6 great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Whatcom Hospice, 2901 Squalicum Pkwy, Bellingham, WA 98225.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 4, at 11 AM, at Laurel Baptist Church, 162 W. Laurel Road in Bellingham.

  1. Thanks for the memories

  2. Meeting Lee and his lovely wife in their home in Bellingham left a lingering example of love and hospitality within. Watching him walk his granddaughter, Jennifer, down the isle with a twinkle in his eye and that sly grin on his face will always remind me that I have met a great man. May God continue to bless his family with the knowledge that he has been reunited with the love of his life.

    May I offer my sympathy in your painful loss. He will be sorely missed by all who knew & loved him. Please take comfort & hope in the following Rev21:4-5 “AND HE WILL WIPE OUT EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES & DEATH WILL BE NO MORE.”
