Lenore I. Weisner
Lenore I. Weisner, 76, of Newport, Ore., died Oct. 25, 2012 in Corvallis, Ore.

She was born to Hal Henderson and Marjorie (Riddle) Henderson in Calgary Alberta on Oct. 5, 1936, the oldest of five children. The family moved to Albany, Ore. in 1949, where she met Stephen Cordell Weisner. They were married on July 2, 1955 in North Bonneville, Wash.

The couple lived in Corvallis, and on Dec. 15, 1967, she lost her husband, Steve, to an automobile accident. Lenore was left to raise their two young children, Steven, 11, and Michael, 7, on her own. Lenore moved to Albany and went to work in the seed industry and did, by most accounts, an amazing job raising both her boys.

In 1978, following her youngest son Michaelís graduation from high school and seeking an adventure, she moved to Seattle. She began work at Plum Creek Timber and later at the Boeing Company, where she retired in 1995.

Lenore always loved the Oregon coast, and upon her retirement, she moved to Waldport, where she lived a few doors down from her best friend and sister-in-law Delores Hutchins. She enjoyed her church, traveling, reading and spending time with her grandchildren, family and many friends.

In the final three years of her life, Lenore moved into Oceanview Senior Living in Newport, Ore. She loved every minute of her time with her friends and dedicated staff at Oceanview.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Hal and Marjorie Henderson; husband, Steve; brother, Donald Henderson; sister-in-law, Delores Hutchins; and nephew David Sims.

She is survived by her sons, Steven (Sharon) Weisner of Albany, Michael (Michele) Weisner of Bainbridge Island, Wash.; brother, David (Aldona) Henderson of Ontario Canada; sisters, Diane (Lee) Sims of Albany and Susan (Joe) Copple of Sweet Home; grandchildren, Michael Parks, Steven Weisner and Jessica (Jesse) Weisner, all of Albany, and Casey Weisner and Dain Weisner of Bainbridge Island, Wash.; one great-grandson; seven nephews; and two nieces.

A graveside service will be at 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16, at Oakville Cemetery. A memorial service will directly follow at 2 p.m. at Good Samaritan Episcopal Church in Corvallis. Friends and family are encouraged to donate to the American Red Cross relief effort.

McHenry Funeral Home in Corvallis is handling arrangements.
