Myra Oleta (Ennis) Wierman, 94, of Cassville, Missouri, went home to be with the Lord on July 28, 2010. She was born June 20, 1916, the seventh of eight daughters born to Martie and Minnie (Beeson) Ennis. She was born and raised in the Oak Ridge community near Cassville, and received her education at the Oak Ridge School. On December 31, 1934, she was united in marriage to Ora L. (Dick) Wierman. They spent the next 70 years together until his death on January 13, 2005. To this union, five children were born.
Surviving children are: Richard Wierman and his wife, Darlene, of Purdy, Missouri, Dona Osban and her husband, Jon, of Twin Falls, Idaho, Max Wierman of Seymour, Missouri, and Vickie Hilton and her husband, Gene, of Camdenton, Missouri. Also surviving are ten grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren, nine great-great grandchildren; a sister, Ruby Kinser, many nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends.
Preceding her in death, in addition to her husband, were one son, Sydney Wierman, two daughters-in-law, Grace Wierman and Kathy Wierman, one granddaughter, Susie Glasgow, one great-grandson, Jason Crim, her parents, and six sisters, Vicey Brooks, Elma Bishop, Esther Bowers, Lora Hammond, Gracie Elliott and Thelma Weaver.
Myra made her confession of faith as a teenager and was a faithful member of Union Chapel Church for more than sixty years. She studied her Bible daily and always looked forward to going to church until her health prevented her from attending.
She was a wonderful mother and a beloved grandmother. She loved her family unconditionally and always looked forward to seeing and holding the new babies. She loved being outdoors and always looked forward to spring when she could plant her vegetable garden, tend to her many flowers and watch the baby farm animals. She also enjoyed making hand-pieced and hand-quilted quilts.
Myra had a heart for children, especially those who were sick and hurting. Memorial contributions may be made to one of her favorite charities, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Funeral services were held at 10 a.m., Monday, August 2, 2010, in Fohn Funeral Home, Cassville, Missouri. Rev. Jerry Nickle and Rev. Steve Wierman will conduct the services. Burial was at Mineral Springs Cemetery. Paid
