Glee LoAnn Stevens was born February 16, 1930 in Long Prairie, Minnesota, the daughter of Lyle and Merry (DuFrene) Stevens. Glee grew up in the Little Sauk area and graduated from Long Prairie High School. She was united in marriage to Arthur Theodore "Bud" Weiner on May 13, 1949 in Thomasville, Georgia. From this union, five children were born. Glee and Bud spent nearly 30 years delivering the Minneapolis Star & Tribune each afternoon in Sauk Centre and surrounding towns.

Glee was a very gifted woman. She loved music and became an accomplished pianist perfecting 3000 songs without ever reading a note of music. Creative seemed to describe Glee - from artistic painting, doing intricate needlework, to decorating, she seemed to have a special knack. She also enjoyed writing and especially loved to create meaningful poetry. Song birds, hummingbirds, and butterflies were fascinating to Glee. One winter she had a hummingbird live in her home with her. She had an extreme love for nature and especially enjoyed collecting beautiful autumn leaves and pressing them between pages in her books. Glee was constantly learning and memorizing. She had a passion for reading her Bible and writing each chapter out in her own handwriting. Another passion was the study of words and meanings.

She recently became a member of Zion Lutheran Church and always appreciated Pastor Porter's visits while she lived in the nursing home.

Survivors include her children, Cheryl (Alan) Pastian of Sauk Centre, Dennis Weiner of Grey Eagle, Kenneth (Jennifer) Weiner of Indianapolis, IN, Sharon Stevens of St. Cloud, and Steven (Melissa) Weiner of Hot Springs, AR; grandchildren, Alan Pastian, Brian Pastian, Shawneen Frieson, Holly Haverkost, Allison Weiner, Jessica Schramel and Kristin Fiedler; eleven great grandchildren; one brother, Lorel Stevens; other relatives and many friends.

Glee was preceded in death by her husband, Arther "Bud" Weiner on August 31, 1983; and two brothers, Wendelle Stevens and Llewellyn Stevens.
