Verner Fredrick Weinreich Obituary

Verner Fredrick Weinreich, passed away peacefully on May 12, 2017, in Yuba City, California. His niece Patricia Ediger was by his side.

Verner was born on February 14, 1923, in Bemidji, Minnesota, to parents William Albert and Marie Weinreich. He was the youngest of his four brothers, Carl, Bill, Al, Herman (all previously deceased) and had one younger sister Marian Hansen (Andy).

Verner's family moved to a farm in North Dakota while he was quite young, later moving to California, where Verner graduated from Greenville High School in 1942. There he met the love of his life, Irene Largent, and they were very happily married for seventy-one years. During his time in high school, and shortly afterwards, he worked in the woods in the lumber industry.

Verner was a Veteran of World War II, serving time in the Middle East and Turkey, while in the US Army Signal Corps. In his later years he told many stories of his time serving. Following his time in the Service he attended Barber School in Sacramento and then opened his barbershop in Greenville. He was a "people person" and enjoyed visiting with his many friends while cutting their hair. He enjoyed the outdoors and hunting and fishing with relatives and friends alike.

Verner and Irene later moved to Yuba City, where they lived for over forty years and were very active in the Peachtree Church of Christ. During these years he barbered for a number of years in addition to working in a local lumber company.

Verner was predeceased by his wife Irene, their daughter Claudia Weinreich Blake, his parents and his brothers. He leaves his grandsons John, Tom and Brian Blake, and his son-in-law Tom Blake, along with a number of nieces and nephews, as well as long time fiends and neighbors, Jerry and Diane Lebaw.

Verner was a loving and active person who always made friends easily, and family was very important to him. He took complete care of his wife, who died from Alzheimers, and then he lived independently until a fall eight months ago. He will be missed by many.

Contributions may be made to a in lieu of flowers. A memorial service at Glenn Oaks Memorial Park, Chico, CA, will be held at 12:00 noon on June 5, 2017. Holycross Memorial Services, Yuba City are handling the arrangements.
