Obituary

Arminta “Minnie” Sinclair Weidner passed away on Saturday, June 1, 2019, from complications from cancer. Minnie was born Sept. 30, 1934, in a log house, eight miles from Weippe at Petersons Corner, to Chester Sinclair and Alberta Congelton Sinclair. She had two siblings, Wesley Sinclair and Ardella Sinclair Rodgers.

When she was 6 years old, her family moved to Weippe for school. Minnie married Dean Weidner on Dec. 22, 1950. Together they built their home on Grasshopper Creek in Weippe. After 43 years of marriage, Dean passed away. Later, Minnie met her companion and partner of 13 years, Vern Huddleston.

Minnie worked for Aitco Sanitation for 37 years, seven seasons planting trees for the Forest Service, Community Action Agency winterization crew and tended bar at three different bars in Weippe.

Minnie enjoyed raising a large vegetable garden and beautiful flower gardens. She also enjoyed crocheting in her free time, which she also taught her grandchildren.

Minnie and Dean had two daughters, Connie (Ray) Mendenhall of Weippe and Cindy Boren (Bronson Roberts) of Spalding; four grandchildren, Monte (Sara) Walsh, Rachael Mendenhall, Brandon Ladd (Kim Williams Jr.) and Mark Weidner McIntosh; 10 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren.

Preceding her in death was her husband of 43 years, Dean Weidner; her parents, Chester Sinclair and Alberta Sinclair Hall (Emil Hall); brother Wesley Sinclair; sister Ardella Sinclair; nephew Vernie Sinclair; great-granddaughter Katty Walsh; and companion Vern Huddleston.

Please make donations to your favorite charity, as Minnie requested.

A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. June 22, 2019, at Rebekha Lodge in Weippe. The family will provide the meat for the covered-dish dinner; please bring your favorite dish to share.
