St. Mary School sends our thoughts and prayers to Mr. Wieland’s family and friends. Mr. Wieland has been a very supportive and generous friend to St. Mary School providing scholarships to many Catholic families in need. We treasure the stories he shared about how he proposed to Florence on the doorsteps of her ala mater, St. Mary School.
God Bless Mr. Wieland and all his loved ones.
Pam and John,
All of us at the Payne Firm send you our condolences, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
On behalf of the Cincinnati Alumni Chapter of Sigma Chi, please accept our condolences on the death of your loved one and our fraternal friend.
â€œHis friendship was enduring; his generosities were large; and his life was an inspiration. He loved his Fraternity; but he knew that its helpfulness and sympathies were meant to be broader than the bounds of the organization. His loyalty was grounded in the faith that fraternalism stands finally for better citizenship, for a more noble civilization, and for the higher ideals of life in its service to man and reverence to God.â€
