Morris (“Moe”) Bernard Weiner, the son of Harry Louis Weiner and Ida Vishniskie Weiner, was born May 19, 1929 in Kankakee, IL.  He was orphaned as a young child and was raised at the Marks Nathan Jewish Children’s Home in Illinois.

     After graduating from high school, Mr. Weiner entered the Military, serving a tour of duty with the Army during the Korean Conflict.  He then served three tours during the Vietnam War.  Moe retired from the Army in 1976 (after a lifetime of service to his country) and then moved to Spencer, Iowa where he lived with his sister Rose Rabinowitz.  He later moved to Okoboji, Iowa.

     During his retirement, Moe enjoyed fishing, reading, puzzles and especially being around his family.

     He is survived by nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-grand nieces and nephews.

Private Family Graveside Services will be held.

“I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort in Jesus words at John 5:28,29. There Jesus promised a resurrection of our loved ones, saying that the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. These resurrected ones will inherit the earth, as Jesus spoke about in Matthew chapter 5. Then, under the rule of God’s Kingdom, they will enjoy life the way God originally intended, in perfect health with no sorrow, pain or death. (Psalms 37:29. Isaiah 33:24. Revelation 21:4). What a wonderful time that will be! If you would like to learn more about this hope, please visit Please accept my condolences.”

“We met Moe while he lived at Pelican Ridge in Arnolds Park. I used to work puzzles with him from time to time when we were in town and grew quite fond of him. He enjoyed his puzzles, truck, going out for meals, and sharing his life experiences (especially military service) with us.
We visited him at the assisted living and rest home regularly and will miss him and his hugs and kisses a lot. He is a true hero and patriot. Love you, Moe! RIP”

“ Always remember Moe when I was GM at Pelican Ridge. He came to the Clubhouse and worked on his puzzles. He was a very giving person who was loved by many residents of Pelican Ridge. May he rest in peace. Jack”

“We are so sad to hear about Morris. He was such a nice man. He always came into the Spencer Library when I worked there, he never forgot my name. He and Hank were both regular patrons at the Library. He used to stop and visit my husband at the National Guard Armory all the time. We always saw him at the Shine employee Christmas party. We looked forward to seeing him every year!!! We will miss him!!!
