He was the son of Zeno Weiss and Esther (?).
Death3 March 2011Melvin J. Weiss died on 3 March 2011 at Arizona at age 79 We say goodbye to Melvin J. Weiss, just shy of 80, as he passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, in the company of his beloved wife, Ione, on Thursday, March 3, 2011, in Arizona. Melvin was born on March 29, 1931, in Plain, the son of Zeno and Esther Weiss. Mel was a United States Navy Veteran having proudly served his country from 1955 through 1957. He was a happy farmer in Plain until 1973. Mel treasured the land he worked and was glad to go to work each day. Once a farmer, always a farmer, he would say. He then moved to Cross Plains, where he worked at Zander's Creamery for more than 25 years. He loved his job there and everyone he met. He was united in marriage to the love of his life, Ione on July 31, 1976, and they shared 34 wonderful years together. He always took time to enjoy his love of golf, gardening and his family. After retirement, he continued to enjoy life to its fullest. He and Ione spent the next 18 years as Arizona snow birds where they decided to make it their "home away from home" on a permanent basis. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and had belonged to The Springs Golf Club for many years as well as a member of Eagles and American Legion in Lake Havasu. Melvin is survived by his soul mate and wife, Ione; daughter, Denise (Jeff) Zwettler; grandsons, Evan and Tyler; sister, Mary Feiner; and sister-in-law, Mickie (Bernard) Weiss; and two other special women in his life, Jane (Alan) Schoepp and Lyn (Greg) Coehnen plus many nieces, nephews, other relatives and countless friends. We will say farewell to our very kind, gentle soul with a Mass of Christian Burial at ST. FRANCIS XAVIER CATHOLIC CHURCH, 2947 Thinnes Street, Cross Plains, at 11 a.m. on Monday, March 14, 2011, with Father Thomas Kelley presiding. Visitation will be on Monday from 9 a.m. until the time of the service at the church. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the American Heart Association or American Diabetes Association.
