Cora Mae (Uhlenkamp) Wiener was born on Feb. 22, 1936, in Cando, North Dakota, to Carl and Alice (Quackenbush) Uhlenkamp.

She married the love of her life, Julian Louis Wiener ,on Oct. 9, 1956, in Padua.

Cora was a kind-hearted, loving wife, mother and grandmother! Children brought so much joy to her heart!

She enjoyed spending time in her kitchen cooking and baking. A lot of time the kids would get off the bus to have fresh home-made cookies or bread waiting for them.

Cora loved sewing, quilting, and embroidery. She made many quilts and embroidered dish towels for her family and had the pleasure of gifting them as well! Cora had a green thumb and loved planting her flowers and gardening. She always had a warm and welcoming home.

Julian and Cora enjoyed playing cards and polka dances. She also had a deep-rooted faith and was a member of the Christian mothers.

But most of all, Cora cherished spending time with her family, whether it was one on one or at a family gathering.
