Why order flowers through us?

Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.

The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Obituary for Elizabeth "Betty" Weidner

As toddlers, Betty Weidner’s grandkids often cried when it was time to leave her warm, welcoming home. To ease the parting, she filled a metal box with sweets and called it “Goodbye Candy.” Her sixteen grandchildren, now in their twenties and thirties, still remember fondly that “sweet sorrow.”

Betty Jane Collett Weidner, age 88, died early Sunday morning at the home of her daughter Jane Ehrman, surrounded by her six children and many of her grandchildren. One of eight children herself, Betty put family at the heart of everything she did. “She was the first event planner I ever encountered,” said one of her daughters. “She could always find a reason to bring the family together to celebrate: birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, game nights, baptisms, patron saints days, you name it.”

Mrs. Weidner also found time to volunteer at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, at St. Pius School, and had been a Girl Scout troop leader. She was an avid card player and also enjoyed ceramics and gardening.

She was preceded in death by her husband George Weidner, former mayor of Edgewood. She leaves behind a son, Chuck (Judy) Weidner of Taylor Mill, and five daughters: Barbara Hedges and Jane (Bill) Ehrman of Park Hills, Ginny (Michael) Sandfoss of Kenton County, Mary Ann Weidner of Silver City, New Mexico, and Tina Klare of Villa Hills; 16 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren; as well as two brothers: Bob Collett of Florence and Jack Collett of Union.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, January 29, 5 until 7 pm. at Linnemann Funeral Homes, Erlanger. Mass of Christian Burial will be Wednesday, January 30 at 10:00 am at St. Pius X, Edgewood.

Memorials are suggested to organization of choice that nurtures children and families.
