GALENA–Tom Wienen, 69, passed away peacefully at home in the early morning hours of Feb. 26, 2021, after a two-and-a-half year battle with pancreatic cancer, a battle against a cruel and unfair opponent that gave days of hope and weeks of heartache.
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, a drive-through gathering for Tom will be held March 2 at the Furlong Funeral Chapel. A private funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, March 3 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Galena. Burial will be in Prospect Hill Cemetery, rural Galena.
In place of flowers, any memorials given will be put toward a scholarship for a Galena High School senior interested in going to a trade school or starting a business.
