Obituary of Art Werner
Arthur “Art” Theodore Werner, 97, of Greeley passed away at his home on August 26, 2022. He was born March 16, 1925, to Solomon, Jr. and Clara Werner on the Oasis Ranch near Grover, CO.
Art attended West Pawnee, Grover and College High schools.
He served in the U.S. Army during WWII from August 1943 to October 1946.
On April 24, 1955 Art and Elaine Brown were married in Grover. Shortly after they were married, he purchased the Werner Homestead where he farmed and ranched while working campaigns at the Great Western Sugar Company. In 1961, he was hired full time and worked his way up to Sugar-end Foreman. In 1969, he fulfilled a lifelong dream of dairying. In the early 70’s he purchased a small acreage and designed and built his own dairy farm. He was proud that his hard work and effort on the dairy allowed him to send his four girls to private high school and college.
Art is a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church where he served as a deacon and was a charter member of the Windsor Elm Haven Church.
He enjoyed gardening, fishing, crossword puzzles and helping others, but the most important thing was spending time with his family.
Art is survived by his wife Elaine, four daughters; Doris Sikora, Dorothy (Ron) Simpson, Debra (Ted) Ito, Diane (Gene) Youree; five grandchildren; Amanda, Greg, Becky, Keiko and Kenta; five great-grandchildren, his brother Rueben Werner and sister Lola Nussbaum as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, Roland and Henry and his son-in-law, John Sikora.
