Taylor Ann Wieland, age 17, of Le Center, died tragically in a car accident on Saturday, September 3, 2016, while on her way to work at the Renaissance Festival in Shakopee.  Taylor was born on February 5, 1999 in Shakopee, MN to Ronnie M. and Wendy R. (Diethelm) Wieland.  She attended New Prague Public Schools and was currently a senior.

Taylor was a free-flowing, artistic young woman, who loved dancing and singing  to any kind of music.  She expressed her individuality through coloring her hair in numerous bright colors, with her most recent plan to go fire-engine red!  She enjoyed drawing and adult coloring books.  Her favorite pastime, however, was spending time with her friends and family.

Taylor is survived by her parents, Ronnie & Wendy Wieland of Le Center; brothers, Martin (Jenna) Wieland and Philip (Molly) Wieland, both of Le Center; nieces & nephews, Hunter, Jordynn, KyleeAnn, Thomas, Ronnie; grandparents, Joyce & Jim Todd of Arlington, Charles & Norma Diethelm of Effie; special friend, Shawn Warner of Chaska.  She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Martin & Adeline Wieland.

A memorial service will be held Thursday, September 8, 2016, at 7:30 PM at Bruzek Funeral Home with Father David Barrett officiating.  The visitation will take place starting at 4:00 PM until service time.
