Mrs. Weir was a Bookkeeper for Kellwood Company, a textile manufacturer that was located in Perry for many years, and she helped her husband with the family business, D & D Bull Motel, an artificial insimination business for cattle.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her loving and devoted husband, Richard "Dick" Weir.

I want to offer my condolences to the family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a loved one in death, regardless of how long they have lived. Even Jesus gave way to tears when his friend Lazarus died (John 11:35). Our heavenly Father of tender mercies knows your pain. He never purposed his human family to have health issues, grow old, and die, but to live in perfect health and life forever. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy and promised to remove sickness, old age, and death__ 1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing"; Isaiah 33:24 And no resident will say: "I am sick"; Isaiah 35:5,6; Job 33:24,25 “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.” Finally, He promised to undo the effect of death by bringing our loved ones in the memorial tombs back to life__ Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will rise...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” God gives us this beautiful hope that he will soon resurrect our dead loved ones and we can see them again on a paradise earth. I hope these words give you all comfort. If you’d like to learn more about this hope, feel free to visit
