Jackie was a life-long member of St. James Episcopal Church, now The Episcopal Church of Saints James and Andrew. She was an active member of the church community over the years as part of the Episcopal Church Women, the Alter Guild and a volunteer at the annual church fair. Jackie loved her church and the church family.

Weir and his wife Jamie of Archdale, NC, a sister Sheila Graves of Greenfield, two grandsons, a granddaughter, eight great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband Larry, Jackie was tragically predeceased by her grandson Nicholas “Nick” Weir this past summer.
Jackie’s family wishes to gratefully acknowledge the nurses and staff at the Buckley Health Care Center. From the moment she arrived into their care, Jackie felt welcomed to a new home with all the care, compassion and laughter one could wish for. Her family is truly thankful and most appreciative.
