Dorothy Weir

November 28, 1940 ‒ December 25, 2013

Galion, Ohio

GALION: The career of motherhood and homemaking is beyond value and needs no justification. Its importance is incalculable. Dorothy Weir understood that importance, and she invested all of her time and energy in raising her daughter while she was at home.

Dorothy loved her home, and it was only appropriate that she was at home, surrounded by her loving family, following her eleven-month battle with cancer, when she went to be with the Lord early Monday morning December 23, 2013. She was 73.

Born Dorothy Doran November 28, 1940 in Galion to George & Josephine (Studer) Doran, she remained a lifelong Galion resident.

Dorothy was a lifelong member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Galion, where she served as a Lector and Lay Distributor. She volunteered with Galion Community Hospital as a member of Twig 2 and had worked with the Crawford County Board of Elections for 35 years as a poll worker.

She had worked with Woolworth Company, Perfection Steel Body Company and retired from Geyer’s SuperValue in Galion. Following her retirement, she worked part-time with Togliatti Sewing in Mansfield.

Dorothy enjoyed reading, quilting and gardening, but nothing was more important to her than her family, and loving on her five grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband Harry I. Weir, whom she married April 20, 1968; her daughter Amy (Tim) Mayer of Galion; and grandchildren Michael, Addie, Elizabeth, Grace and Emma Mayer.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Her family will receive friends Thursday, December 26, 2013 from 4 to 7:30 p.m. in Snyder Funeral Home Richardson Davis Chapel in Galion, where a vigil service will follow at 7:30 p.m. Deacon Al Sisson will lead prayers. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered Friday at 10:30 a.m. in St. Joseph Catholic Church celebrated by Father John Miller. Burial will follow in Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Galion.
