Shirley L. Weed

June 04, 1931 ‒ January 13, 2006

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Shirley L. Weed, 74, of Straub Road, Mansfield, died Friday, January 13, 2006 in MedCentral Mansfield Hospital following a long illness.

Shirley was born June 4, 1931 in Mount Vernon to Cecil and Geneva (Barnes) Reep and moved to Mansfield when she was a teenager. She was graduated from Mansfield Senior High School with the class of 1949.

On September 20, 1951, Shirley married her devoted husband Carl E. Weed. A loving wife and mother, she devoted her time and energy into creating a loving home for their children, volunteering in all aspects of her kid’s lives while they were in school.

While her children were young, Shirley loved bowling and taught junior bowling in the Richland County area. She bowled in several leagues in town and was voted President of the Mansfield Women’s Bowling Association in 1965, keeping that position for ten years. She was also made an Honorary Lifetime Member of the Women’s Association.

After she became ill, Shirley’s greatest pride (after her children and grandchildren) was her home and flower gardens, and having her home picked for the Parade of Homes due to all the beautiful gardens she created and Carl planted.

Shirley was a caring and loving person who enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She demonstrated remarkable strength and courage throughout her life and illness.

She will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her loving husband of 54 years Carl, their children Timothy A. Weed of Athens, Michael J. and Wanza Weed of Lexington and Pam S. and Kurt Armstrong of Crestline; six grandchildren Adam and Andrew Weed, Kevin and Chris Weed and Kyle and Ryan Armstrong; a sister and brother-in-law Sally J. and Richard Marshall of Colorado; a special son Antonio Costa of Brazil; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends Sunday, January 15, 2006 from 2 – 5 pm in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where a memorial service will be held at 5 pm. The Rev. Timothy M. Storms will officiate.

Memorial contributions to MedCentral Hospice may be made at the funeral home.
