Pauline Weir Obituary

Pauline Cecilia Weir of Dallas, Texas, formerly of Pittsfield, Illinois, died on Sunday, October 29, 2023, at Sunrise Senior Living in Dallas, Texas.

Mrs. Weir was born February 14, 1936, in Kirksville, Missouri to Michael William and Anna Theresa (Whalen) Kinney.

Soon after graduating from Quincy College with a BS in Education in 1957, Pauline married Richard G. Weir on June 8, 1957, in Quincy, Ill. He survives.

Other survivors include three daughters and two sons: Paula Trimble (Joe) of Austin, Texas; Kathy Hyde (Jeff) of Dallas, Texas; Dian Holson (Brian) of Katy, Texas; Joe Weir (Domenica) of Houston, Texas, and David Weir (Jennifer) of Plano, Texas.   Mrs. Weir has 15 grandchildren and 9 (and soon to be 10) great grandchildren. Also surviving are many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. 

Mrs. Weir was preceded in death by her parents and six brothers and two sisters, Paul Kinney, Father Thomas Kinney, Joseph Kinney, Mary Maupin, Bill Kinney, Ambrose Kinney, John Kinney, and Anna Buckman.

Mrs. Weir was a retired schoolteacher and bank teller. She was a former member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Pittsfield where she was an active member of the Altar Society.

She was a long-time member of Old Orchard Country Club, an avid golfer frequently outdriving her husband. Mrs. Weir loved to spend time with her family and grandchildren. She would always make sure they were well fed by lovingly making them her famous fried chicken, chocolate cake, and chocolate chip cookies. She loved gardening and was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan.

A Mass of Christian burial will be at a later date.

The family requests that memorial contributions be made to the St. Mary’s Altar Society.
