Orrville — Jacqueline D. Weeman entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, June 24, 2020, at the age of 83. She was born on January 2, 1937, in Canton, OH. She was the daughter of the late Harold and Irene (Brankel) Kelly of Canton and was united in marriage to Roy D. Weeman on September 16, 1955 in Las Cruces, NM, where Roy was stationed in the Army.

On returning to Ohio, Jackie and Roy resumed dairy farming at the home farm in Orrville. Roy semi-retired in 1988. All six of their children were raised there and learned the value and joy of hard work.
Jackie first and foremost was a homemaker. She thoroughly enjoyed raising their growing family. Her relationship with Christ was always utmost in her mind and her home church in Ohio was Orrville Christian Church. She enjoyed attending family and sporting events, band shows, plays, etc. She loved to dance, play cards, and golf. Her family will enjoy her oil paintings for many years. Jackie and Roy traveled extensively after semi-retiring. They visited all 50 states and at least a dozen other countries in their travels. Winters were spent in their home in Bonita Springs, FL, the past 30 years, where they attended Anchor Christian Church, and was a popular destination for their family and friends.
