Joyce L. Weir, age 81, of Mt. Sterling, went home to be with her Lord on Dec. 5, 2015. It was with great sadness, but her family was by her side.
Joyce was the loving and caring matriarch of our family for the last 15 years of her life. She was born May 13, 1934, in Milledgeville, Fayette County, Ohio.
She was preceded in death by her father, the Rev. Donald Carter; her mother, Maxine; her brother Steve Carter; and nephew, Mike Haller.
She is survived by her son, Tim; sister, Carol (John) Haller of Mt. Sterling; brothers, Don (Ann) Carter of VanWert and Mike (Sharon) Carter of London; sister-in-law, Debbie Carter, also of London; and several nieces and nephews.
Joyce was the former mayor of Mt. Sterling. She was the pianist for the Church of Christ In Christian Union in Mt. Sterling. She really loved her church family. The family would like to thank the Church and all the neighbors for their thoughts and prayers, and also for all the food extended to the family. What a wonderful town Mt. Sterling is in a time of need!
