Obituary for Carol Dexter Weyer

Carol Dexter Weyer, 82, of Radford, passed away Thursday, February 18, 2021.  She had been surrounded by her family and caregivers in the final days of her life.  She was preceded in death by her parents, William Dexter and Frances Campbell Schwitchenberg; and her husband, James (Jim) F. Weyer.

Survivors include:  her son and daughter-in-law, Rodger and Lori Wills of Radford; sister, Betty Jane Morris of Dublin; and special cousin, Gail Scott of Vinton.

She graduated from Radford High School and retired from Poly Scientific in Blacksburg.  She enjoyed traveling in a motor home with her husband and Dobermans for many years and they made lots of friends throughout their travels.  She also enjoyed cooking and collected innumerable boxes of recipes over the years.  She was an avid reader of the Bible and the power of her faith was an inspiration!  She loved all animals and used to take her pet parrot everywhere with her, including physician appointments.  She had other pet birds, however, dogs were her true love.  She especially favored Pit Bulls and Dobermans and rescued several throughout her life and many became her pets.  Carol volunteered with both the Radford and Dublin Humane Society, the Kennel Club, and PAWS.  Other hobbies included:  photography and scrapbooking to which we are forever grateful.  Our best memories of/with her will not be forgotten; she left behind many photo albums and scrapbooks dating back to 1959.  Even though she is no longer here with us in the flesh, she will forever remain in our hearts and our memories.

Due to the pandemic, the family will remember Carol in a private memorial service at Highland Memory Gardens in Dublin.

In lieu of flowers, Carol had requested that contributions be made to:  The Jewish Jesus (Rabbi Schneider, PO Box 777, Blissfield, MI  49228-a Christian Organization) or the local Humane Societies.

The family would like to especially thank Dawn Whitescarver and Amy Rhodes, her caretakers and the staff at Carilion Hospital for their dedication and exceptional kindness.

The Weyer family is in the care of Mullins Funeral Home & Crematory in Radford.
