Betty Jeanne Weir, “GG”,  from Cherokee, Oklahoma, left her earthly home on Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at the age of 80. Betty was born in St. Louis, Missouri on April 27, 1941 to parents, Earl Raymond Stanton and Margery Jean (Schoolcraft) Stanton.  She was the youngest of three children.

In 1958, she met and married James Murl Ivy.  To this union three children were born, Debora, Jeanne and Beverly.  She later married George William Weir in 1968 and adopted one child, Suzy. Betty was a homemaker, worked for Toot-n-Totum in Amarillo, Texas for four years, and at Sav-a-Trip, later known as Toni’s Express Stop in Cherokee, Oklahoma for approximately ten years.

Betty was an avid sports fan with the Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs being her favorite teams.  She also enjoyed playing card games and dominos, but her favorite activity was bowling, in which she earned several awards.

Betty is predeceased by her spouses, James Murl Ivy in 1964 and George William Weir in 1994; also by her beloved dogs, Droopy and Casper.
