Jean Bagley Weatherly, a lifelong resident of Anniston, passed away at her home on March 2, 2016 after a long battle with cancer. She was preceded in death by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Lochlin Bagley (Cora Lee Harris). She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Miller Sproull Weatherly; her daughters, Virginia (Gina) and Julian (Steve) Stephens III, of Anniston and Charlotte and John Wessel, of Huntsville and her three grandchildren, Miller Wesley Stephens, Virginia Lochlin Wessel and Frederick Miller Wessel. She is also survived by her sister, Charlotte (Bet) Watson and her husband, Raymond, of Huntsville. Jean graduated from Anniston High School in 1955 and attended The University of Alabama where she was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity. She was very active in the Anniston community as a volunteer. As a former member of First Presbyterian Church, she served as President of the Presbyterian Women for many years. She taught Junior High Sunday School and also the Margaret Hodges Women's Class. As part of her lifelong love of flowers and flower arranging, she founded and served as First Presbyterian Church's Flower Guild chair for over 20 years. Later, Jean joined First United Methodist Church and was a member of Prayer Warriors and served Meals of Mercy each week. She was a member of the Tuesday Bible Study Group, which she loved dearly. Jean was a member of the board of The Episcopal Day School (later named The Donoho School Lower School), a board member of Stringfellow Memorial Hospital and served on the Stringfellow Hospital Foundation Board. She also served on the board of The Community Foundation. She served as President of the Revelers Krewe, was a member of Maskers Club, the Women's Golf Association and a past president of the Parnassus Study Club. Jean and a group of local women started the Christmas Community Clearing House in 1959. It remained one of her favorite charities. "Jean Jean," as her grandchildren lovingly referred to her, was loved by many. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She had a great sense of humor, an incredible faith and a love for all things light blue and dark blue. She developed a love of painting. She loved this hobby and her artwork is scattered among friends and family. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 and she fought her fight with an incredible sense of courage and bravery. She was a true lady in every sense of the word and will be missed by all. A memorial service will be held at First United Methodist Church 1400 Noble Street, Anniston, Alabama 36201 on Saturday, March 5, 2016, at 2 p.m. with visitation starting at 1 p.m. at the church.
