She was born July 6, 1935 to Letha B. (Dean) and Estel Middleton in Ironton, Ohio. She graduated from Marlboro High School and Gerber Beauty College. She worked at the Hartville Basket Factory during two summers of high school, State Service Supply Office (Alliance), Wanda’s Beauty Shop (Marlboro) and Molly Stark Hospital (Louisville) where she retired as the business office manager.

Her hobbies were crafts, sewing, and quilting, gardening, and entertaining her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She greatly enjoyed genealogy and researching her family tree which she dedicated much time to. Family gatherings and reunions were a major passion in her life and brought her much joy, laughter, and great memories. She helped to form the Marlboro Kindergarten and was a member of Marlboro Christian Church, Marlboro Alumni Association and former member of Marlington Alumni Association.  

She is preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband of 59 years and high school sweetheart, Richard L. Weast Sr. They were married on January 29, 1955; two newborn children; sisters, Jan Dluzak and Shirly Gary; and brother, Marvin Middleton.
