Dorothy Clark Weller, 89

Dorothy Clark Weller, 89, of Millsboro, Del., and formerly of Jackson, N.J., passed away at her home on Oct. 6, 2018. She was born in Cassville, N.J., to the late George and Elsie Tucker Sloan on July 30, 1929.

On May 9, 1949, she was married to her husband, George H. Weller, who survives her. She retired from work with the Jackson Public School system. She was a very active person who always had to be doing something for someone else. She was a feisty woman with endless energy. She rose every day at the “crack of dawn” and went on from there! Her main passion was cooking and collecting recipes.

In addition to her husband, Weller is survived by her children, George Weller Jr. and his companion, Kate Dostey, of Jackson, N.J., Helena Weller and her husband, Robert Dochney, of Phillipsburg, N.J., Sherry Mosley and husband, David, of Jackson, N.J., and Douglas Weller and his wife, Leatta, of Azle, Texas; 14 brothers and sisters; six grandchildren, Kaitlin Mosley and her husband, Tobias Canfield, Lucas Mosley, Samantha Kliemish and her husband, Glenn, Wendy Mosley, Candace Mosley, and Corinne Dochney and her husband, Paul Zippel; two great-grandchildren, Wynn and August Canfield; several special friends, Mildred Trimmer, Bubbles and Joey Clayton, Ginny and Gary, Joanne and Greenie; and a special niece, Judy Wright of Ohio.

The family extended special thanks to VITAS Hospice, Seasons Hospice and caretakers Malissa, Jessica, Marline, Mimi and Tashanda.

A funeral service and interment were to be held Oct. 10, 2018, at Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery, officiated by the Rev. Dr. James Van Der Wall. In lieu of flowers, the family suggested memorial contributions to either the Alzheimer’s Association or any charity of the giver’s choice. Condolences may be sent online at
