Vivian Ann Weil

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Vivian Ann Weil (who preferred to be called Ann), the widow of Charles Gwinton Weil, died Saturday, July 15, at Morningside of Nevada Assisted Living at the age of 93. With an air of southern grace, she possessed elegance, beauty, fashion and a special allure of kindheartedness and was beloved by many and befriended many throughout her life. She was the loving rock for her husband Charles always providing a clean house, a home cooked meal and a shoulder to lean on. Ann always had a smile, a kind word of encouragement, advice, wisdom and lived by the mantra, ďIf you donít have anything kind to say, donít say anything,Ē which served her, and all those in her life well. She softened hurts, mediated quarrels and won the hearts of more than she ever realized. Ann loved the 24 years she lived in Nevada, making many good friends along the way.

Ann was the seventh of eight children, from Amory, Miss., descendants of Richard Stockton, who was among the 56 that signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Her father, William Aden (Hezzie) Stockton was a successful building contractor and enjoyed and loved his large family with his wife, Mary Ann Bucy Stockton. Annís greatest loves were family, friends, playing bridge, the Nevada Garden Club, animals of all types, roses, poppies and elegance in all things visual.

She is survived by her son Charles Gwinten Weil, Jr. and wife, Martha; daughter, Mary Ann Barnett and husband, Gary; granddaughter, Courtney; and grandson, Clayton (and their six collective great grandchildren); daughter, Cindy Jo Foursha and her husband, Sam; grandson, Andrew; and granddaughter, Leslie; son, William Stockton Weil and wife, Amy; granddaughter, Alexandria; daughter, Laura Melissa Jones and husband, Jonathan; and grandson, Robert.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Morningside of Nevada and the nurses at Heartland Hospice of Butler, for their compassion, love and kindness provided to Ann and her family.

The family is planning a celebration of Annís life later this summer for her family and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the American Cancer Society or Heartland Hospice of Butler.
