Patricia Ann Weegar

Patricia Ann Echard Weegar, aged 79, passed away on Tuesday, May 14, 2024.  She was a beloved mother, wife and friend to many and will be deeply missed.


Pat was born on May 26 in Charlottesville, Virginia. As a young child, she moved to Norfolk, Virginia, where she spent the remainder of her youth. She had fond memories of her teenage years on the beach with all of her friends. She went on to attend Brigham Young University-Provo. After a year at BYU, Pat came home and met Eric Adams, whom she later married.  They moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan and had 3 children together, Carrie, Mike and Alison. After parting ways with Eric, Pat met George Weegar at church a short time later. They soon married and he and his 3 children, Ken, Ralph and Dayle, joined Pat and her 3 children to make a family of 8. A few years later, Pat and George added 2 more children, Darlene and Gina, and then the family was complete.


In 1981, George’s job transferred the family to Chesterfield, Virginia where they lived for 34 years. In Virginia, Pat finished her schooling at Virginia Commonwealth University where she majored in Business Information Systems. She was known for being a hard worker who used simple examples to explain complicated problems to anyone who needed her help.


Pat was an active, lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  She served in many capacities but her love was working with the youth. She lovingly recounted stories of calming unruly classrooms of older children and teens that other adults avoided. It gave her joy to help and love those kids. From 1999 to 2001, George and Pat served as missionaries in the California Ventura Mission. She loved the people, the missionaries, the work and the flowers she grew in California.


More than anything, Pat was a deeply devoted mother. She dedicated the majority of her life to raising, befriending, supporting and loving her children. She spent countless hours teaching, listening, caring for and supporting her children and grandchildren.


Pat was also deeply devoted to her friendships all over the country. She loved people and was always happy to talk. Her sincere interest in the lives of others will be missed by friends and family alike.


In her free time, Pat enjoyed gardening and being outdoors. She would choose puttering in her garden over any other hobby. She always said that, if given the choice of jobs in Heaven, she wants to work in the gardens.  


In addition to gardening, Pat loved to travel. Over her lifetime, she visited most of the states in the United States and various countries on 6 different continents. She planned the majority of every trip and was always the designated navigator.


Pat is survived by her husband, George, their 8 children and spouses, 19 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. She is also survived by brothers David, Robert (Beth) and Michael Echard, sister Bonnie Echard and many nieces and nephews.


A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 25, 2024 at 3:00pm CT at the Austin Texas Oak Hill Stake Center, 5201 Convict Hill Rd in Austin, with a livestream being broadcast to those who would like to join remotely.  https://zoom.us/j/93132065741
