Reba Joyce Weesner went to her heavenly home on Saturday afternoon, June 25, 2022. She was born in Freestone, Texas on July 17, 1932 and was raised in Cotton Gin, Texas by her loving aunt and uncle, J.C. and Mae Boyd. Reba spent her childhood and early adult life in Freestone and Limestone Counties. After graduating from Teague High School she obtained her LVN and worked in Mexia, Texas for a family doctor and at the local hospital. While living in Mexia Reba met her future husband, Mason Weesner. They married January 23, 1960 and shortly after moved to Tenaha, Texas where she supported Mason's banking career as she lovingly raised her family. She loved the town and the people who lived there. Entertaining family and friends in her home brought joy to Reba's life. Her home was always open as she volunteered for wedding showers, bank functions, and other gatherings. After 35 years of marriage, Mason passed away and Reba spent the next 25 years working at Citizens State Bank in Tenaha. She was a devoted member of Tenaha Church of Christ where she spent many years teaching children's Sunday School.
Mrs. Weesner is preceded in death by her husband, Mason Weesner and son, Greg Weesner. Her parents Clifford and Alice Boyd, and sister Etta Louise Boyd, uncle J.C. Boyd and aunt Mae Boyd.
She is survived by her son Jeff Weesner and wife Trela of Highland Village, Texas and daughter Carol Jan Weesner of Carthage, Texas; granddaughters Emily Weesner of The Colony, Texas and Andrea Weesner of Longview, Texas; and other family members.
