Weasel and Coley were two of my favorite people. They knew me when I was born, being my parents good friends. We had 4 families that ate dinner together every Sunday night for many, many years. It was fondly known as Supper Club. The time spent at the Rhodes playing Red Light Green Light in the front yard with all the kids are memories I’ll never forget. Weasel was always so kind and had that laugh when you did or said something funny. I have a favorite pie recipe in my box that is simply “Weasel’s Pie” I visited her last year and she couldn’t say enough nice things about her family, especially her grandsons. I’ll remember her so dearly for the rest of my life

I have such fond memories of Weasel and her family. The Rhodes and Myricks were next door neighbors on Buckingham Road. The families were good friends throughout our entire childhood and later after all us children grew up, got married and (Alan Myrick married The “girl next door” Julie Rhodes!) so now we’re family together! Their children, Thomas and Dylan, loved visiting Weasel and Coley and also their Myrick grandparents next door!
Weasel was a lovely, gentle, sweet, smart, fun southern lady who was a positive role model in the lives of everyone who knew her. We love you Weasel!

My Aunt Weasel got her nickname because her younger sister, my mother Emma, couldn't say Mary Louise when they were little. I got my middle name Louise in her honor, and I loved her. I am so grateful that in her final 12 years when I had moved back to North Carolina, we had time to spend together. I'm grateful for the many delightful family stories she told me, our lunches together, our long talks and her smiles when she could come out to my car to see my two dogs in the back seat. Her body began failing her long ago, but her mind stayed strong until close to the end, and I know she's glad finally to be free of her aches and pains. I'll always hear her laugh when I think of her telling me about her stuffed animals getting into mischief while she slept. Enjoy your freedom, Aunt Weasel.

I only knew Weasel-- she asked me to call her by her childhood nickname--for the final year of her life. What a funny, delightful lady! Until the last few months we enjoyed many laughs, "rolls" about campus in her wheelchair (I was most grateful when she received a better one that was easier to push up hill), and stories of her growing up in Asheville. Almost till the end she maintained her faculties and enjoyed company, football, her beloved nephew, and her son's family. She greatly missed being unable to view streaming services from First Presbyterian Church. I'm not sure why that couldn't happen, but it didn't. Knowing her was my great pleasure.
