Mary M. Weir Yoder, 46, of Sandy, died April 11, 2004, after a multi-year battle with cancer.

There will be a celebration of Mary’s life at the Richland Grange Hall from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday. Friends are invited to stop by to visit with her parents and family. At Mary’s request, her body was cremated.

Mary was born on Oct. 22, 1957, at Baker City and grew up at Richland. She was a 1975 graduate of Pine-Eagle High School at Halfway. She then moved to the Portland area where she became a successful businesswoman.

Mary began her professional career with First Interstate Bank (later Wells Fargo Bank) in 1975. She worked her way up through the company to become division vice president. She took an early retirement in 2001 when her medical challenges began.

Mary traveled extensively and loved working for Wells Fargo. She had many friends within the banking industry and was a respected employee and manager at Wells Fargo.

Mary was generous in every way to family and friends. She made special efforts to help and mentor her nieces and nephews in any way she could. She loved to travel and spent winters in Arizona with her parents. Mary was the center of attention when in Arizona, and made many new friends wherever she went.

Mary loved to garden and to shop. She had many unique items, which always made her home and garden a delight to explore and experience. She was well known for her style and flair in decorating.

She was bold yet sophisticated. Mary loved everything about home decorating, both inside and out. She was an avid gardener and master of finding that odd, yet tasteful item that would absolutely set the tone for her creative decorating.

Mary’s stylish manner and unique humor were well known to her family and friends. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her, but will remain in their hearts and minds for eternity.

Survivors include her parents, John and Donna Weir of Richland; sister, Judi Grantz, and her husband, Ron, of Sandy; brothers and sisters-in-law, Neil and Cindy Weir of Mountain Home, Idaho, and Jerry and Mary Weir of Halfway; and numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.
