Jacqueline was born Jacqueline Marie Andreozzi on 8 July, 1944 in Pittsburgh, PA. After spending her early childhood years at home and then in an orphanage in Pittsburgh, she was adopted by her stepfather, Richard Weir, of the US Army, in 1953 and became an Army brat, travelling to Panama, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, Fort Mac Arthur, CA and Fort Bliss , TX with her parents. In 1964, she married Joseph T. Larremore, a US Army officer, with whom she had two sons: Michael C, of Wichita, KS; and Wayne A, of Valencia, CA, who survive. They were divorced in 1977. On 18 May, 1980, Jacqueline married William H. "Bill" Eggering, who survives in the home. After Bill retired from the US Army, he and Jacqueline opened a bed and breakfast in Leavenworth, the city in which they retired in 1993. Jacqueline ran the bed and breakfast with an assist from Bill, who also held a corporate position with a defense contractor in Leavenworth during that time. Upon discovering in August, 2011 that Jacqueline had brain cancer, both Jacqueline and Bill retired for the last time, especially so that Bill could care for his stricken wife. In addition to being a licensed optician, Jacqueline earned the distinction of being a Certified Coding Specialist in medical records under the auspices of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). She was also a charter member of the Nifty Thrifty Red Hatters of Leavenworth. In addition to Bill; Wayne, wife Shannon and their daughters Jacqueline and Alyssa; and Michael; Jacqueline is survived by two sisters, Marsha Warner (Chuck) in Pittsburgh and Anna DiBucci (Richard) in Hawaii; two brothers, Joe Weir (Katie) of Pittsburgh and Rick Weir (Connie) in Germany, plus a host of others, primarily in the greater Pittsburgh, PA area but some in other parts of the continental US.
