Jessica M. Dettore, a loving, kind, and remarkable woman, passed away at her home on Thursday, June 4, 2020, from complications that originated from diabetes.
The third-born child and baby girl to James W. and Pauline Maczko Reid, Sr. Jessie grew up in Burgettstown, PA, and graduated from Union High School. After high school, Jessie studied theatre.
Theatre was her passion and rewarded her with a lifetime of blessings. Theatre is where she met the love of her life, soulmate, and best friend, her husband Rich, and the two of them were able to give back to the Weirton community by providing arts and culture to the area youths and adults.
In addition to her 15-year employment with Weirton Steel, Jessie was the Founder, Director of Weirton Community Players, and Drama 1 Direct Studio of the Arts. Jessie had an eye for talent, and when she discovered you, you could not say no to her. Jessie’s commitment to the Arts was recognized by the City of Weirton when she was inducted into the Weirton Hall of Fame.
Jessie found joy in giving to others. She loved to shop but could not wait to give her gifts to her husband, nieces, nephews, and family. She also had an eye for interior design and decorating.
Most of all, Jessie will be remembered for the love she shared for 35 years with her husband, Rich. Their relationship was like her, unique, and one of a kind. They were truly blessed.
Jessica was preceded in death by her parents, and her brother, James Willis Reid, Jr.
She will be remembered with love by her husband, Richard S. Dettore, brother, John Wayne (Tina) Reid, Sisters in law, Georgette Reid, and Dee Dettore; Brother in Law, George (Cathy) Dettore; nephews Greg (Adrienne) Dettore and John Christopher (Tracy) Reid; nieces Lorie (David) Byers, Karen (Richard) Freeman and Cheri (Jesse) Pettit; great-nephews DJ and Jeremy Byers and Brandon and Kevin Pettit; great-nieces Riley, Paige and Emma Reid.
A memorial service and celebration of life will be held on her birthday July 30, 2020, at the family home on Beacon Drive in Weirton, WV.
