Audrey Jean Jeter, 69, of Weirton, WV, departed this life on May 6, 2021 at Weirton Medical Center.
She was born June 18, 1951 in Steubenville, OH, a daughter of the late Arthur and Edna Williams Jeter. She was a graduate of Weir High School.
Audrey possessed a gift for men’s and women’s fashion and interior home design. She was a skillful and masterful clothing stylist and interior decorator who mesmerized friends, family, work colleagues, and visitors with her singularly original creativity and unparalleled style and flavor.
She shared credit for her fashion genius with her former husband and lifelong friend, Gary Gillison, whom preceded her in death. Audrey worked all of her adult life in industries such as banking, retail, and manufacturing. She was the Office Manager at Levolor, Inc. in Weirton, WV, and she retired from Weirton Steel Corporation in 2000 after she survived a tragic car accident that left her with neurological injuries, which she fought to overcome for over 20 years with the help of her faith in Jesus Christ and the love and support of her family.
Audrey’s sisters, Bobbiette Jeter and Vanora Jeter, whom preceded Audrey in death, her sisters Gwen McNair, Delores (Jeter) King, JoAnn (Jeter) Smith, her nephews Mallory “JR” Fuller and Troy (Brianna) Fernandez, her niece Crystal Andrews, the Gillison Family, and a host of other friends and family actively and consistently supported Audrey’s recovery.
Audrey’s class and style made her the life of the party, and her friends and family will miss her. She is survived by: three sisters, Gwendolyn McNair of Cleveland, OH; Delores (James) King of Weirton, WV; and Jo Ann (John) Smith of Pittsburgh, PA, and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends.
