On November 17, 2019, Mary “Christa” Southerland Weger, devoted mother, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, and cousin passed away unexpectedly in a tragic car accident that took not only her own life but also the life of her beloved daughter, Julie Anna Weger.

Christa was born in Hawkinsville, Georgia on July 18, 1961, the daughter of Troy Southerland and JoAnne Jones Nixon. She graduated from Bleckley County High School in 1979. Following her high school graduation, Christa began a journey to discover her path in life as an adult. Although it took her some time, Christa knew that she had found her calling when she was exposed to the field of nursing. She enrolled in nursing school and graduated from the program in 1987 with her RN. In her typical take charge fashion, she pursued this new challenge with courage and determination and a desire to learn as much as she could. Christa became a traveling nurse and accepted assignments and jobs in Atlanta, Orlando, New Orleans, Dallas, San Antonio, Albuquerque and California. It was in Orlando that she realized her love for pediatrics, and her gift for working with some of the most critically ill children. Christa eventually landed in Austin, Texas in 2007 and made her home there.

Although Christa enjoyed her career and never stopped striving to sharpen her skills as a nurse, it was becoming a mom to her two children Julie and Wes that gave her the most joy and fulfillment. She was thrilled when she and Frank were able to adopt beautiful Julie Anna Weger on May 1st, 2000 and beloved son Wes on Nov 15, 2004. Christa loved being a mom, and she felt it was her greatest calling. She was was fully devoted to Julie and Wes and loved them deeply.

Christa loved inspirational quotes and sayings. One of her favorites was by E. E. Cummings:

“Yours is the light by which my spirit’s born: - you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.”

She is preceded in death by her grandparents Lyman & Mary Ella Jones and William & Clara Southerland and her brother, King Southerland. Christa will be dearly missed by her parents Austin & JoAnne Nixon and Troy & Judy Southerland, her beloved son Wes, and devoted father to Julie and Wes, Frank Weger. She will also be forever remembered by her brothers and sisters Karen (Hendley), Joe (Kimberly), John (Michelle), Emily (Dan), Caroline (David), Susan, and Allie (Chris), and her numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.

The memorial service for Christa and Julie was held on November 23rd, 2019 at the Corley Funeral Home Chapel and was officiated by Dan Dever.

A couple of months ago, a kind, warm competent nurse, came to my home to do an annual evaluation for my disabled adult son. Both my guys graduated from Rouse HS in 2018. Christa spent about two hours at our home conducting a comprehensive interview and paperwork and getting to know us. She shared about her daughter with a twinkle in her eye. I was so sad to find out about the car accident that took Christa and Julie. Many prayers and love headed your way. It isn't often that someone can come in and make you feel at ease, while tacking the chore of an annual evaluation, but her sincere and calm spirit shined. I'm so sorry I won't get the pleasure of her company again.

I'm still in shock over the tragic loss of Christa and her beautiful daughter Julie. Christa was a colleague and a friend. I still remember meeting her for the first time. Her smile was so sincere. Christa genuinely cared for her patients and her staff. She was a fantastic human being. We shared many long conversations and our love of shopping. Our time spent at conferences together are some of my favorite memories of her. Her face always lit up when she talked about Julie and Wes. Sending love and prayers to the family. My words cannot accurately convey my sympathy for your loss.

I am deeply saddened by the great loss you and your family have suffered. My heart goes out to your family in this trying time. Christa was my boss at SKC. I remember all the good times we had and her love for all the babies that the company cared for. I most remember her always repeating or teaching me about her "southern phrases" that at times confused me. I was able to see Julie develop into a beautiful young lady. Christa loved her children with all her heart. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
