Caroline Stackhouse Weiner, the school counselor at St. Bernadette School in Springfield, died unexpectedly on Feb. 4 at her home in Alexandria. She was 32 years old and wife to Justin Matthew Weiner and the mother of sons Brock, 5 and Cullen, 2; and 3-week-old daughter Caroline.
The Bishop Ireton High School graduate is also survived by her parents, Peter and Carol Stackhouse; brothers, Chad, John “Jed” and Graham Stackhouse; sisters, Claire Bartick, Anne Colby, Elizabeth “Liddy” and Mary Tyler Stackhouse.
In a letter to parents, Principal Michael Kelleher wrote, “It is with indescribable sadness, yet with hope of the resurrection, that I share with you the sudden death of our school counselor Mrs. Caroline Stackhouse Weiner. Mrs. Stackhouse pioneered our school counseling program. She worked tirelessly to listen, advocate and support the children in our school. She loved our school, our students and our team of teachers. Her unforeseen passing comes as a shock to all of us. We do not know the cause at this time.”
A viewing was held Feb. 10 at Everly-Wheatley Funeral Home and a Mass of Christian Burial was offered Feb. 11 at Blessed Sacrament Church with internment at Ivy Hill Cemetery.
