Q. How are Frances Weller and Margaret Weller Stargell related to Katherine Moore? Are there any more siblings? Who was their mother? Their father?

A. WECT-TV6 news anchor Frances Weller has a twin sister, Margaret Stargell, who also lives in Wilmington and was married to the late Willie Stargell, a former Pittsburgh Pirate baseball player and member of Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame. Margaret is president and CEO of the nonprofit Coastal Horizons Center Inc.

They are the daughters of Katherine Weller and the late Fritz Weller. Katherine Weller was the recipient of the Rachel Freeman Unsung Hero Award. She has been active in the fight against breast cancer since being diagnosed in 1992. She has participated regularly in the Relay for Life and served as a model for the Ta-Ta Sisterhood calendar.

Katherine Moore is another daughter of the elder Katherine Weller. She is a former Wilmington city councilwoman who has filed lawsuits against the city and accused the Wilmington Police Department of harassment and violating her civil and constitutional rights.

MyReporter was unable to find the identity of Moore’s father. There are also reportedly three deceased brothers in the family, although their names were unavailable.

Frances Weller did not respond to repeated requests to provide input to this question.
