Thelma Mae Weaver

Thelma Mae (Kreider) Weaver passed peacefully into Heaven Monday, May 23, 2011.

For 63 years she was the loving wife of John Edward Weaver. Born in Conestoga, she was the daughter of Margaret Foutz and granddaughter of Phares and Mary (Warfel) Foutz.

Mom most enjoyed spending time with family and friends, doing crossword puzzles, and listening to music of the Big Band era.  She had a beautiful smile and a love for all who knew her.

A member of St. Anthony of Padua Church for the past 35 years, she had been active in the Senior Citizen Group and Bereavement Committee.  As a stay-at-home Mom she was able to serve as Cub Scout leader, Girl Scout leader, PTO member, family chauffer and faithfully attended every school and athletic event.

She will be deeply missed by her five children: John E. Weaver Jr., husband of Esther Chang, Glendale, AZ; Brenda Weaver, Lancaster; Patrick Weaver, husband of Nanette (Kulp),  Lancaster; Pamela, wife of James Henderson, Vernon, NY; and Ronald Weaver, husband of Kathe (Sherts), Lititz.

A special joy to her was her grandchildren: Janine, Sharon, Philip, Samantha, Ronnie and Robbie.  She would especially light up when her younger grandchildren Maddie and Melissa, and her great-grandchildren Amanda and Micah came to visit.

The family greatly appreciates the loving care Thelma received during her stay at Lancashire Hall.

Friends will be received on Friday, May 27, 2011 from 6-8PM, with the recitation of the Holy Rosary at 730PM, at the Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home & Crematory, 414 E. King St., Lancaster, PA. Friends may call again at the funeral home on Saturday, May 28, 2011 from 9-10AM, with the Mass of Christian Burial to follow at 1030AM at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, 501 E. Orange St., Lancaster, PA 17602, the Rev. Daniel Mitzel as Celebrant. Interment in St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.

Dear Pam and Jim,
    So sorry about the loss of your mother.  She sounds like a wonderful person…and I guess she really would have loved our Chorale concert.   Thinking of you.

To the Weaver Family:
  My personal sympathy to all of you in the loss of wife, mother, and grandmother. Remember well when the Weaver family lived on E. New St. here in the city and not far away from my residence. Ron and my son went to school together.  Remember Ed when I worked in the Parish Office at St. Anne Church.
May she Rest In Peace.
