Thelma J. Weaver
Thelma J. Weaver, 76, of Montoursville, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016, at her home, surrounded by family.
Born on Dec. 7, 1939, in Montoursville, she was a daughter of the late Lewis and Bessie Turner. She was predeceased in death by her sister, Arlene Turner and four brothers, Martin, Howard, Earl and Paul Turner.
She graduated from Montoursville Area High School in 1957 and began working in an office doing clerical work, which she later gave up to stay home and care for her mother. Following her mother’s passing, she went back to work as a florist at Nevill’s Flowers. After some time, she went to work for Woolworth’s department store at the Lycoming Mall. She greatly enjoyed caring for people, so she pursued a career in the health care industry. She retired after 21 years of working as a Nurse’s Aid at Lysock View and Valley View nursing homes.
Thelma enjoyed many things in life. She enjoyed gardening, feeding the birds and rabbits that came into her yard, taking bus trips, going to yard sales, reading, doing puzzles and playing cards. She especially enjoyed visiting with her family for weekly dinners and outings. She loved to collect wind chimes and angel figurines. She also enjoyed the companionship of many pets over the years.
She was an amazing mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and no amount of words can describe just how much she was loved and will be missed.
She is survived by her only daughter, Chrissie G. (Lee) Perry, of South Williamsport; brother, Dale O. Turner, of Williamsport; grandchildren, Michael A. (Heather) Danley, of Williamsport, Joseph A. Danley Jr. (Adriene DeParasis), of Williamsport, Luke E. (Loren) Perry, of Linden, Andrea S.(Chris) McElroy, of Linden and three great-grandchildren, Vincent, Kenzie and Tyler; as well as many nieces and nephews.
A very, very special “Thank You” goes to her lifelong best friend, until the end, Patricia Shrey.
The family is respecting Thelma’s wishes and there will be no visitation.
Memorial contributions in Thelma’s name may be made to Susquehanna Health Foundation: 1001 Grampian Blvd., Williamsport, PA 17701, c/o Susquehanna Hospice, the Cancer Treatment Center or to any charity of your choice.
