Gerry Weaver 1925 — 2016
On April 26, at her Ridgway home and surrounded by loved ones, Gerry Weaver, 90, peacefully ascended from natural causes.
Born Geraldine Mae Stowell in St. Louis on June 27, 1925, she married Billy Dennis Weaver, her college sweetheart, in 1945, and they maintained a loving, dedicated marriage for 60-plus years, until his ascendance in 2006. Though Dennis became a celebrity, she was always the real star of her family and the driving force behind his success, as he often referred to himself as “Mr. Gerry Weaver."
Gerry and Dennis discovered Ridgway in 1988 and felt an instant connection. They bought property on their very first visit, built the groundbreaking Sunridge Earthship, and spent the rest of their lives here, enjoying this special Town and its wonderful people.
