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.
Gerry’s generosity was unbounded — over the years she was a significant contributor to many local organizations and events, and if not for her, the Weaver Memorial Park would not have become a beautiful part of Ridgway.    
She loved everyone and everything — her huge heart, unbridled energy and incredible spirit will be missed by all who knew her.
She leaves behind 3 loving sons, 2 daughters-in-law, 3 amazing grandchildren, a precious great granddaughter, and many, many friends. Though it would be appropriate to pray that Gerry “Rest In Peace,” that is just not her. On the contrary, she, as did Dennis, has found her Eagle and is flying — blissfully soaring, with Him.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation to your favorite charity in Gerry's name. Thank you. A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, May 22 at the Sunridge Earthship from noon until 3:00 p.m.
