Mrs. Weaver was born August 8, 1924 to Walter and Helen Patton in Winner, SD. She lived in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma City, OK in her youth and eventually graduated from Keno High School in 1941 in Keno, OR. She married James Philip Wright in 1942 in Reno, NV. She was widowed at the age of 28 when her husband drowned in Waldo Lake in 1953. To this union were born three children surviving her: Anita Christine Keays (husband, Wendall) of Peoria, AZ;
Helen Diane Wright-Buell (husband Dean) of Seattle, WA; and James Phillip Wright of Phoenix, AZ.
She worked as a secretary for a local Architectural firm. Ultimately, she worked for the Department of Social Services for 25 years in CA before she retired. During that time she was married to Carl Weaver, also from Klamath Falls. She met him in San Luis Obispo, CA at a square dance. This led to their marriage in 1962. She and her husband spent many years square dancing, and traveling extensively in their motor home. They returned to Klamath Falls in 2003 to live out their retirement together. They were married 43 years before he died in Klamath Falls, OR.
In addition to her children, she is survived by six grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren
and 7 great-great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husbands, brother
Walter Patton, and grandsons: Jim Wright III and Capt. James W. Keays and
granddaughter Christie Lee Keays. She joined the National Society Daughters of the
American Revolution in 2000. Her patriot was Jacob Patton of VA.
She considered Klamath Falls “home” and has enjoyed years of living at Pelican Pointe
where she felt like she was surrounded by people who cared for her like family. In lieu

“Rejoice in the Lord always, again I will say Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to
everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God. And the peace
of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in
Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7
