Patsy Ann Weaver, a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away at 79.
Pat was the daughter of Willard Wallace Tully and Alice Katherine Tully. She was born in Glendale, grew up in Alhambra and graduated from Alhambra High School and Pasadena City College where she met Everett (Gene) Weaver. They were married on July 18, 1953 and soon were settled at Fort Ord, Calif., where Gene was in the Army Language School.
After the Army sent Gene to Japan during the Korean conflict, Pat moved home to Alhambra to live with her parents and soon thereafter their first son Lance was born at the Army hospital in San Pedro while Gene was in Japan. Upon his return from Japan, Pat and Gene settled in Alhambra and sons Drew and Todd were born in 1958 and 1960. The early years were spent in Alhambra and San Fernando before the family moved to Pasadena in 1964 and Pat began her career as a music librarian at Occidental College followed by a career as a para Legal.
The family moved to Laguna Beach in 1971 and Pat continued her career in the legal field all the while being an extraordinary mother and wife. All three sons graduated from Laguna Beach High School and subsequently from Georgetown University (Lance), The American College in Paris (Drew) and The University of Southern California (Todd). From an early age, Pat instilled in her sons the importance of education and later was instrumental in establishing the Weaver Family Scholarship at Laguna Beach High School, which the family has renamed the Patsy Ann Weaver Scholarship in her memory.
Pat resided in her Laguna Beach home on Cliff Drive for over 40 years and loved meeting and getting to know the many recipients of the Weaver Family Scholarship. As these young people went on to achieve great things in college and beyond, they would periodically return to Laguna to visit Pat and tell her that it would have never been possible without her support.
Pat loved to travel and went to China in 1983, years before it became a common travel destination. She also visited Paris frequently while Drew was in college and took in all that great city has to offer. Over the last decade all her family would gather during the Christmas holidays at the Los Cabos vacation home of her eldest son Lance. She treasured these memories with her children’s families and especially watching her grandchildren grow up.
Her children and grandchildren affectionately called her “Pars”. She will always be loved and remembered as an example of a life well lived. She was also a great wife, friend, and neighbor who was always there for her family as they in turn were always there for her. She will be dearly missed.
Pat leaves behind her husband Gene, son Lance, his wife Karyn and granddaughters Loring and Logan; son Drew, his wife, Carol and granddaughter Kaila; and son Todd, his wife Jane, and grandchildren Nat and Dana.
A private graveside memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2013.
