Lela “Evon” Weaver, 91, beloved mother and friend, passed away Sunday, July 13, 2015, at The Monroe Place in Bloomington, where she had lived the past three years.
Evon was born Oct. 29, 1923, in Rose Hill, Illinois. She was the daughter of Hiram and Mary Agnes Tracy and wife of military serviceman, John William Weaver, whom she married Oct. 26, 1957.
She and her husband lived in many parts of the world until returning to settle in Brown County. While raising two children, she became interested in politics and accepted a job with the Brown County treasurer. She later was voted in and served two terms as treasurer from 1981 through 1989.
She enjoyed cooking and baking and, along with her husband, opened a café in Nashville serving homemade soups, sandwiches and desserts.
A woman of devout faith, she was a dedicated member of St. Agnes Church.
She will be greatly missed by her family and friends, who will all remember her for her spunkiness.
Evon is survived by her daughter, Brigitte Evon Andrews (David Broome) of Columbus; her son, John “Richard” Weaver of Bloomington; grandchildren, Morgan Andrews, Malachi Weaver and MacKenzie Broome; and great-grandchildren, Wyatt Taylor and Kayleigh Spears.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; four sisters; and two brothers.
A Memorial Mass will be conducted by Father Eric Augenstein and Sister Eileen Flavin at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 1008 McLary Road in Nashville. A luncheon will follow. The family will receive visitors from 10 a.m. until the service. All are welcome.
The family extends a special thank you to The Monroe Place staff for the loving care Evon received during her stay there.
Memorial contributions can be made to St. Agnes Catholic Church in Evon’s memory.
