Betty Weaver, 94 of Paris, Missouri, passed away December 15, 2019 at the Monroe Manor nursing home in Paris. Betty was born November 11, 1925 near Victor, Missouri, the daughter of Jesse and Garland Isabel “Belle” Roney Gentry. She was married to Charles Weaver on December 24, 1942 in Paris, Missouri. She is survived by her children, Barbara Sutch (Gary) of Sodotna, Alaska, and Joy Dietz (Paul) of Lafayette, Indiana; five grandchildren, Kathy Sutch, Kristina Beckstead (Cimmy), Christopher Balmer, Eric Dietz (LeighAnn) and Julie Abreght; four great-grandchildren Samuel and Veronica Dietz, Ian Abreght, and Harvey Beckstead; sister, June Morgan (Dale), and many nieces and nephews. Betty was preceded in death by her husband, parents and an infant son, Gerald Wayne Weaver.
Betty and Charles farmed near Victor until 1959 when they moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. While in Albuquerque, they set to the task of making a life for themselves and two daughters. Betty worked as a cafeteria food manager for the school lunch program, hospital food service supervisor, and finally as safety inspector at Lovelace Medical Center until her retirement in 1986. Following retirement, Betty returned to Paris. Since her return, Aunt “B” as she came to be known kept busy all the time. Some knew her as a good neighbor who could whip up a meal in a flash including her famous coconut cream pie or the lady who walked two miles in a blink of an eye. Aunt “B” truly enjoyed dancing and spent many an hour on the dance floor each week. She loved to crochet and give her handiwork away as gifts. When she wanted to be a farmer again, she spent time with her sister and brother-in-law, June and Dale Morgan, on their farm. She enjoyed trips to visit her daughters’ families, especially the grandchildren, who lived out of state. Betty will be remembered for her energy, friendliness and generous spirit.
