Alice Marie Weaver, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend, ended a long battle with Alzheimer’s on June 3, 2022, and went to be with the Lord, her husband, Harry, son, Brian and many other family members. Originally from Warren, Alice spent the last five-plus years of her life in the Forest Hills Personal Care Home, which is owned by her son, Randy, and daughter in-law, Christine, in Sidman, PA. Despite the severity of her illness, she was beloved by the entire staff for her beaming smile, sense of humor and pleasant personality and she never lost her love for animals.
Alice grew up in the Starbrick area of Warren not far from the river. She was a graduate of Warren High School and one of seven children to Berton (“Bert”) and Charlotte (“Lottie”) Chapel, but her young adult years were spent far from Warren. In May 1953, she married a young Air Force Sergeant by the name of Harry Weaver and spent the next 25 years as an Air Force wife raising two sons and managing a household, sometimes single-handedly, that moved frequently. Following Harry’s retirement from the Air Force, Alice returned to “The Hill” in Pleasant Township where she and Harry had bought property shortly after their marriage.
While spending as much time as possible with family members she saw only rarely while an Air Force wife, Alice loved her home on the Hill. When weather permitted, which was most of the time, she could be seen hand-feeding squirrels, chipmunks and the occasional bird. She and Harry spent their time camping, fishing, traveling and sitting on the back porch visiting and watching the deer and the occasional bears – which she had to chase off the back porch more than once. Alice worked at the Allegheny National Fish Hatchery for several years, was very active in the local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans and volunteered at a local nursing home when she was able.
Alice was preceded in death by her father, Berton, her mother, Charlotte, and all of her siblings (Virginia Strom, Ruby Wilcox, Ellen Temple, Ruth Graham, Frank Chapel and Bonnie Higginbotham). She lost her husband of 56 years, CMSgt (Retired) Harry Weaver, in 2009 and her son Brian in 2017. She is survived by her son Randy and daughter in-law Christine, along with six grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
The Alice that we all knew and love will be sorely missed, but we know that she is in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior and that she is in a far better place with others that will welcome her with open arms.
