March 20, 1925 - Aug. 14, 2017
Evelyn Marie Weber passed away at St. Anthony’s North Health Campus in Westminster, Colo., at the age of 92. Evelyn was born on March 20, 1925, to Gerald and Anna (Cunningham) Hines. As a girl, she lived in Tuthill, S.D., with her parents and six siblings. She attended Merriman Public High School and graduated with honors. Evelyn was united in marriage to Don Oran Weber on June 13, 1942. They were blessed with four children and ten grandchildren: Deanne, Kim, Tami, Teresa, Michelle, Matt, Tonia, Jason, Michael and Nicole, 22 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-granddaughter during their 74 years of marriage. Evelyn is fondly remembered for her musical talents. Having never had a piano lesson, she was able to compose and play beautiful music both in church (Merriman, Gordon and Ainsworth, Neb.,) and for her family.
Together they raised their children in Merriman, where they lived for 26 years.
Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents, Gerald and Anna Hines; three sisters, Dorothy Ann Hines, Helen Hines, and Wanda Blumenthal; and her daughter, Laura Ann Shaffer. Survivors include her husband, Don Oran Weber of Northglenn, Colo., her children, David (Linda) Weber and family of Deshler, Neb.; Terry Shaffer and family of Garden City, Idaho; Shirley (Jim) Blaylock and family of Brighton, Colo., Jim (James Ivey) Weber of Denver, Colo.,; and her siblings Donald (Shirley) Hines, Kenneth (Beverly) Hines, Leonard (Sharon) Hines, and Janet (Harlan) Reckling.
Her life will be honored in a ceremony to be held at a later date in Merriman, Neb., at the Merriman Memorial Cemetery.
