WEAVER – Anna L. Weaver passed away Tuesday, May 22, 2018, at her daughter’s home. She was 64 years old.

Anna was born February 1, 1954 at Mercy Hospital in Ignacio, Colorado to Ella Washington and Robert Buck Weaver. Anna was the youngest girl of thirteen children. Anna grew up in various locations some of which included Ignacio and Oklahoma but found her way back to Ignacio, where she settled down, got married, and had her two daughters. She then worked numerous jobs on the Southern Ute Reservation such as Southern Ute police department dispatch, the woodyard, grounds maintenance, Elder Services, and volunteered numerous places throughout the community.

Most importantly her favorite job was being around friends and family laughing and joking. Anna’s hobbies included traveling to watch her grandson’s basketball games, camping and fishing with her grandchildren, cooking for her grandchildren, hunting, gambling at the casinos, and most of all Anna enjoyed Beardance and watching her grandchildren dance.

A few of Anna’s interests were spending time outdoors, creating traditional chokers and shawls, reading mystery books, listening to her stereo, spending time with friends, she enjoyed to-work because it kept her busy, and being a die-hard Pittsburg Steelers fan and over her heels in love with Elvis.

She is survived by her daughters: Ella Marie Ramos and Marie Joy; grandchildren: Dominika Raven-Marie Joy, Calvin Klein Levato, Jr., Faustino Luciano-David Joy, Damitre Riley Burch, Mamie-Ruth Burch, Selena Cook, Rhianna Carel, and Maleina Carel; siblings: Hazel Weaver, Ella Louise Weaver, and Michael Tom, and numerous nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents and other siblings.
