Sarah had a very friendly and outgoing personality and loved to talk with friends and strangers alike. She especially enjoyed her monthly luncheons with her Butler High School classmates.

She was a member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Independence, Missouri where she was baptized.

Sarah was preceded in death by her father and mother, Howard and Ruby Weaver, grandparents George and Susie Weaver and John and Sarah Anderson. Survivors are her brother John Weaver of Lincoln, Nebraska; sister Taleta (Terri) Wesner and husband Glen of Independence, Missouri; Aunt Claudia Brooks of Pittsburg, Kansas, and numerous cousins.

She was loved greatly and admired by her sister and brother and will be deeply missed every day of their lives.

  1. I am not long on words and didn’t know Sarah well since leaving school. I am sure she will be missed by her family and friends alike. It seems we are at a point where illness and death are starting to take a toll on our group.
    Was glad the hear that Joe was getting along and was sadden with the news of Garry’s wife passing.
    All of these have hit me a blow that was hard to deal with.
    These situation we never get over but little by little we learn to live with what is dealt to us. Some times the burden seems extra heavy but God give us the strength to lift up and go on.

    Love to all,

    Wesley Strange

  2. The BHS Class of 1955 would like to extend our sympathy to Sarah’s family, we will miss her. God be with you.

  3. I am grateful to Sarah’s brother John and sister Terri for encouraging me to friendship with her, a gift for which I am richer. Sarah had a deeply spiritual side which she kept very private. I am privileged to have had her share it with me through the simplicity of her way of being in the world. Sometimes she reminded me of a little sparrow in the way she would lite for a visit then seem to flit away; then return nearly unexpectedly with her inimitable gladness and charm.
    Sarah was a farm girl, in her core she required contact with nature.
