Shirley Louise Weber

Shirley Louise Weber, age 93 of Traverse City, went home to be with her lord and reunite with her beloved husband Ray on March 21,2018. She was born on February 25, 1925 in Hazel Park to Julius and Rosalie (Boike) Kanarske. Shirley married Ray Weber on April 18, 1942 in Royal Oak, Mi..

Shirley was selfless and humble as she made the best of any situation, always putting others first. She had a beautiful smile and enduring sense of humor. Raymond preceded her
in death January 2, 2005. She had been head cook at Cherry Knoll School for over 20 years. Her family owned the Weber Construction Company. She enjoyed playing cards,
gardening, going to son Ken's camps in Canada to hunt, fish, explore and garage sales. She was a member of Buttons and Bows Square Dance Club - they loved to dance. Ray and
Shirley made a long desired trip to Alaska with Gordon and Kathy in 1995.

Most of all she loved her family. She is survived by her four children Rosemary (Donald) Brown of Traverse City, Kenneth (Ruth) Weber of Kingsley, Gordon (Kathy) Weber of Cedar
and Nancy Olson of Traverse City, 10 grand children, 20 great grand children and 4 great great grand children. Shirley was preceded in death by her parents, 3 infant brothers, sisters
Elsie (Edward) Henning and Florence ( Edward) Castle.
