Pamela Jean Weaver

Pamela Jean Weaver, 68 of Olivet, a caring lady with a beautiful smile, died at home surrounded by her loving family on January 20, 2022. Born Pamela Jean Rittenour on September 28, 1953, in Midland, she grew up and graduated from High School there in 1971. She went on to get her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Michigan State University, and went to work for the State of Michigan as a food inspector for 32 years. In September of 1978 she married Karl Amos Weaver and became a proud and strict, but fair mother to their three sons. Always gracious, Pam loved the Lord and sharing this love as a Sunday School teacher, member of the church choir, and a member of the State Christian Nurture Board for over 30 years.
Always with love and a giving spirit, Pam would help anyone in need, it made her happy to serve others and be an example of God’s love. Some of the activities she enjoyed include camping, NASCAR (working 19 years at the MIS race), fostering pets until they could find their “furever” homes (many of which stayed with Pam and Karl), and collecting everything with cow/moose on it. She was very proud of her family and their accomplishments and enjoyed being a grandmother more than anything.
Her smile and her jokes will be dearly missed by her family. She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Karl; sons, Karl (Melissa Ann), Robbie (Amanda), and Timothy James (Heidi); grandchildren, Theodore, Lilly, and Alex; and sister, Anne (Tom) O’Brian; and many four-legged fur babies.
