Janet Weaver

Janet F. Weaver, 85, formerly of Mechanicsburg, died on July 5, 2020, at Heritage Harbor, at Claremont Nursing and Rehab Center in Carlisle.

Janet was born August 17, 1934 in Blaine, the daughter of the late George W. and Mary (Wagner) Weaver. She was a graduate of Perry High School.  She was employed at the Navy Ships Parts Control Center in Mechanicsburg, retiring in September 1993 with over 42 years of service.

Janet was an independent, caring, and generous woman actively supporting many charitable organizations whose missions were directed at providing aid and assistance to others.  She enjoyed gardening and working in her yard and was an avid animal lover.  She was especially fond of the family’s boxer pups over the years, and in recent months was always cheered and encouraged by their in-person visits.

Ketterer, of Harrisburg. Surviving to mourn her passing are her brother George A.

I would like to let Janet’s family know that I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Janet when my Mom lived at Heritage Harbor. Janet was very welcoming to my Mom and I always enjoyed talking with her and listening to her tell me about the pictures in her room. I’m very thankful my Mom had such a nice person to welcome her. I am sorry for your loss of this wonderful woman. I am praying prayers of thankfulness for Janet and comfort for your family.

I worked with Janet in Contracting for 15 years before she retired from the Navy.  She always had a smile on her face.  May she rest in peace.

Janet and I were close, we have been through a lot together. I've been missing her for a long time now. We had so many adventures together. Is wanted to visit her when she first went away, but due to my handicap, I couldn't walk. Then is broken my hip and was at Clairmont and an aide took me up to visit her.  We laughed and talked about our adventures.  Then i had my first knee replacement, it didn't go to well. I ended up in Clairmont for six months, after removed from machines I got to go see Janet several times.  I cherish those visits, she was such a dear. I had been planning to see her when it was safe again.  Sonny, thank you for letting me take care of her, and taking her to appointments. We had such fun. Im so sorry for your loss.
