Sylvia Joan Weaver slipped away peacefully, Monday evening, December 26, 2022.

She was born February 20, 1939 in Corvallis, Oregon to Rolland Scott and Frances Madge (Loudenslager) Scott.

She attended a variety of schools in Michigan, England, and New York State, as her father was a veterinarian in the U.S. Air Force. She graduated from Washingtonville, New York High School in 1957 and attended Mary Balwin College, and graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1961.

Sylvia was married for 50 years to Donald Eugene Weaver, a Gettysburg son, until his death in 2015. She is survived by her sons, David Scott Weaver (Jennifer) of Gettysburg, Daniel Paul Weaver (Lori) of Kennebunk, Maine and grandchildren, Allison Weaver, Boston, Mass., John Weaver, Jacksonville, FL, and Sarah Weaver, Kennebunk, ME.
