David Samuel Weaver passed away at the Mennonite Hospital in La Junta, Colo., on Sunday evening, May 5, 1929; at the age of 68 y. 9 m. 18 d. Bro. Weaver had not been in good health for several years past and an operation was decided upon in the hope of relieving his condition. He rested well after the surgeon's knife had done its work, and the prospects for his recovery were bright, until he suffered a relapse and passed away within a few hours. Bro. Weaver was born near Harrisonburg, Va., July 17, 1860. As a boy of 9 years he accompanied his parents to Jasper Co., Mo., where he grew to manhood and took up farming as his life work. He was married, Jan. 5, 1892, to Barbara Diller, at his wife's home near Toronto, Ont. The family remained in Missouri until 1906 when they came to La Junta, and have resided on a farm near there since. He was a life-long member of the Mennonite Church, and was always active in the work. The Lord had blessed him with abundance, and of this he gave liberally to all institutions of the Church. He was especially interested in the work of the Sanitarium, and was active in its construction on land purchased from him. Later on he labored faithfully in the interests of the Hospital recently erected at La Junta. He was often called to serve on various boards (hospital board 1906 - 1920s), and gave liberally of his time and means. Bro. Weaver is survived by his sorrowing wife and four children: Martin M., and Frances Grimm, of La Junta; Paul and Anna Hartzler, of Goshen, Ind. The following brothers and sisters survive: Mrs. Betty Hotchkiss, Granger, Ia.; Mrs. Susannah Smith, St. Louis, Mo.; Charles, Jesse, and Jonas Weaver, Alba, Mo.; Jerry Weaver, Newton, Kans.; William Weaver, Twin Falls, Ida.; Mrs. Mary Cockley, Elkhart, Ind.; and Mrs. John Driver, Versailles, Mo. Funeral services were held May 8, from the La Junta Mennonite church, conducted by Bro. J. A. Heatwole, assisted by Bros. Allen H. Erb,and D. H. Bender. The body was laid to rest in the Mennonite cemetery at La Junta.
