EDEN PRAIRIE - Peg Weaver, 97, Eden Prairie, formerly of Pelican Lake, Crow Wing County, Faribault, Minn., and Findlay, Ohio, died Friday, Aug. 10, 2007, at her home.
After 1976 she and Dr. Weaver made their home on Pelican Lake near Brainerd where they were active with the Paul Bunyan Arboretum, Thirty Lakes Watershed District and a local bird club. Peg, an early adopter of new ideas, got her first computer in 1982 and self-published her 163-page biography "Rememberings of an Eighty-Three-Year-Old Grandma" for her grandchildren in 1993. She wrote updates and e-mails after her moves into assisted living, first in Brainerd, then in Eden Prairie.
Grandma Peg will long be remembered for her lifelong curiosity and willingness to learn new ideas and being accepting of change.
Some of her life philosophy is captured in her Ethical Will and reflected in her love of hugs after 1987 when she attended a 12-step based recovery program in Arizona. From her Ethical Will, "No one lives forever. Quality of life is the most important thing in life. Death is not the worst thing. Life without love is far worse."
