A beloved TORnsib has sailed West Can't Post

My dear fellow members of the TORn Message Boards, it is with profound sadness that I share with you the news that one of our long-time members, weaver, after a lengthy illness, has taken ship in the Havens and passed into the West.



Our beloved TORnsib passed away peacefully at home on Thursday evening, September 29, 2016 in the presence of her loving family. She was born in Parma, Ohio, educated at Heidelberg University, and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English. She married the love of her life in 1989 in Columbus Ohio. She moved with her family to New York in 1999 and continued her profession as a writer, establishing her own company and focusing on grants and fundraising for Not-For-Profits. Through her efforts, organizations succeeded in obtaining grant funding, constructing and expanding facilities, and in running successful fundraising, capital and endowment campaigns. In addition to these campaigns, she was very successful in raising significant funding for dozens of organizations, businesses and municipalities.

A lifelong lover of music, she was a strong proponent of the value of music in our schools. She helped found the Massena Music Friends organization, supporting the purchase of instruments and programs that are beyond the capacity of the local school. She excelled at taking an idea and making it a reality, and supported many other groups for the betterment of the community.

She is survived by her husband and her three sons, along with a number of nieces and nephews.

Her beloved husband understood and appreciated her love of all things Tolkien, and had a beautifully appropriate prayer card made for her:





Weaver was a gifted writer, contributing her thoughts and insights as often as she could to these Boards, from erudite Reading Room conversations to threads that are simply fun.

She had even contributed four articles to the "J.R.R. Tolkien Encyclopedia" of 2006: "Film Scripts, Unused"; "Juliana"; "Pearl: Edition by E.V. Gordon"; and "Suffield Family".

And several of us had the pleasure of meeting her. Here she is, with N.E.Brigand at the Vermont Tolkien Conference in April 2009:




Please feel free to post to this thread your thoughts and memories of weaver. Heart

It is my wish that she has found her way to a well-known Inn, where a certain Professor has ordered her a Pint, and has been awaiting her arrival...
