Weaver produced quality work and an abundance of it.

“We are saddened by the loss of our colleague and friend, Ann,” said Kelly Dyer Fry, editor of The Oklahoman and vice president of news for OPUBCO Communications Group. “She was a dedicated reporter and true professional. Ann had a way of coaxing people to open up to her.

“Her writing talents made our readers feel as if they were present for the interview.”

Weaver was among a team of writers from The Oklahoman and the Tulsa World who worked together on a project about group homes. In 2011, the project won a Great Plains Journalism Award in a journalism competition with entrants from multiple states.

The project also won awards from The Associated Press/Oklahoma News Executives and the Society of Professional Journalists.

“We are grateful she shared her talents with us all,” Fry said.

Services are set for 10 a.m. Monday at the United Presbyterian Church in Shawnee. Walker Funeral Home is directing the service.
