Obituary For Lynne Marie Weber
Lynne Marie Weber, 65, passed away at home in Poulsbo, Washington surrounded by family on Saturday, February 12, 2022. Anyone else battling multiple myeloma cancer would have surrendered after one risky chemotherapy treatment, yet she completed every regiment available- 8 in 3 years. She was fierce, stubborn, loyal, caring, and truly salt of the earth. She is deeply loved and will be missed every day by her family and friends.
Lynne was born in Davenport, Iowa on December 13, 1956, the first of 3 children Alfred and Jeannette Wells would have. She went to Joseph A. Craig High School where she met and then would marry Steve Weber. After marrying and moving to South Carolina for Steve’s Navy service, she would complete her GED. She spent the next 30 years raising her 3 children, being very active in multiple school activities and booster groups. Once her babies flew the nest, she was able to devote more time to her lifelong passion of animal care and wildlife rehabilitation. She most recently worked at the West Sound Wildlife Shelter in Bainbridge Island for over a decade. Lynne cared for just about every wild animal in Washington including eagles, ospreys, hummingbirds, deer, coyotes, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, rabbits, chipmunks, river otters and more; over 1600 each year. She was doing what she was meant to do. Wildlife rehabilitation was her passion, her mission and her love.
Lynne was best known for her love of animals. Never one to turn away care or love to any animal, she did prefer to have larger animals at home. Including her horse Tzuni, her large dog breeds Newfoundlands (Phil) and Bernese Mountain Dogs (Sir, Yankie and Cam), and her Maine Coon Cats (Yeti and Sasquatch). Her home was always filled with animals both domesticated and wild. If she wasn’t nurturing an injured or rescued animal, she loved to spend time cultivating gardens, everything from sea glass corn, to tomatoes (which she couldn’t seem to ever grow well) to her beloved giant pumpkins. The biggest grown at over 650 pounds!
Lynne is preceded in death by her Mother Jeannette in 2006 and her Father Alfred in 2018. She is survived by her husband of 46 years, Steven Weber; daughters Jessica Weber of Port Orchard; Megan (Casey) Jennings of Bremerton and son AJ Weber of Bremerton; grandchild Colin Jennings; Sister Nancy Wells and Brother Chris Wells.
As giving and altruistic as she was in life, she will continue to be in death. Lynne’s remains are being terramated by the process of natural organic reduction, in which her remains will be turned into soil to be given back to her family. We plan to grow gardens, flowers, trees and of course giant pumpkins with Mom’s compost.
The family requests that donations be made in her name to West Sound Wildlife Shelter, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society or to your local blood center. And if you would like to plant a tree nourished with her soil please let us know and we can save a small bag for you.
