Mary Kathryn Weaver, 83, of Ephrata, peacefully went to be with our Lord and Savior on Thursday, April 2, 2020.

She was born in Ephrata Twp. to the late Elmer M. and Ada K. (Burkholder) Zimmerman.

She was a member of Alive Church, formerly Ephrata Mennonite Church and participated in many bible study and prayer groups.

Mary Kathryn worked for many years at Weaver's Market, The Artworks at Doneckers, Ephrata Hospital cafeteria and as a kind and tireless caregiver to many. She volunteered hundreds of hours through the Ephrata Cancer Center, Wellspan Ephrata hospital and Mennonite Central Committee. She was happiest spending time with her family and grandchildren baking goodies like cookies and dinner rolls. She also loved to share her passion for plants, quilting, knitting and other needlecrafts.

Weaver. She also opened her heart and home to Melody (Christ) Karick and Oz Christ. Her surviving siblings include Esther Mae, wife of the late Ron Fox, Narvon; Mervin Zimmerman, husband of Pearl (Heilinger), East Earl; Harry Zimmerman, husband of Debbie (Boyce), New Holland and Ada Naomi, wife of John Shirk, Denver and sisters-in-law, Vera Zimmerman, Stevens and Anna Mary Zimmerman, East Earl.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Harlan, Elmer and David Zimmerman and a sister, Evelyn Sensenig.
A celebration of her life will be announced at a later date. Interment will be at Weaverland Mennonite cemetery.

Dear Family of Mary Kathryn, Your mother was a ray of love and sunshine. We greeted each other at ECH, as she entered the doors to her employment. Our years there, we became friends forever! Thank You Lord God for a very REAL Place-Heaven!

She was always such a precious lady and thinking of others I will never forget the day after my brother was killed that her and Sharon brought a big platter of food to our family, spent a lot of time at her house as a child

Dear Mary K's family,
So sad that you must go on without your Mom, but how wonderful to know that she is at peace. I remember visiting your home in Reinholds when I was small and again each time I had a need to be at ECH. Your Mom always had a kind smile, a gentle voice and always serving in some capacity. May God comfort you as you adjust to this chapter new in your lives. Dawn Weaver Long
