Billie Virginia Weber passed away Saturday, July 6, 2013. She was born in Hartshorne, Oklahoma to Virgil and Verda (Basden) Riley.

She lived in southeastern Oklahoma, around Hartshorne and Antlers, until 1943, and then in Oklahoma City until 1947. She moved to Sweet Home with her family for her father’s work. She met William “Bill” L. Weber, a lifelong Sweet Home resident, and the two married on June 9, 1948 in Olympia, Washington. They lived on 17th Ave near Elm, in a house Bill built, until 1971, when they moved to the Weber family farm on Pleasant Valley Road. The two lived there until 2001, when they bought a house on 3rd Street, where Billie remained until 2010. In the final years of her life she lived at Wiley Creek housing and then relocated to the Portland area for better care.

Billie was involved in multiple community activities, including the Chamber of Commerce, East Linn Museum, School Board, and Fir Lawn Lutheran Church. She worked as secretary at the Middle School and High School; a bookkeeper at Les Schwab; and then as a real estate broker until her retirement in 2010.

She is survived by siblings Betty Feuerhelm, Dave Riley and Barbara Barber, all of Portland; sons Larry Weber of Hillsboro and Michael Weber of Lake Oswego; grandchildren Jason Weber, Joel Weber, Ryan Weber, Alison Wright and Alex Weber; and great-grandchildren AnneMarie Weber and Nolan Wright.

Billie was preceded in death by her husband, Bill Weber, who passed away on November 28, 2004, and her brother Bobby Riley.
