Mrs. Weber was born in Buffalo, the first of two children of Albert E. and Teresa A. Schwab Gunther. She was the oldest grandchild of Francis X. Schwab, who was mayor of Buffalo between 1922 and 1929. She graduated from Holy Angels Academy. During World War II, Mrs. Weber was a Red Cross volunteer at Buffalo hospitals. On March 8, 1944, she married Sgt. Thomas Arthur Weber in St. Peter’s Cathedral, Belleville, Ill., close to Scott Field, where her husband was stationed with the U.S. Army Air Corps. When they returned to Western New York, Mrs. Weber became active in Christ the King parish in Snyder. She served on the parish’s Bishop’s Committee, Ladies of Charity group, Parents Club and Altar and Rosary Society.

In 1955, the Webers were among the first group of 32 married couples selected to lead Pre-Cana classes for engaged couples planning to be married in the Roman Catholic Church. She modeled in many local fashion shows, and appeared on television and in ads for Kodak, her family said. In the mid-1960s, the Webers moved to Wayland, N.Y., and Mrs. Weber served on the board of directors for the Clara Barton Red Cross in Dansville for eight years and taught religious education at Wayland Central High School.
