Elaine Weldon

Elaine Weldon, 74, of College Station went home to be with her Lord on Saturday, July 10, 2010, at the College Station Medical Center in College Station. Visitation will be from 4 to 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 13, at Central Baptist Church. A memorial service is set for Wednesday, July 14, at 2 p.m, also at the church.
Elaine was born February 15, 1936, in Mobile, Alabama, to John and Iris Shumaker. She was known for always being active and hardworking, as she was a long time employee of the Pasadena Independent School District. She has lived in the Bryan and College Station area for 10 years where she was retired from many years of volunteering at the George Bush Library, and volunteering for the Red Cross.
As an active member of Central Baptist Church in Bryan, she attended and loved her Sunday School class. She was also a member of the Bryan College Station Newcomers Group, and she recently became a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was an avid Bridge player and she loved her Tuesday Bridge games.
Elaine loved family history and she was very proud of her family, as she was a very devoted mother and grandmother. She was a true companion to her husband, Jim, and she loved traveling the country in their mobile home with him.
Survivors include her husband, Jim Weldon, of College Station, Texas; son and daughter-in-law, James and Chris Lewis, of Caldwell, Texas; daughters and son-in-law, Lynn Ann and James Wofford, of the Woodlands, Texas, Teresa Wright, of Steamboat Springs, Colorado; brother, Burt Shumaker, of Mississippi; grandchildren, Cheyanne Leibe, Daniel Wright, Natalie Wright, and Olivia Wright.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks for memorial donations to be made to Central Baptist Church.


  1. My sweet, sweet friend has gone away..I will miss her so very much. She was always there when I needed someone to laugh with, cry with, confide in, go to garage sales with..I guess God needed her to help Him in Heaven..she was a “good helper”. I love you, Elaine.


  2. There is such sadness in my heart for all of you, Elaine’s family, in your tragic loss. I am comforted to know that “[m]y God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Phil. 4:19 You will remain in my prayers in the weeks to come.

  3. Jim, we are saddened and shocked by the tragic news. Please accept our deepest sympathies and our thoughts and prayers. We will be thinking of you and your family.
    Sincerely, Slyck and Bear Pecena

  4. Elaine, we were not prepared for you to leave us. We still have to get together for lunch and reminisce about the old days in the Pasadena School District. To your family we send our utmost sympathy on their loss of wife, mother, mother in law and grandmother. We had plans for a lunch meeting after your recovery and I know you planned future bridge games. Now, too soon, you are gone. We miss you deeply. Our family of friends is one less.
    We will donate a memorial in your name to our new church where we have prayed for you since we knew of your pending operation. We love you and miss you dear friend.
    Tina and Bob Pereboom
