Claudia Dean Weaver, age 76, passed away peacefully June 14, 2020 in Tucson, Arizona. She was born July 22, 1943 in Detroit, Michigan, to Claude and Barbara Phillips, who preceded her in death, along with her brother Douglas.

Claudia spent her childhood in Detroit, where after graduating high school, she married Hugh Dickerson Jr. They had three wonderful children together.

While still in the Detroit area, Claudia started working with computers for the IRS, a field she would work in the majority of her career. After moving to the Dallas, Texas area in the 70’s, she began and completed her college education at the University of Texas at Dallas, acquiring a Master’s in Business Administration - all while continuing to work and raise a family with her second husband John Benke.
In the mid 80’s Claudia briefly lived in San Bernardino, California before returning to Dallas, Texas and marrying Dennis Weaver, hence her current name. She then moved to Tucson, Arizona in the late 90’s, where she ultimately retired and took her aging parents into her home.

Claudia was an avid reader! The subject matter was of no concern; she would consume books, magazines, newspapers, and other reading material. In Tucson, she belonged to a Sci-Fi book club. She also volunteered as a tutor for school-aged English Language Learners. Claudia had other passions too! In her younger days she loved to roller skate, play tennis, bowl and run, even completing half marathons. As she got older, her interests turned to biking and hiking, which made Tucson a perfect fit for her lifestyle. She won awards in the women’s division of the El Tour de Tucson bicycle competitions and always strived to surpass her own goals! Claudia loved the groups of people she met and befriend and the conversations they had. She also loved to travel and embraced numerous opportunities to see places around the world. In her down time, she enjoyed puzzles, board and card games, with “Oh Hell!” being one of her favorites.

Claudia is survived by her daughter and husband Dianne and Jim Kolb; son and wife Hugh and Julia Dickerson; daughter and husband Michelle and George Torres; her sister and husband Irene and Larry Twork; brother and wife Clifford and MaryJo Phillips; sister and husband Nora and John Grabowski; sister Loretta Henze; her 8 grandchildren; plus 6 great grandchildren and her many nephews and nieces. All of these she loved and touched deeply.

Due to current affairs, the ceremony will be private. Donations may be made to one of her favorite activities, Southern Arizona Hiking Club, PO Box 32257, Tucson, AZ 85751-2257. Condolences, memories, prayers, and thoughts may be left here on the Memory Wall.

I started work with Claudia at Majors back in 1990 and always thought of Claudia as one of my best friends there. She was always supportive and willing to help out a friend. We stayed in touch for some time after I left Majors and would periodically (not often enough) touch base. Today, I decided to see if I could see what she is up to and discovered the sad news of her passing. Claudia was a good soul and will certainly be missed by so many, I am sure. Rest peacefully Claudia and may your memory be blessing to all of those who knew you!

I have very fond memories of the times I spent with Claudia. I first met her about 16 years ago when I showed up for my first hike on Blackett’e Ridge in Sabino Canyon. She was part of a group that did it every Tuesday morning. I became a regular and met her cheery welcome for the next 7 years. She encouraged me to join another group on Thursday nights when we walked the Canyon road before gaining back all the lost calories at Risky Business afterwards. Since we usually hiked at about the same pace, we had a lot of enjoyable conversations on the trail. I remember one year she had 100+ hikes giving her second place in the SAHC.

When Sabino Canyon closed due to mountain lion sightings, we decided to hike Tumamoc Hill just west of downtown. Since it was not as rigorous as Blackett’s, we usually did it twice. My most memorable hike with her was Picacho Peak. That was a tough one.

Claudia also enjoyed traveling and biking. I remember her telling me about her hiking the Milford Track in New Zealand. I had a tour company and she came on a number of those with my groups. I used to follow her biking results in El Tour de Tucson.

The first time I met Claudia (1992) we went on a run around Lake Lansing in Haslett, Michigan where her sister Irene was living at the time. That was the beginning of many runs and walks throughout the years. It was especially fun when I could join Claudia and her Arizona Hiking Club for the Thursday walks up the road in Sabino Canyon followed by a beer and nachos at Risky Business. But many more walks and travel occurred over the years with Claudia and Irene including; riding bicycles down Haleakala on Maui, cruises through the Panama Canal and the Alaska Inside Passage, and a 12 day Christmas/New Years cruise. Claudia was fun and interesting to talk and walk with, especially about investing, finance, science fiction, and many times about her computers and internet router! She was smart, witty, and fun to be with. She could be a little bit kooky about diet like using potato chips, cheezits and coke almost as dinner, but at the same time getting “frustrated” with me for cutting the stems off broccoli. She was a wonderful sister-in-law and will be greatly missed.
