Obituary

Hilda Mary Pharr, was called home on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at the age of 97.  She was the daughter of the late George Langston Weber, Sr. and Augusta Ambrose Weber.  She was the second oldest of seven children: Katherine Weber Dukes, Irene Weber Crosier, Langston and Lawrence Weber Jr. Raymond Weber and Delores Weber Bocage.

She was a devout Catholic, being a very faithful Christian all of her life.  She led by being a holy, very humble, and a prayerful person within the church and life itself.  She attended mass daily, when available, and was a long-standing member of “The Legion of Mary.”  There are many words that one could use to describe her; straightforward, insightful, very wise, generous, very grateful and a very good listener.  These attributes contributed to her being a dedicated loving mother and grandmother. 

Hilda Pharr believed in education and stressed to her children the importance of obtaining a higher education, which would lead them to a better quality of life.  When Hilda and her husband Jasper Pharr, Sr. moved to Cincinnati, she prayed that he would acquire better employment for him and his family.  These prayers were novenas to Saint Joseph, which not only gave Jasper one job, but two full-time jobs and the strength to work those jobs for nearly 40 years.  This allowed her to be a homemaker and volunteer in schools, church and sports activities.  She was able to travel to many places around the world and loved to cook.

Hilda had two children, Jasper N. Pharr Jr. and Betty Jean Francis (deceased).  She leaves behind 7 grandchildren: Kenneth (Pamela) Lewis, Christopher (Rita) Singletary, Eric and Kevin Pharr, Shanell (Jacky) Williams, and Ayesha and Quinton Pharr, along with a host of great and great-great grandchildren.  She is also survived by one brother, Raymond Weber and one sister, Delores Weber Bocage, in addition to a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
