Obituary

George C. Weatherston left Mother Earth on Sunday, March 13 after a short illness. George was born in Sidney, Montana on March 2, 1934. He graduated from Sidney High school in 1952 and received a BA degree from the University of Montana in Missoula and became a lifelong Griz fan. In June 1956 he was drafted in the army and served in Bamberg, West Germany with the 10th Infantry Division. When on furlough he traveled to different cities and countries in Europe.

From 1959 to 1996 he was employed by Job Service ND living in Williston, Valley City, and Fargo. After retiring he volunteered at the Fargo Public Library and for eleven years at Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge near Detroit Lakes, MN. In 2004 he was honored as the volunteer of the year at Tamarac. He loved nature and was a lifetime conservationist. George was a long-time member of First Lutheran Church and Lake Agassiz Rock Club.

George is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughter Samantha, son-in-law Paul Rabie, grandson Lukas Weatherston George, and a granddaughter on the way, of Laramie, Wyoming. Other survivors include cousins Odessa Eddie of Belgrade, Montana, cousin Keith Boyd of Umpqua, OR, nephews and niece, longtime pal Bob Lee of Sidney, Montana, and the Hardee’s and Family Fare coffee drinkers.

George’s ashes will be scattered from the top of Medora Cemetery. When someone asks where George is buried, “the answer my friend, is blowin’ in the wind” as the ballad says. Thanks to good friend Ed Simonson, Fargo, who sparked the idea for using the song.

A memorial service will be 11 am Saturday, March 19, at First Lutheran Church in Fargo.

Memorials are preferred to the Badlands Conservation Alliance, Dorothy Day House, or a charity of the donor’s choice.

Arrangements entrusted to the care of Boulger Funeral Home and Celebration of Life Center, Fargo.

    I’ve known the Weatheston family for many years starting when Sam and I met in jr high through Camp Fire Girls. George was, and I’m sure still is, one of the kindest and gentlest souls. I’m so glad I had the honor of knowing him for so many years. My heart aches for the family and all he knew him. He was a rare bird.
