Dr. Rose Marie Gonzalez Weaver

February 25, 1955 — March 14, 2024


Dr. Rose Marie Gonzalez Weaver, a beloved figure in the community of Uvalde, Texas, passed away at her residence on March 14, 2024. She was a dedicated family medicine practitioner whose compassionate care touched the lives of many.

 Born in Beeville, Texas on February 25, 1955, to her parents, Pedro and Estella (Perez) Gonzalez.  She later met and married Robert Roscoe Weaver, having four children with him, Josette Monique Rosenberg, Rhapsody Rose Weaver, Damien Christopher Weaver,  and Rhiannon Nicole Urbanczyk.

Dr. Weaver pursued her academic passions with fervor. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas before obtaining her doctor's degree in osteopathic medicine from the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine where she met Dr. John Garnet Preddy, they later had four children together, Ryan Scott Quentin Preddy, Mandolynn Marie Preddy, Meghann Ginger Preddy, and Desmond Johnathan Preddy. Her journey continued as she completed her residency in family medicine through the same institution in Fort Worth, Texas in 1993.

Her professional career led her to practice family medicine in Uvalde, opening Family Practice Center of Uvalde in July 1994 with her former husband, Dr. John Garnet Preddy, where she made a lasting impact on her patients and colleagues alike. Her dedication to healing and wellness was unwavering, earning her respect and admiration within the community.

Dr. Rose Marie Gonzalez Weaver was a dynamic character. She was known particularly for her infectious laugh and her dark humor. She really knew how to elicit a chuckle; even if it was bewildering at times, it was nonetheless her special way of getting you to lighten up (she disliked pretension).

She was a unique being; spiritual and insightful, she believed in the supernatural—the things unseen and beyond human comprehension. She believed there were answers in the Church and in the tarot cards.

She lived in a world of her own creation and welcomed people into her world and into her heart. Touching the lives of many and always offering a hand or words of encouragement to those who might need it. She was fond of lengthy, late-night conversations on the phone, during which she would dispense advice or just reflect on the cosmic absurdity of life. At times, it was a surreal, quasi-magical experience to be in her presence. A physician by occupation, a confidant by practice, Rose was a healer in many senses of the word. 

She had blue-green eyes that were so intense and abundant in beauty, you could feel the power and strength that resided in her soul. Mother, Grandmother, and a friend to many. She was a traveler-her favorite place to visit was Las Vegas and had just gotten her passport, she always wanted to visit Paris and Salem. She was a painter, a collector of oddities and curiosities-she collected dragons, Betty boop, porcelain dolls, paintings, and so much more. She was a writer and a reader-she always talked about making a book of her life and she was an avid gambler who won many jackpots. She was ambitious and creative; she had many hobbies, one of those being shopping. She loved animals, from raising monkeys to squirrels to peacocks, and much more. Her oldest being her female deer Feline who she had for 23 years, she leaves behind her 6 shitzu dogs, one of them being her favorite named Sammy. She was a true character, outspoken and theatrical. Subtlety was not one of her defining characteristics.

Tenacious, brave, and assertive; like her namesake flower, Rose, was not without thorns. She was a force to be reckoned with.

 Dr. Weaver cherished time spent with her loving family and friends. She is survived by her children: Josette Monique Rosenberg, Rhapsody Rose Weaver, Damien Christopher Weaver, Rhiannon Nicole Urbanczyk, Ryan Scott Quentin Preddy, Mandolynn Marie Preddy, Meghann Ginger Preddy, and Desmond Johnathan Preddy. 

Her legacy further extended to her grandchildren: Alec Simon Garza, Tiffany Gabrielle Rosenberg, Kristen Mikayla Rosenberg, Joshua Henry Rosenberg, Jacob Max Rosenberg, Mystic Rose Weaver, Dream Marie Weaver, Roscoe James Weaver, Belle Josephine Weaver, Genevie Nicole Urbanczyk, Rowan Noble Weaver-Preddy, Silas Jonathan Weaver-Preddy, and Leo Johnathan Maxwell.

Dr. Rose Marie Gonzalez Weaver will also be deeply missed by her surviving siblings: Lupita Salemke and Julie G Medrano; as well as her brother Johnny Gonzalez.

She is proceeded in death by her parents; Pedro and Estella Gonzalez.
