Corrine S. Sahlberg

Corrine S. Sahlberg joined her husband, Elmer J Sahlberg, in heaven on April 5, 2018. She was 96, and passed peacefully at home with her four children, Dave, Dale, Evelyn, and Esther, able to say goodbye. She is also survived by seven grandchildren.

Corrine and Elmer went to Thailand in 1950 as missionaries under the Christian and Missionary Alliance. They were true missionary pioneers, living a small town called Nongkai, in a home with no electricity or running water, for eight years. Elmer traveled a lot in those years to remote villages, and Corrine taught both women and children Bible studies in Nongkai and raised each child until they went off to boarding school, originally in South Vietnam and later in Malaysia.

Even though they retired, Elmer continued to make 13 more trips back to Thailand, while Corrine stayed at home and at age 70, wrote a book about her adventures as a missionary wife, called “Please Leave Your Shoes at the Door.” Her son, Dale, created a website for it which is at www.ecsahlberg.com. It contains many chapters of her book, and copies of many of her videos on being a missionary and Thai life and culture, created from the thousands of photographs she took as a missionary.

She touched many lives, counseling many, and teaching others how to write books, and teaching English as a second language until 94. Her work will live on through her book and website and in the memories of her children and many others.

There will be a time of gathering and remembering on Sunday April 8, 2018 from 3:00 – 5:00 PM at the funeral home.

Thomas Lee Weber, Jr.

Thomas Lee Weber, Jr., aged 58, passed away peacefully at home with loving family at his side. Born 12-12-59 in Columbus, Ohio, Tommy, as he was affectionately called by his sisters, was an energetic, fun-loving person. He loved to boat and fish, and was happiest when he was on the water or walking at Honeymoon Island with his soulmate and loving wife Patricia. Together for over 30 years, they traveled and loved staying in the mountains of Gatlinburg, TN and going to St. Augustine, FL with Beverley and Henry, mother and step-father. Patricia will miss him terribly. Tom was an avid motorcyclist and loved riding his Harley Davidson whenever he could. As his illness set in, he would sit on his bike in the garage, dreaming of his next ride and the sites he would see as he coasted down the highway. Most importantly, he was a kind man. He forged friendships with everyone he met and would give the shirt off his back if asked. He is preceded in death by his step-son Robert Brooksbank; brother William Frank (Bird); mother and step-father Beverley (Neff) and Henry Casa; grandparents Zeta and Clarence Neff and Lillian and Otto Weber. He is survived by his loving wife Patricia Weber (Brooksbank), brother-in-law James Brooksbank; father and step-mother Thomas Weber, Sr. and Beverly Bain; sisters Deborah Weber (Lisa Dahlberg), Belinda Scaggs, Cynda Shay; and many beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins. Tommy’s family would like to say a special thank you to Greg Kirk for supporting him all of his life, through his trials and tribulations, and remaining a constant friend. Also, thank you to Denise, Jimmy, Mike, and Ruth who so supported Patricia at Tom’s end of life transition. No funeral services will be held, but a memorial and spreading of ashes will take place in the future.
