Weakley died at 78
From our staff
Len Weakley, 78, died Feb. 23. He was a common face in the Ozark community and is seen above with Congressman Roy Blunt in November, 2005. Blunt paid special tribute to Weakley in recognition of his volunteer work on behalf of the area’s senior citizens.
While Weakley would be the first to tell you that he didn’t do anything alone, he successfully advocated for his contemporaries, Ozark’s senior citizens, and he accomplished much during the last several years.
Under his persuasive leadership, the county voters agreed to the Christian county Senior Services Fund Tax in 2001. That tax helped make possible a new 10,000 square foot center that serves hot meals, accommodates recreational and learning activities and other activities beneficial to seniors.
Weakley also secured a grant that brings the center’s kitchen up to restaurant standards. That means that when the plan in successfully implemented, diners will eat freshly-cooked food rather than frozen entrees that were prepared off-site and reheated.
Carolyn Harris, administrator at the Senior Center, said in an earlier interview that Weakley was one of the hardest working people she knew.
“I don’t know where to start,” she said. “He has been such and attribute to the community. I have been amazed at hoe hard he work(ed). Since the short time I’ve been hear, he’s accomplished more than any one person I have ever known.”
“He just really went all out to make sure the seniors were taken care of in this community.”
Because of Weakley’s involvement, Congressman Roy Blunt in Ozark for the ribbon cutting for the fitness center at the Ozark Junior High School,. Took time out Nov. 29 to recognize Weakley’s accomplishments.
“Len epitomizes someone who is willing to put forth hard work and selfless dedication to get good things accomplished,” Blunt said then.
Blunt presented Weakley with a personal letter of appreciation and gratitude for what he’s done on behalf of the citizens of Christian County.
“Armies of volunteers create extraordinary events but frequently they can be traced back to the example and leadership on one person with extraordinary vision,” the letter read. “Often that person is quiet and self-effacing but also courageous and dependable.”
At Weakley’s request, there was no funeral service.

Weaver, Jane 1890 - 4 Jul 1905 CCR 6 Jul 1905
A Sad Accident
Wile the merry-making was at its height in Ozark last Tuesday, the word went over the grounds that some one had been drowned. The crowd was so large and rumors so conflicting that it was hoped the reports were untrue. But hope was given up when eye witnesses began to tell of the accident. One of Aunt Dilsey Weaver’s granddaughters, Jane Weaver, in crossing the temporary bridge across the river, fell in. The current was so swift that she was thrown off her feet, and before she could regain them, the water had carried her beyond her depth, and before aid could reach her, she sank for the last time. There are conflicting reports as to how she happened to fall from the bridge. One rumor is that her hat blew off and she jumped in to save it. Some who saw it think she lost her balance and fell. The occurrence saddened the remainder of the day and cast a gloom on the spirits of all, especially on those who knew the unfortunate girl. The body was found Wednesday morning by Dick Bryant, near the form below the grounds. The program committee will buy the coffin and help with the funeral expenses.
