Hjordis Joy Weston
1930 - 2021
9-18-1930 - 11-04-2021 Hjordis Joy Anderson Weston was born in Oregon City, Oregon on Sept 18, 1930, the youngest child of Frank and Hjordis Bang Anderson. The family moved to San Pedro in 1936. Mom kept active as a volunteer at Global Gifts (unicef), San Pedro Historical Society, Mueller House, and many more! Joy married Donovan Weston in August 1952, together they had 4 children. Mom worked for the Los Angeles Unified School District as a "Cafeteria Lady", a job she truly loved. When mom retired she traveled the world with Elder Hostel, she visited many countries and enjoyed them all! Joy was met in Paradise by her Husband Donovan, daughter Paula and sons Donny and Kurt and great granddaughter Sofia Dorian. Joy is survived by daughter Kimberley (Steve), grandchildren Jessica and Steven (Pepper) and great grandchildren Nathaniel, Makayla, Jeremiah, Anthony, Miah, Bria, Akira, Steven (Huggy), Lillee and Stanley (coming soon) as well as many nieces and nephews and dear friends Joyce Byrd, Sandy, Christian and Tara Sampson and her Church family whom she dearly loved. I would like to give special recognition to her great grandchildren Nathaniel and Makayla whose loving care enabled mom to remain at home throughout her battle with Alzheimers. Memorial service will be held on November 27th, 11 am at San Pedro United Methodist Church, 560 W 6th st (corner of 6th and Grand St). In Lieu of Flowers, Mom would appreciate donations to the Alzheimers Foundation, San Pedro United Methodist Church Youth Fund or a charitable donation of your choice. "Treasured in our hearts you'll stay, until we meet again some day"

Kim and family; I am so very sorry for the loss of Joy!!! I remember all of my days, birth to adulthood, and Joy being a big part of that! She was my Sunday school teacher, mentor and then friend. I will always cherish my memories of her, her great smile, colorful outfits and genuine love for everything Grandview and then the big church on 6th. I remember seeing her at the voting polls and all of the church bazaars. Great memories! Much love and prayers are being sent to the entire family.

My Auntie Joy was the spiritual leader of our families. I still fondly remember vacation bible school and my time at Camp Clear Creek with my cousin Paula. Her marriage to my Uncle Don was one of the influences on my own. She never had a harsh word and her personality would light up the rooms that she entered. She will be missed, however knowing she is with her family and our Lord in heaven gives me great comfort. My family will be praying for all of my Aunts family.

Kim, God be with you and family as you all grieve your loss. Joy was a light in my life. Her beautiful face and her loving spirit has touched and inspired me in my spiritual journey. She will be missed by UMW, Rachel Circle and ME. I love her and I love her family. God bless. Pam

I remember Joy very fondly from when I was a member of Grandview United Methodist Church. She was a driving force who took charge of the United Methodist Women and volunteered along with members of her family at every activity, dinner, Pancake Breakfast, and Ad Council(Administrative Council) meeting as well as other events. There was not a single event that Joy helped coordinate or attend. Anything and everything she was a part of. When Grandview closed and everyone started going to First United Methodist Church, she still was a workhorse for everything that happened. She was a fellow San Pedro High School and long time friend of my Great Aunt Virginia(Deceased). She and Ginny would get together quite often for lunches and other activities. My condolences go out to the entire Weston, Goebel, Klungreseter, and every member or her extended family and friends. Joy is seated with her heavenly father and reunited with her daughters, sons, husband, and all other members of her family and friends. We'll always love you and remember you Joy. God bless.
