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"
