A native of Tulsa, Peggy Roberts Weaver graduated from Tulsa Edison High School in 1972.
She worked in Tulsa until marrying and moved to Coweta where she started her family.
Life changes brought the need for furthering her education. Weaver graduated from Southern Nazarene University in 1998 with her master's degree in the Science of Management.
She used her education to further her career at Williams Communication and left there in 2008.
Eventually, Weaver worked for Cherokee Nation as a supervisor for the marketing group at the Ramona Casino. After four year there, weaver left there and retired to the Grand Lake area, purchasing a home in Bernice.
Weaver has been a member of the Brush and Palette Art Gallery since 2013. This is her third year reigning as the president of the gallery.
Her medium is polymer clay. She likes to shape her clay and blend colors of clay together to “form” her art. Sometimes it feathers, other times it just circles or squares. She builds onto the clay to give it a 3D look.
As being part Cherokee, Weaver was able to show some of her art in Cherokee Heritage Center during one the Trail of Tears event as well as a Homecoming Show.
Weaver is involved in the communities around her. She is the music director at her church, Bar-none Cowboy church in Afton.
She is on the board of trustees for the town of Bernice, and is the president of the Senior/Community Center in Bernice, helping to organize and serve their weekly Wednesday lunches.
Weaver is also part of the task force that supports the Grove Springs Cultural District and its ventures. Weaver teaches art during the school year at the Grove Country Day School and occasionally does art projects at the Grove Library.
With her “leftover” time, she and her husband like to ride on their Harleys, go boating on Grand Lake, or just go cruising around on other fun running vehicles.
