Naverta (Nanny) Elliott

Naverta Jane (Weber) a.k.a. Nanny, age 83, passed away peacefully at her home on August 2, 2021.  She was born January 9, 1938, in Hope, KS to Viola (Gruber) Weber and Jack Weber. She attended Hope High School, graduating in 1956.  She was united in marriage to Dick Elliott on December 9th, 1956, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Lyons Creek.  Naverta was a lifetime member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Lyons Creek, where she taught Sunday school for many years. This young couple established their first home together in Hope, KS.  There, they were blessed with and raised four children.  Naverta is survived by her loving children; Blake (Roberta) Elliott, Bobbi (Darel) Anderson, Todd (Kelli) Elliott, and Jan (Jayce) Krause.  She is also survived by her grandchildren Zachary (Christina) Krause, Tyler Anderson, Miranda (Greg) Wald, Koby Elliott, Jacob Krause, Cortni (Caleb) Kruse, Zeb (Kilynn) Elliott, Clint (Kaitlyn) Elliott, Tanner (Kasey) Anderson, and Kade Elliott; great grandchildren Cayden West, Caryss West, Ellary Krause, Halen Wald, Brayden Elliott, Abby Elliott, Quinn Kruse, Kannen Elliott, Kycen Elliott, Kamryn Anderson and Kreyton Anderson; and her siblings Joan Kerr, Linda (Donald) May, and Denny (Terry) Weber.  She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Dick, brother Lawrence Weber and brother-in-law David Kerr.  Naverta really enjoyed life.  She had a 43-year career being a school bus driver for the Hope school system.  She loved going to all the sporting events and her summer women’s trip to Colorado.  One of her fondest memories was when four of her grandsons played on the 2003 State Championship football team together.  She proudly drove them to their games.  All of the grandchildren and great grandchildren loved coming to her house to swim and eat her delicious meals.  Naverta loved her swimming pool.  She was known to give the kids money to go to the corner store for flavor ices in the summer.  Naverta’s family will gather with friends on Thursday August 5th from 6-8 p.m. at the Yazel – Megli Funeral Home, Herington.  Her funeral service will be held on Friday August 6th at 10 a.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Lyons Creek.  She will be laid to rest in the St. John’s Lutheran, Lyons Creek Cemetery.  Memorial donations in her name may be directed to Hospice and Home Health Care of Dickinson County or the Lyons Creek Cemetery Fund.  Please sign her online guestbook and leave a memory of Naverta at www.ymzfh.com.

The girls and I are so sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of Christmas at her house and eating her yummy Christmas sugar cookies with the red hots. I am sorry we missed the service. Naverta will be missed dearly.

Rest in peace dear Naverta, Hope High's 1956 Homecoming Queen. I cherish the memory of placing that crown on your head and kissing that lovely cheek. Such good times we had back then in those days of heaven.

Sorry to hear of your mother's passing. When I would see her at games at other schools after I moved to the Whitewater area, she always spoke to me and caught me up on her kids and grandkids. May God give you comfort, peace, and great memories as you celebrate her life. Cleta Lemon Smith
