Elizabeth Weaver was the 98th justice on the Michigan Supreme Court, and the fifth woman to serve on the state’s highest court. She was elected to the court in November 1994, replacing Justice Robert P. Griffin who had retired. Both resided in the Traverse City area, having been born elsewhere (Griffin in the Detroit area and Weaver in New Orleans, Louisiana). Justice Weaver’s death on April 22nd followed Justice Griffin’s by just six days.
Rest in peace Justice Weaver.
