Barbara Weaver

DANVILLE — Barbara Weaver, 83, of Danville, passed away Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013, in her home surrounded by her family.

She was born Aug. 3, 1930, in rural Indiana, to Otto E. and Mary F. Shedlock Miller.

She was married to William “Bill” Weaver on Aug. 21, 1953. He preceded her in death in 1991.

She is survived by her son, Kevin (Patsy) Weaver; three daughters, Kathy Camp, Lisa Lawhorn and Lori Fetters; her brothers and sisters, Evelyn Brown, Genny (Gerald) Roberts, Marilyn (Jim) Riefsteck, Loretta Riefsteck, Flora Belle (Dick) Knight, Frances Youmans, Rita (John) Shepherd, Nancy (Chet) Towner and Rosemary (Gerald) Moss; grandchildren, Melanie (Kevin) Siddens, Paul (Mandy) Weaver, Lesley (Kristi) Weaver, Pete Camp, Angie (Eric) Meyer, Keri (Mark) Colston, Devon Fetters, Morgan Fetters, Sandra Lawhorn, Joshua Lawhorn, James Lawhorn and Amber Lawhorn; numerous great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.

She is preceded in death by her sons-in-law, Bob Camp and Jerry Lawhorn; four brothers; one sister; and her parents, Otto and Mary.

Barbara was a family-orientated person. She loved her family. Barbara was an involved member of the Vermilion county 4-H program. She loved planning events for the young children of Vermilion County and she showed this by earning the Illinois 4-H Hall of Fame award in August 2013. Barbara truly cared for these children. She proved this with the 47 years of service she had with 4-H.

Barbara also enjoyed crafts; especially sewing. She would often go with her family to different craft fairs. They became a group of family crafters. Though Barbara was very busy with all of the Vermilion County events she was either attending or hosting, she would always find time to go bowling, or time to properly plant the flowers in her garden. Above all else, Barbara loved her family. She will be sorely missed by anyone who was fortunate enough to have known her.

A Celebration of Life for Barbara will begin at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, at Sunset Funeral Home. A visitation will be 4-8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7, at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, A Life Celebration Home, in Danville.

Contributions in Barbara’s name can be made to the Vermilion County 4-H Program. Condolences may be left at www.sunsetfuneralhome.com.
