Dorothy B. “Dottie” Weaver, 95, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Friday, Aug. 19, 2016.
She was born on Nov. 24, 1920, in Lily, Ky., to her parents, Frederick Bowling and Nancy Lee Ila Wilhoit Bowling. She was the next to the youngest of 14 children, all of whom preceded her in death. She is also preceded in death by her husband, retired U.S. Marine Corps Master Sergeant Russell R. Weaver and a great-granddaughter, Bethany Rose Beamon.
Left to cherish her memory are two sons, Allan Wayne Weaver and wife Cheryl of Virginia Beach and Donald E. Weaver and wife Patricia of Stephens City, Va.; four grandchildren, James Anthony Beamon, Tracy Weaver Martin, Christopher Sean Weaver and Kristin Weaver Bell; and 10 great-grandchildren, Elyse Kamen, Gregory Collier, Chelsea Beamon, Adam Kamen, Rachael Weaver, Sela Goldberg, Zoe Bell, Piper Beamon, Jonathan Beamon and Sarah Martin. She is also survived by many adoring nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, mostly from Kentucky and Ohio, but extending across the United States.
Dottie had a charming, sweet and witty personality. Everyone who met her loved her.
Many thanks to the members and staff of King’s Grant Baptist Church for their loyal support and attention given to her. Thanks also to her many friends at First Colonial Inn, Holland House, Sentara Village of Norfolk and Medi Home Health & Hospice for their friendship, help and kindness shown to her over the years. Lastly, words cannot express the gratitude we feel for Dr. Ramon Matawaran and his staff. His expertise and knowledge kept her with us for many more years than we could have imagined. Thank you all!
A funeral service will be conducted at 2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, 2016, at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Great Neck Chapel by Rev. Daniel Cooper of King’s Grant Baptist Church. Burial will follow at Princess Anne Memorial Park. The family will receive friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service.
