Helen Frances Weaver
July 18, 1938 ‒ February 23, 2018
Mount Vernon, Ohio
Helen Frances (Morey) Weaver passed away Friday, February 23, 2018, at the Medical City McKinney Hospital.
She was born July 18, 1938 in Mt. Vernon, OH, to the late Carl and Hattie (Elkins) Morey. She grew up in Mt. Vernon, OH and graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1956. God gifted her with a voice that touched your soul. Her First-Soprano voice brought tears to those that heard her sing. In her Sophomore year she sang in the 9th & 10th Grade Girls Glee Club. In her Junior and Senior years she sang with the Senior Choir. In these young years of her life, she won a vocal contest that she spoke proudly of. In her later years, she helped lead the Holland Road Baptist Church in Virginia Beach, VA to many award-winning vocal contests where she lived with her family in the 1970’s. It brought her great joy to be chosen to sing in the Messiah in Norfolk, VA at this time. One of her interests included bowling where she received honors in the 200 Club and 500 Club Tenpins as well as the Women’s International Bowling League Congress (WIBC) in 1973-1974.
She is survived by her husband of 27 years, William L. Weaver; two sisters; Shirley (Sherman) Tomes of Mt. Vernon, OH and Linda (Larry) Tomes of Mt. Vernon, OH. Her three children; son Terry (Shannon) McKay of McKinney, TX, two daughters; Brenda (Douglas) Eshelman of Fulton, MD and Pamela (William) Rollyson of Mt. Airy, MD. Her four grandchildren; Evan and Christina Eshelman, and Brian and Kaitlyn Rollyson.
Besides her parents, Helen was preceded in death by her brother; Robert Morey and sisters; Alfreda (Morey) Bond, Marcella Morey, Margaret (Morey) Zimmerman, and Nancy (Morey) Morehouse.
