Our beloved one was a loving sister and cherished friend to many throughout her life. As a teacher, she truly loved her profession and was thoroughly and compassionately devoted to her students, their achievements and their welfare.
Laurine Louise Weaver, affectionately known by family and friends as "Lollie" and "La" was the youngest of three children born to John Henry Weaver, Jr. and Laurine Singleton in Atlanta, Georgia on August 10, 1939. At an early age it was evident that she was a bright and talented child who exhibited her love for singing and dancing, which would continue throughout her life. As a student at Our lady of Lourdes Catholic School and later, as a member and soloist of the Booker T. Washington High School Glee Club. She soon developed into quite a beautiful singer.
During her collegiate days, Lollie began to refine her ability as a member of the Spelman College Glee Club, and later with the choir at Virginia State College (now Virginia State University) from which she earned her baccalaureate degree.
Her spiritual nurturing began early on and remained firmly grounded throughout her life. Growing up during an era when the Sunday afternoon "church program" was a popular entity, one could often hear Lollie perform (always accompanied by her brother Lawrence) they were lovingly dubbed "Lollie and Lonnie". Fortunately, she was a part of a large family deeply rooted in the church and it's activities. Atlanta's Butler Street C.M.E. Church, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, The Love Circle Truth Center, and others, all contributed significantly toward this spiritual growth. She was particularly proud of her involvement at the time of her death in her Bible Study group with her extended family under the leadership of Mr. Michael Gaither, Sr.
Professionally Lollie soared highly with the eagles in the field of education. She enjoyed a very successful career with the Atlanta Public School system. Serving as an elementary school teacher, and eventually, as an administrator. She spent her final years as assistant Principal of A. D. Williams Elementary School. Lollie's retirement from APS would be short-lived. She became instrumental in the establishment of the Hillside Chapel and Truth Center Academy; later, along with her dear friend and co-worker, Mrs. Gurtha Gaither. She became a co-founder of the School of Aah Buh Kuh. She remained active in this endeavor until the on-set of her illness and eventual demise. Laurine Weaver departed this life in Atlanta on July 8, 2007. As Lollie leaves this earthly home to enter eternal rest, she leaves among those to cherish her legacy and memory her devoted brother Lawrence, nieces, nephews and a host of relatives and devoted friends.
Lollie was truly faithful-to God, her family, her students and her friends. She will be immensely missed.
