Frankie K. Weaver April 16, 1940 - April 18, 2019

Frankie K. Weaver, 79, Marion, went to be with the Lord in her home at 5:07 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, 2019. Born in Elwood on April 16, 1940, Frankie was the daughter of Frank M. Hevron and Lilly “Catherine” Hevron-Ewing. On April 2, 1977, she married her loving husband, Charles R. Weaver, and he preceded her in death on May 7, 2016.

Frankie retired from Thomson Consumer Electronics (formerly RCA) in 2000 after 34 years of service. She was an avid sports fan and, in her younger years, played softball. She especially enjoyed watching the Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears, and Chicago Cubs. She was actively involved at the YMCA in Marion. Most of all, though, Frankie loved spending time with her family and making memories with them.

She is survived by her children: Marlena (Joel) Brown, Marion; Yael (David) Benlev, Israel; Walter (Elizabeth) Manis, KY; and Cathy (Pedro) Rivas, Puerto Rico; grandchildren: Robert Hiatt, Huntington; Anna (Lonnie) Upshaw, Upland; Abbie (Sean) Davis, Shelbyville; Nathan DeLaporte, Gas City; Kristopher Rivas, Puerto Rico; Ashli Rivas, Marion; and David (Harley) Sappenfield, CA; 7 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild; sisters: Sheila (Phil) Morgan and Grace (Jerry) Werline, both from Elwood; and many nieces and nephews.

The family will receive visitors from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, at Needham-Storey-Wampner Funeral Service, North Chapel, 1341 N. Baldwin Ave., Marion, IN.

Immediately following the time of visitation, a funeral service to celebrate Frankie’s life will begin at noon. Burial will take place at Marion National Cemetery.
