Louise Curtis Weaver, 72, a native and resident of the Manila Community of Jackson departed this life January 15, 2022 at her home.
She was born May 24, 1949 to the parentage of the late John Curtis Sr. and the late Louise Hunt Curtis.
Ms. Weaver was educated in the Mobile County School System and graduated from Toulminville High School in 1969. She was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church in the Winn Community where she served as a Sunday School teacher. She enjoyed hunting and being involved in political events. Her most favorite thing to do was spend time with her grandchildren and prepare her renown sweet potato pies for her family to enjoy. She was an avid New Orleans Saints football fan. Ms. Weaver retired from the Transportation Department of the Clarke County Public School System as a bus driver.
She was loved by all who knew her and would gladly lend a kind and helping hand to anyone in need. She will also be remembered as a strong and independent lady who loved her children and family dearly.
Loving memories will be pondered in the hearts of her loving and devoted daughters, Ketrenia (Stephen Sr.) Crenshaw of Jackson and Winifred Weaver of Mobile; one brother, John Curtis Jr. of Youngstown, Ohio; five sisters, Lucy Ann Phillips, Etta Curtis, Mary Curtis, Jessie Davis, and Rose Cooke, all of Mobile; seven grandchildren, Ebony (Jonathan) Scott of Dothan, Demonzo McGinnis, Domonique McGinnis, Nicholas McGinnis, Carlton Cannon, and Carlyle Cannon, all of Mobile, Stephen Crenshaw Jr. of Jackson; three greatgrandchildren, Onyx Sullivan, Journee Scott, and Jackson Scott, all of Dothan; two godchildren, Calvin (Karon) Rankin and Kenya (Stan) Davis; two devoted as daughters, Laura (Ronald) Robinson, and LaGaylis (Ken) Harbuck; one devoted as a brother, Lawrence “Bully” (BeBe) Garrett; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and devoted friends too numerous to mention.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by six brothers, Ulysses Curtis, Edward Curtis, Earnest Curtis, Roosevelt Curtis, Lonnie Curtis, and Alvie Curtis, and three sisters, Willean James, Irene Davis, and Annie Mae Curtis.
In lieu of cut flowers, the family requests live fruit trees or fruit bushes in memory of their loved one.
