LaFaye Weaver was born on December 18th, 1952 at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, GA to Alice Isreal and the late Joseph B. Isreal. She was the eldest of four children: JoAnn Beasley, Joseph B. Isreal II and Darryl Isreal.

LaFaye was educated in the Atlanta Public Schools System, graduating from West Fulton High School in the class of 1970. She was a very active student participating in the Dance Club, French Club, Vocational Training, The Pep Squad, Student Council, Red Cross, El Matadors and the Future Business Leaders of America.

During high school, LaFaye worked at Kmart as a customer service representative. One interesting story she’s shared about that job is chasing a robber out the door when he snatched her register. Fortunate for him he got away, but this gives you an idea that although she was a kind soul, she was not a push over. After high school she worked in data entry for First National Bank in downtown Atlanta. She then went to work for Gulf Oil doing data entry; she was a project manager for Scientific Atlanta; she was a board member for Cuffie Group Home Care, and later retired after 10 years as a school bus driver for the Dekalb County School District. She also moonlighted as a certified tax consultant for the IRS, and she was a licensed minister and evangelist.

LaFaye was married to Obie Weaver of Atlanta, GA for over 16 years. They met in 2002 through a family member and he stole her heart on their first date by doing what he does best, cooking seafood. Everyone knows how much she absolutely loved seafood. They married the following year, February 22, 2003.

LaFaye enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, especially her grandkids; listening to gospel music; eating out at various restaurants, watching People’s Court, the Big Bang Theory and old westerns. She was a loving soul, kind, honest, caring, giving and would help anyone in need.

LaFaye was called to heaven on May 20, 2019 at 5:20pm. She leaves behind her loving husband, Obie; Mother, Alice; two daughters, Kenya and Crystal (Robert); three sons Obie (Trina), Jerry, and Mario (Patrice); 12 grandchildren; one sister JoAnn (Anthony); two brothers Joseph and Darryle; and a host of other relatives and friends.

The family has established a GoFundMe page for those who are interested in contributing towards funeral expenses.

To the Isreal family,

After reading Mrs. Isreal's obituary, its apparent that she had to be loved by many. I hope Acts 24:15, John 5:28,29, and Revelation 21:4 brings your family comfort.
