Melody Cay Weaver, 58, of Seymour took the hand of Jesus her Savior and went home at 3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13, 2017, with her loving family and the caring staff of the Waters of Scottsburg by her side.
Born Aug. 24, 1958, in Seymour, she was the daughter of the Rev. William M. “Bill” and Clara Mae Mosley Weaver, both of whom survive.
She graduated with the class of 1977 from Seymour High School. She served in the dietary department at Lutheran Community Home for 20 years and at Jackson Park Nursing Home for 10 years. Everyone would say that Melody had a warm, loving spirit and whoever met her was a better person afterward. She loved generously sharing of herself with others, especially children. She was famous for doting on her nieces and nephews and taking them out to eat and to the movies. Melody was very patriotic and loved worshiping her Lord. She loved missions and never missed the opportunity to ask if you knew the Lord. She’d smile and say, “If you do, you’ll go to heaven.”
Melody had many interests. She loved sports. Her favorite teams were IU basketball, the Dallas Cowboys, Indiana Pacers and Cincinnati Reds. Her favorite NASCAR driver was Mark Martin. She loved music and loved singing all the way from the Seymour High School choir to the Reddington Christian Church choir. She still was singing up until just a day before she passed. Melody was a member and faithful volunteer at Seymour Christian Church. She had a strong faith in the Lord and was always willing to volunteer and support the church in so many ways, especially giving to missions. She was so proud that her nephew, Eric, is serving with his wife, Caitlin, in Kenya.
Besides her parents, Melody will be greatly missed by a sister, Marsha (David) Branco; brothers, David (Julie) Weaver and Dan (Amy) Weaver; her nieces and nephews, Kristal (Nate) Biehle, Adrienne Pitts, Neel Weaver, Eric (Caitlin) Pitts, Alicia (Caleb) Vance, Hannah Weaver and Sam Weaver; and her great-nieces and great-nephews, Taylor, Hayden, Desmond and Ryder.
The funeral service will be at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Seymour Christian Church, 915 Kasting Road, in Seymour.
Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and from 9:30 a.m. until time of service Wednesday at the church.
Memorials may be made to Johnson University, CMFI (specify Eric Pitts) or Seymour Christian Church mission fund.
