Marcia Lynn Weaver, 53, of Middletown, loving mother, daughter, sister, partner, aunt and friend, passed away Sunday, May 6, 2018 at Hartford Hospital. Marcia was born October 4, 1964 in Charleston, SC, daughter of Sterrie and Dorothea (Nault) Weaver. As a child of a Naval Captain, she was privileged to experience many different locations in the world, settling in CT in 1981, with the past 24 years as a resident of Middletown. Marcia earned her Bachelor’s degree from Southern CT State University, continuing her education at Fordham University, earning her Master’s degree in Social Work, as well as attaining her LSW license. She was a dedicated employee of the State of CT Dept. of Children and Families for the last 30 years where she was a Supervisor in the Foster Care program. Her work was a huge part of Marcia’s life, but not nearly as big as her devotion to her family. Aside from her work and family, Marcia loved collecting exotic marbles, Star Wars and Disney collectables.
Marcia will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by her two sons, Jonathan and Benjamin McCarthy-Weaver; her partner Catherine “Cathy” McCarthy, in Middletown, her father Sterrie Weaver and his wife Fran of Yorktown, VA., and her mother Dorothea (Nault) and husband Loy Bates of Newnan, GA. She also leaves her brother David and wife Chere in TX; her sister Sherry and husband Shawn in GA; her brother Sterrie in GA and brother Paul and wife April in KY, her aunt Fran and late husband Frank Guertin, uncle Steve and wife Diane Nault, nieces Katie and Brittany, and nephews Erik, Alexander and Donny as well as cousins Melissa Ainsley, Wanda, Ted, Emmit, and Braedon .
