Lee Anna Weaver
October 20, 1962 – March 12, 2020
Lee Anna Weaver, 57, of Virginia Beach, VA, formally of Charleston, WV, was suddenly and unexpectedly summoned by God from her home on Thursday March 12, 2020.
Born and raised in Charleston WV, Lee enjoyed a close and loving family. She was also blessed with wonderful grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. As a teenager in the ‘70s, Lee, and her many friends regularly spent evenings at their favorite hangout, the local roller rink. She also worked at a popular local restaurant.
Shortly after marrying her husband, she left Charleston WV for the challenging and rewarding life as a military spouse. Her travels took her both near and far. As her children grew, Lee was actively involved with their education and many activities. She led such activities as Little League Football Cheerleading Squads while in Texas and in Japan she organized youth bowling leagues. Lee also worked as a substitute teacher for Department of Defense Dependent Schools.
Early in her career, Lee had a variety of jobs such as bookkeeper, clerk and manager for several companies and also held multiple positions with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service. With her broad retail experience, Lee became a career manager in the military marketing and resale industry marketing nationally known brands exclusively within on-base military retail outlets. She held positions such as Bay Area District Manager in California and Norfolk Area District Manager after moving to Virginia. Lee went on to become the Northeast Regional Manager with an area of responsibility that spanned 20 states. Her most recent position was Area Supervisor, marketing to military commissaries and exchanges in Southern Virginia, the Carolinas and Northern Georgia.
Throughout her career, she received numerous accolades and awards from her employers. Lee was also recognized by supporting organizations for her outstanding service to the military community. If Lee had a motto, it would have been, ‘Family First’ and had likely learned it from her parents. She believed that family was most important and encouraged friends and colleagues alike to always take care of loved ones before other obligations. Even with her long and adventurous career, it was no secret that Lee’s most prized and loved role in her entire life was that of being a wife, a mother and a grandmother, for which she will forever be cherished.
Lee is survived by Roland M. Weaver, her husband of over forty years; her three adult children, Jonathan M. Weaver and his wife Jeanette of Tokyo, Japan, Anna L Tyson and her husband Billy of Eglin AFB, FL, and Amber M, Murrell and her husband Charles of Middleburg, FL; seven grandchildren; her parents, Gilbert L. and Goldie M. Jacobs of Charleston WV; and siblings Angela L. Ferris and James G. Jacobs, both also of Charleston WV.
In accordance with Lee’s wishes, a small private event for the immediate family was held Monday, March 16, 2020 at Smith & Williams Funeral Home in Virginia Beach prior to her cremation. Her ashes will remain with her husband until a day in which they may be interred together. In lieu of flowers and/or other condolences, at the request of her family and in memory of Lee’s deep love for her grandchildren, please consider a donation to Helping Enrich Autistic Lives at: https://www.healautismnow.org, or any charity that directly supports Autism research.

Many years I have worked retail for the military and their are but a few that I can say that I truly liked working with. Lee is one of those few. She always greeted me with a smile and asked how I was doing. May her family know what an impact Lee had on so many people and she will be forever missed. ♥️

I remember when you came to us from California and working for Sarvis. You were a gift to us in the industry. Always a smile, hello and how are you doing. You were hard working, loyal and a problem solving. Your love of family was so very strong and fierce. The news hit us all like a thunderbolt and broke our hearts. May peace be with you. My condolences to your family and prayers for their peace.
