On Sunday, August 2, 2020, Sharrie Kay (Sloan) Weaver of Italy, TX passed away peacefully at the age of 63 from a long, brave battle with MSA-C.

She received her bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Texas at Dallas and was passionate about helping others.

Eventually she returned to work and spent the last 10 years of her career as a Special Education teacher for Waxahachie and Avalon ISD. Sharrie’s career of service and dedication to her family are a testament to a life spent putting others before herself. She will be remembered as a kind and compassionate person, a loving mother and grandmother, an adoring wife, and a strong person of faith.
