BELFAST – Charlotte Ann (Donahue) Weaver went home to be with her Lord Jan. 31, 2013, in Belfast, where she was born Jan. 17, 1929.
A graduate of Crosby High School, class of 1946 and Westbrook Junior College, class of 1948, Charlotte then worked for many years as a legal secretary retired in 1984. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many in her community. A cherished and dedicated 60-year member of Belfast United Methodist Church, Charlotte had served in many capacities there. She was also a member of the Primrose Chapter Order of the Eastern Star; a former board member of Sweetser and the Methodist Conference Home, Rockland; a volunteer for Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County, and a member of the Hospital Aid of Waldo County General Hospital. Her generosity and spirit of involvement in the community was an inspiration to all. One friend commented that she was the most nonjudgmental person she had ever known. Charlotte had a heart as big as all outdoors and never met a person she didn’t like. Charlotte’s favorite thing to make for dinner was reservations. Her great joy was inviting friends and family to join her for a meal, either at one of her favorite local eateries or in the dining room at Penobscot Shores.
She was predeceased by her parents, Norman S. Donahue and Frances L. (Lancey) Donahue; her brother, Merrill L. Donahue; and Lewis “Gene”
Weaver. She is survived by her three children, Michael L. Weaver and his wife, Elinor, Mary W. Dutch and her husband, Jeffery, and Vickie W. Otis and her husband, Richard; and five grandchildren, Erin Payson and her husband, Kyle, Chad Otis and fiancée, April, Ryan Otis and his wife, Brooke, Jenny Oakes and husband, Ted Lovejoy, and Ryan Oakes. She is also survived by five great-grandchildren, Kayla and K.J. Payson, Thatcher and Jedsen Otis, and Emma Herring. The family would like to express their gratitude to her many care givers for the wonderful loving attention they gave Mom in her final months.
A celebration of her life will be held 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5, at Belfast United Methodist Church, 25 Mill Lane, with a time of fellowship afterward. If desired, memorial donations may be made to Belfast United Methodist Church, 25 Mill Lane, Belfast, ME 04915. Arrangements are with Long Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 9 Mountain St., Camden.
