Dr. Barbara Weber-Peavler
Gibson, GA – Dr. Barbara Patricia Weber-Peavler, 47, entered into rest Sunday evening, June 24, 2012 at her residence. Services will be held at 2:00PM on Saturday, June 30, 2012 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with the Rev. Stan Littleton officiating.
Barbara was one of six children born to Patricia Gresko Weber and Joseph David Weber in Philadephia PA. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Aurora University in Aurora IL, a Master of Education and Specialist of Education from Augusta State University, and her Doctor of Education from Georgia Southern University. She was an educator for over 25 yrs, teaching in IL and Richmond County School System as well as an associate professor at ASU. It was only fitting that Barbara “married” her love of sports—she was very athletic and into all sports—and children by being a PE teacher. She also loved being outside and gardening. She lived life to its fullest every day. Her generous, encouraging spirit will be greatly missed.
Barbara is also survived by her two sons, Mitchell and Tillman Peavler; three brothers, Dr. J. David Weber (Kristin) of O’Fallon IL, Matthew J. Weber (Lynsey) of Matthews NC, and Dr. Daniel M. Weber (Sarah) of Chicago IL; two sisters, Deborah L. Toth (Jim) of Streamwood IL and Michelle K. Culbreth of Boiling Springs SC; and 10 nieces and nephews.
The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home on Saturday, June 30, 2012 one hour prior to services—at 1:00PM.
For her loving support and care, the family extends their heartfelt gratitude and thanks to Regina Thompson, Barbara’s best friend and caregiver.
Because of the financial burden created from a prolonged illness, the family requests memorial contributions be made to James Funeral Home, PO Box 588, Wrens GA 30833.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
