April 2, 2002-May 9, 2021

Taylor Madison Weaver, 19, of Castor received the first hug of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ May 9, 2021.

A celebration of her life and her home-going will be Friday, May 14 at 11 a.m. at Rockett Funeral Home, Ringgold. Visitation will be from 5-9 p.m. Thursday, May 13 at the funeral home. Taylor’s earthly vessel will be laid to rest at Hathorn Cemetery, Ashland.

After entering this earthly world April 2, 2002, her spirit and her smile became her trademarks. The love she poured into others were the purest example of the love of Christ. Her love was unfiltered and all encompassing.

Her outer beauty was magnified all the more by her inner beauty. She would light up any room she entered and had the undeniable gift of leaving an impression on each life with which hers intersected.

Taylor loved life and loved living life. Whether it was riding her new ski boat on the lake or trekking Alaskan glaciers, she would never shy away from the next adventure. From board games around the family table or simply spending time with her friends, Taylor was sure to find her fun wherever she would be.  And recently, her fun was only magnified by her love and care for her dog, Pyper.

Taylor’s memory will forever be held by her parents, Karie and Chris Bradford and Chris and Casey Weaver; siblings Jake, Will and Chase Bradford and Caylee and Crystin Weaver. Her boyfriend, Dalton Parker will always have her heart.

Taylor’s infectious zeal has forever changed her grandparents, Tami “MawMaw” and Dooley “PawPaw” Litton, Ricky “Pop” and Sandy “Mimi” Hay, Penny “Nana” Weaver, and Chris “Poppy” Weaver Sr; great-grandparents, Linda “Grandama” and Charles “Poppa” Weaver; aunts and uncles, Kade and DeAnn Hay, Brittany and Jason E. Ebey, Bridget Litton and Landon and Mary Ann Weaver; cousins, Lauren and Dylan McCarthy, Taylor and Chris Williams, Rylie, Katherine, Abigail and Barrett Ebey, Bexley Litton, and Layla and Landon Weaver Jr.

She was preceded in death by her great-grandparents, Donnie and Patsy Coffey, Richard “Bo” and Agnes Hay, and James and Ann Davis.

In Taylor’s memory and in lieu of flowers, consider a donation to a charity focused on spreading the love of Jesus.

Baby girl, we’ll always love you more.
