Please share a memory of Margaret to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Margaret Weaver was born on March 9, 1941 in Catawba County NC to the late William and Morene Perry. After high school, she married her childhood crush, Roby Weaver, of Boone NC on August 26, 1961. She graduated from Appalachian State University with Bachelors and Master's degrees in Education, and went on to teach almost her entire career at Parkway Elementary School. While there, she touched the lives of hundreds of students, many of whom have remained close with her to this day. She spent her retirement years working a part-time job at Swiss Mountain Village in Blowing Rock and traveling to many places across the United States with Roby.
