Loving Wife, Mother, Sister, Aunt, Friend


Carrie Weaver Engelbrecht

March 31, 1955 - July 6, 2019

To know Carrie, was to know joy. Beloved, she delighted in the many roles she played: wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend, and teacher. It was by providence that she was born on March 31, 1955 in Pomona, California, but it was her sense of adventure that made Bay Village her home for over 37 years. When the love of her life, John, moved them from the west coast to the Erie coast, she came willingly, thinking it would only be for a few years. And yet, she couldn't help but plant deep, lifelong roots into her new community as a music teacher at Westerly Elementary School, as a choir director at Bay Presbyterian Church, and as a dear friend to many. Carrie's greatest joy was her family, including her three daughters. Her truest heart was her heart for others.

On July 6, Carrie lost her long, courageous battle with cancer, finding peace with her risen Lord. She is preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Lucy Weaver. She will be dearly missed by her husband, John, her daughters Kelley, Kathryn (Victor) Strimbu, and Julia, her brothers Fred (Becky), Allen (Jennifer), and Hank (Yoko), and her many nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Carrie's memory to Bay Presbyterian Church or the Bay Village Education Foundation, PO Box 40262, Bay Village, Ohio, 44140. A celebration of life will be held on Friday, July 26 at 11am at Bay Presbyterian Church, 25415 Lake Rd, Bay Village, OH 44140. Visitation will be held Thursday, July 25 from 3pm-7pm at Busch Funeral Home, 163 Avon Belden Rd, Avon Lake, Ohio, 44012.
