That same year she married the love of her life, Jimmy Ralph Weaver on December 4, 1960. She had a very successful 40-year career as an administrative assistant in various offices including two law offices, the department of hematology at UNC Chapel Hill Medical Center, the human resources department of Mead-CompuChem, and as a contract administrator at both IBM and NC State University. She was an active church member who had over 65 years of Sunday School perfect attendance, was a member of the Women’s Missionary Union, and supervised many church programs such as the Chrismon program and flower program at Parkwood Baptist in Durham. Fay has been a member of Burnell Baptist Church in Four Oaks for over 15 years. She was a gifted seamstress, sewing many sets of clothes for herself and her family. Fay enjoyed taking care of and helping other people and she accomplished this in many different ways throughout her life.
