Judith Ann (Weaver) DeLaPorte, 86, of Huntsville, Ark., passed away Saturday, July 13, 2019, at her home. She was born Dec. 12, 1932 in Marion, Ind. to Russell Weaver and Alta Delight Shockey-(Weaver) Seybert.

She married Robert DeLaPorte on Dec. 22, 1950. She worked at the trust dept. and courthouse in Marion, Ind. while raising five children and two foster children.

She moved with her family to Arkansas in 1972. She worked at the Bank of Elkins for 23 years while continuing to raise her children and was like a mother to many other children in the community. Judith and Bob worked together often at restoring houses, which was a passion of hers. She liked to cook, sew, work on crafts and was very devoted to her family. She was always ready to have as many family members around her as possible. She was a longtime member of the Huntsville Free Will Baptist Church. She was proud to be the mother of four veterans, Dale (Navy) and Bobby, Susan and Mark (Army).

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Loren Weaver and Eldon Weaver; sister, Lorraine Paul; husband of nearly 50 years, Robert; and great-grandchildren, Brannon, William and Jacob.

Survivors include her children, Susan Horn, Sara (Jeff) Reeves, Dale DeLaPorte and Mark DeLaPorte; daughter-in-law, Kelly DeLaPorte; brother, Charles Weaver; grandchildren, Angela (John) Simm, Sam May, Mike DeLaPorte, Anne McGowen, Miranda (Eric) Boothe, Tim (Angie) DeLaPorte and Misty DeLaPorte; numerous nieces and nephews and 14 great-grandchildren and two more on the way — the circle of life continues.

A funeral service will be 2 p.m. Friday, July 19, 2019, at the Huntsville Free Will Baptist Church with Rev. Roy Hoffelder and Rev. Eldon Bagwell officiating. Burial will follow at Pinnacle Cemetery in Madison County near Elkins. Funeral services are under the direction of Madison County Funeral Service.
