CITRONELLE, Ala. (WKRG) — Friends, family, and teachers are preparing to say their last goodbyes to Anna Weaver. The 14-year-old 9th grader was killed in ATV crash Friday afternoon.
It’s going to be a sad week around Citronelle High School and for much of this part of Mobile County as a whole.
Tonight a visitation will be held from 6 to 9 at Restoration Church at 8520 State Street in Citronelle. Tomorrow a funeral service will be at the same location, Wednesday morning at 11.
Family and faculty are remembering the life of a Citronelle High School Student killed in an ATV crash over the weekend. Monday students and teachers gathered at the flagpole to pray. The loss of Anna Weaver has dealt a big blow to this tightknit community. Monday morning people held hands and hugged over this huge loss. Teachers say it’s okay to be sad and it’s okay to cry. Her youth pastor says Anna Weaver touched the lives of virtually everyone in the school.
“She always just lit up the room every time she walked in it’s going to be hard for our students, for our youth group going forward we know Anna’s in a lot better place right now, she’s in heaven she wouldn’t come back now even if she had a chance to,” said youth pastor Randy Reed. Students also released balloons at the football practice field as part of their tribute to the late 9th grader. A second young woman was also hurt in the ATV crash. A spokesman with the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office says she was treated and released from the hospital.
