Joyce Weathers Rast, 70, of Trinity, passed away Sunday, January 26, 2020, at her home.

Born May 5, 1949, in Orangeburg, South Carolina, she was the daughter of the late James Marvin Weathers, Sr. and the late Mary Lena Bozard Weathers.

For three years, she served as Executive Director for the High Point Housing Authority, and retired from Green Street Baptist Church following fifteen years of service where she worked with five different Pastors. Most importantly, she was a Christian wife, mother, grandmother, and found her life’s calling serving Green Street as her “mission field”. Joyce loved to cook for her family, and had a passion for flowers.

She is survived by her beloved husband of forty-seven years, Larry Allen Rast of the home; daughter, Shannon Thomas and husband Richard of Savannah, Georgia; son, Michael Rast and wife April of Kernersville; brother, Jimmy Weathers, Jr. and wife Donna of Bowman, South Carolina; and grandchildren, Nora Thomas, Ian Rast, and Isaiah Rast.
