Elverta Weatherford
By: Michelle Lennon, Patient Care Coordinator
Elverta was born in Albion on March 30, 1918. She raised her fam- ily in Albion as well, including two children Tanya Arnet and Richard Weatherford. But it doesn’t stop there. She has six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
She was happily married to her husband for 41 years. After high school she was encouraged to attend Idelwild, which was a trade school focused on African-Americans.
She then got a job at the post
office where she met her future hus- band. She brought a smile to the faces of those celebrating with her when we learned that she pursued him by holding his mail so he had to check
in with her to pick it up. The rest is history.
As a married couple they founded and operated a business for 40 years called A to Z Sweeper Company. The staff would go door-to-door and sell Kirby vacuum cleaners.
Elverta attended Lewis Chapel Church in Albion and was the main pianist for many years. She was also

Pre-planning is a gift to your family.
extremely involved in missionary work. She enjoys cooking and play- ing the piano along with traveling. She and her husband traveled many places including Canada in their motorhome. While in Canada they were so impressed by all the towns that had floral arrangements displayed throughout that they took this concept back to Albion and started Citizens to Beautify Albion. This is still in prac- tice to this day.
