Temple Christina Bryant
Ms. Temple Christina Metcalf Weaver Bryant, age 48, of Fernandina Beach, Florida passed away Monday morning, October 19, 2020. Temple Christina Metcalf was born August 11, 1972 in Fernandina Beach, Florida to Wanda and David Metcalf. Temple was blessed to have three parents who loved her very much. Her mother, Wanda, married Louis Weaver, and Louis became Temple's second father, which is why she also carries the Weaver name with pride and loving memories.
When Temple was younger, you could have found her at Bean School of Dance where she loved to take several dance classes to sharpen and show off her talents. If she wasn't dancing, you could have found her on the football field cheering on the Pirates for their next win. Several of her childhood friends have commented how they always will remember her dancing and cheering her way through life. Temple continued a love of dancing and cheerleading into her high school years where she attended Fernandina Beach High School and participated in the Class of 1990.
Temple was a forever island girl with a beautiful soul and an absolute love for life. She was an extremely positive person, and her infectious laugh could fill a room with joy. She loved music, and she could often be seen singing and dancing which brought pure happiness to those around her. Temple had such a lively spirit, and she loved to glide about the island making sure to share love, peace, and acceptance to everyone she met.
Of all the things Temple accomplished in life, she would say her greatest legacy are her two children, Cozmic "Cozi" Ryder Bryant and Michael Grayson Maze Autry. Cozi and Grayson are phenomenal individuals who love each other and their mother dearly. She will be greatly missed by both of them, and they will carry their fond memories of their mother with them forever.
Temple was preceded in death by her parents Wanda and Louis Weaver. Along with her two children Cozi and Grayson and her first father David Metcalf(Emily), she leaves behind her aunt, Cindy Holman, her two sisters, Michelle "Shelby" Weaver Hall(Derek) and Caroline Metcalf, and her three brothers, Tony Weaver, Louis "Lou" Weaver(Mary), and David Metcalf, as well as, a large number of nieces, nephews, cousins, and very close friends.
Services to celebrate her life will be at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 in the Burgess Chapel of Oxley-Heard.
Her family will receive friends from 12:00 noon until the hour of service.

Temple was a gypsy soul and could light up any room she entered with that infectious smile of hers. As kids she was always the mediator in our teen girl disagreements. She always had the hippie soul and was at peace with whatever she was doing. No matter her situation, she always had a smile on her face, those big sunglasses and would greet you with a hug and a peace sign. Growing up there were many a nights Ms. Wanda was blaring some Tina Turner and we had dance parties in the living room. Temple had a love for dancing, singing, the beach, her family and her friends.
I pray you are at peace and watching over your sweet babies. You will never be forgotten. Fly high my sweet Temps� dance on the clouds and shine like a diamond in the sky
