                                                                     "Together Again"

Our beloved Mother, Grandma, Great-Grandma, Great-Great Grandma, Aunt, Cousin and Friend was peacefully called home to be with her Lord and Savior, surrounded by her loving family.

Mom married the love of her life, Leonard Walton November 10, 1962.  She was a loving wife and one heck of a southern cook.  Her family would fight over the last piece of peach cobbler and beg for more.

Mom was a beautiful southern lady inside and out.  She was loving, generous to a fault, loyal charming, smart, kind, considerate and very hard working.  Mom loved to read Romance novels, watching Matlock, Perry Mason, Andy Griffith, I Love Lucy, The Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune, Family Feud and her absolute favorite was Dallas!  She loved the character J.R. Ewing!!!!

She was simply the Best Mom, listener, advice giver and Grandma/Great/Great-Great Grandma, wife, sister, Aunt, cousin and friend in the whole world!!!!  She will forever and ever be in our minds and hearts!!
