Melva Lee Clifton

Melva Lee Clifton, 83, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 surrounded by her family. A funeral service will be held 11 A.M on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at Burton Memorial Church with Rev. Ronnie Jones and Rev. Craig Edwards officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. The interment will follow the service at the church cemetery. Melva was born to the late Horace Carter Talley and Ruby Lucille Woodall Talley. She was a caring, giving and loving person, always trying to help others in need. She enjoyed baking and was known for her fried apple and sweet potato pies. Faith was very important to her and she used her talents to honor God in church, which included playing the piano and singing. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family. Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband of over 60 years Marvin Clifton and sister, Esther Golden. She is survived by her children, Sharon Brown, Gary Clifton (Lyzell), Kathy Lovelace (Gary), Jack Clifton (Sharon) and Penny Leigh Clifton (Gina); 14 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great grandchildren and special companion, Misty “Mitty” Clifton as well as a large and loving extended family.
