Earlene  Denton
Earlene Denton age 84, of Barry, passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2019. She was born on Sept. 19, 1934 in Wills Point to Sidney Earl and Ruby Lee McGuire. She was the second daughter of six girls. The family moved to Dallas early in Earlene's life. She attended schools and graduated in the Dallas area. She met and married Leroy Denton in 1953. They were married 53 years when Leroy passed away in 2006.
Earlene was a strong Christian woman. She loved the Lord with all of her heart. She was a member of the Lord's church and devoted her talents to being a good servant. She taught Sunday bible classes to children. She volunteered her talents at retirement centers. She helped people of all ages. She was multi-talented. She was a beautician, seamstress, artist, worked with crochet and produced beautiful ceramic figurines.
She loved her family and they truly loved her. She made fast friends wherever she went. She suffered several maladies, but always kept the best attitude. Even in her last days, she was confident that all was well. And it was, "well with her soul." She wasn't worried. We will miss Earlene. We are still here and won't see her smiling face or hear her laughter, but we will remember all that she was and be smiling in our hearts.
Earlene was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and three sisters; Avis Sue McGuire, Carmen Delores Hilliard and Wanda Jo Ann Chambers.
She is survived by her only child, Marshall Lee Denton; two sisters, Sylvia Sydney Morgan and husband, David Donald Morgan, Martha Gail Bennett and husband, Ernest Bennett and over 20 loving nieces and nephews.
