Marjorie Dean Clayton, Taylor Co., KY native (1928-2015)

'Dean brightened any room as she always had a smile on her face, a sparkle in her eyes and a hat on her head. She put others first, and her positive spirit and attitude were contagious. From being the life of the party-singing, dancing or cheering-to being a friend to all, Dean was truly one of a kind. She loved her family, her friends, the friends of her children and grandchildren, high school football, Sudoku and crossword puzzles, the Kentucky Derby, her country and living. While she will be missed, her vibrant spirit and entertaining stories will be remembered and celebrated.'

Marjorie Dean Clayton, known by her friends as Deanie and her family as Mammy, passed away on Tuesday, November 24, 2015.

She requested that attendees meet someone new at her party, and to honor her request, a meet and greet will be held from 12pmNoonCT, until 1pmCT.
