Delena Faye Burton, 76, of Campbellsville, Kentucky, daughter of the late Linus Bright and Avis (England) Bright was born in Taylor County on January 29th, 1945, and departed this life peacefully on Saturday, March 19th, 2021, at her home in Campbellsville, Kentucky.
She was united in marriage on December 27th, 1963 to Jerry Dale Burton, who preceded her in death on June 7th, 1998.
Faye professed faith in Christ and was a member of the Feathersburg Church of God. She loved to garden in her spare time. Faye lived and found true joy in cooking and baking for family and friends. She loved spending time with family, especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was always there whenever needed; she truly possessed a “servant’s heart”.
She worked at Fruit of the Loom and retired after 30 years. Ms. Burton was not one to remain idle, so she went on to work another 11 years for the Taylor County School System and subsequently retired.
Faye leaves to cherish her memory one son and one daughter: Tracy Burton of Adair County and Kecia Burress and husband Allen of Elkhorn, Kentucky.
She is also survived by five sisters and two brothers: Christine Greer, Judy Brockman, Willard Bright, Margaret Burress, Alvin (Judy) Bright, and Patricia (Gary) Gray all of Campbellsville, KY; and Rita (Jack) Moore of Louisville, KY.
She loved and enjoyed all three grandchildren and six great-grandchildren: Dustan Burress, Austin Burress, and Jessica Johnson (Joe); Isaac Burress, Nathan Burress, Rylee Burress, Laura Johnson, Sarah Johnson, and Allie Jo Johnson.
Also survived by one brother-in-law Randall Brockman: nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.
