Obituary for Tawanda Yelverton Lea
Tawanda Yelverton Lea, 86, passed away Friday, June 8, 2018 at St. Dominic’s Hospital. Visitation will be 1:00 pm until the 2:00pm funeral service on Monday, June 11, 2018 at Morrison Heights Baptist Church in Clinton.

Mrs. Lea was born in Mize, MS to the late Carl Yelverton and Daisy Bryant Yelverton. She and her husband, Denver, lived in Natchez, MS for 34 years where she was bookkeeper and part-owner of Medical Arts and Morgantown Pharmacies. In 1994 she and her husband moved to Clinton, MS. “T”, as friends called her, enjoyed being involved in her church, fishing with her husband, traveling, reading, watching football, especially her beloved Ole Miss Rebels, and playing Mexican Train dominoes weekly with her friends. She was a loving, caring lady who put others before herself, especially her family and she was a wonderful cook and teller of family tales. She touched and impacted many lives and has left a legacy of love and faith.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Denver Luke Lea, Jr.; her sister, Cleda Yelverton Magee of Magee, MS and an infant grandson. Survivors include her son, Clarence Wilton (Beth) of Fort Worth, TX; daughter, Barbara Jean Lea (Bill) Campbell of Clinton; foster son, Alyson (Ruty) Coyle of Piedmont, OK; and step-son, Dan Lea; a brother, Dale Yelverton, of Magee; 13 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren with number 15 due in July and her “boys”, Bob and Richard Catlett of Clinton.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests gifts be made to Morrison Heights Baptist Church Special Needs Class 8211 or Morrison Heights Missions Fund.
