OBITUARY

Sandra Bailey CLAYTON

November 19, 1940February 7, 2020

My loving and accomplished mother, Sandra Clayton, peacefully passed on Friday, February 7, 2020. Mom was born in Memphis, Tennessee on November 19, 1940. She graduated from Central High School in Memphis and went on to obtain a Bachelors of Music and Education from Southwestern at Memphis (Rhodes College). She began her career in teaching at Memphis City Schools. Her love and devotion for children was the beginning of the unconditional love she would soon give her own children, Addison and Lucia. Mom put her teaching career on hold after moving to Franklin, Tennessee to give us the most spectacular childhood. She obtained a degree in Interior Design (O’More School of Interior Architecture and Design) and ventured into the horse breeding business. What unforgettable memories and a true love of horses she gave me and Addison. Mom relocated back to Memphis to care for her parents and went on to obtain a Masters in Music from the University of Memphis. She was an avid classical pianist, another passionate devotion of hers. She would later retire from Memphis City Schools where her love of teaching began. Sandra was preceded in death by her parents Boyce and Penny Clayton and her son Addison Beecher Scoville IV. She is survived by her daughter Lucia Clayton Jolly (Philip), her grandsons Alex Hurst (Kelli) and Andrew Hurst, Jr. (Katie). In lieu of flowers please send a memorial contribution to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
