A funeral service for Mrs. Bobbie J. Horton, 84, of Anniston, will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at K.L. Brown Memory Chapel in Golden Springs with the Reverend Jimmy Russell and the Reverend Mike Farrell officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Mrs. Horton was received into her Savior's arms on September 17, 2014. A celebration broke out as those preceding her in death greeted her there; her lifelong love and husband, William Merrill Horton; her parents, Ola Mae and Henry Aubrey Johnson; her in-laws, Ressie Ivey and William Thomas Horton; one sister, Charlotte McGuirk; one brother, Douglas Johnson; a great granddaughter, Evie Katherine Newton; a special neighbor, Hannah McGinnis; and many extended family and close friends. Oh what rejoicing is taking place today! Mrs. Horton was a lifelong resident of Anniston and worked for many years in downtown Anniston at Merrimac Land Corp. for Tom and Eugene Turner. Her passion was jewelry sales which she began with Spidle's Jewelry/Griffin's Jewelry, both in Anniston, and later with Stinson Howard Fine Jewelry of Oxford. She faithfully served the Lord for many years as a Sunday School and Women's Ministry leader and prayer partner. Mrs. Horton is survived by her children, Guy and Vickie Horton, of Wedowee and Ginger and Ron Newton, of Lincoln; grandchildren, Dru and Minta Horton, of Katy, Texas, Trace Newton, of Gadsden and Russ and Katie Newton, of Anniston; great grandchildren, Moss, Merrill, and Hannah Horton and Elle and Eli Newton; sisters, Ann Strickland, of Weaver, and Yvonne Martin, of Ocean Springs, Miss. Special thanks to a devoted brother-in-law, Charles Horton, and her sister, Ann, who stepped in to take care of her needs on a daily basis; for special friends, Linda and Paul Watson, who treated her as mom; Josephine Horton, for her faithful visits and laughter; and many other faithful family and friends who visited her. Thanks also to all of the staff of NE Alabama Regional Medical Center who cared for her so well; our wonderful doctors at Anniston Orthopedics; all staff at Autumn Cove Assisted Living Facility for their excellent care and friendships; NHC Rehab; The Village at Cook Springs Assisted Living for their above and beyond measures to meet her needs; and especially Cornerstone Rehab at Cook Springs who loved on her, held our hands, and held us up during her last days.
