Jaunita Dilworth Obituary
Jaunita Dilworth, age 81, was welcomed into the kingdom of Heaven on Monday, January 15, 2018. Jaunita was a long-time resident of Alamogordo-almost 60 years. From her birth on January 24, 1936 in Clarksville, TX, to her homegoing on Monday, Jaunita blessed all those around her with care, kindness, and unconditional love. Being in the presence of family and friends was one of her greatest joys; she looked forward to annual trips in August to attend the Haywood Baptist Church Reunions. In addition to family gatherings, she enjoyed laughter, reading, going to garage sales, collecting elephants and antiques, greeting cards, watching the News and Weather stations, giving candy to neighborhood children, and sitting outside on the porch enjoying her well-manicured lawn while soaking in the bright sunrays.

She is preceded in death by son, Harold; daughter, Roberta; parents Clay Sr and Mentha; sister Christine; and brothers JD, Robert, Odell, and Clay Jr.

Jaunita is survived by her beloved brother, Donald "Billy Don" of Alamogordo and two sisters Myrtle Thornton of San Diego, CA and LouSetta Alford of Hemet, CA; sister-in-law Faye Dilworth of Hobbs, NM, her daughter Chris D Hilliard (Wade) of San Antonio TX, son Calvin Dilworth (Patricia) of Fayetteville NC; daughter Michelle Dilworth of Alamogordo NM; and daughter La Shonda Samms of San Antonio TX. Her legacy includes 10 amazing grandchildren (Soncerray, Eric, Cory, Tamar, Angela, Tamia, Brandon, CJ, Christian, Kally), 14 wonderful great grandchildren (Symphony, Trinity, Glory, Joshua, Solomon, Josiah, Mariah, Nalani, Kyiarah, Keonna, Zenaisha, Anaiah, Jordan, and Xavier), and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, especially Helen Menefee and Hilda Bickham.

Services are scheduled for Monday, January 22, 2018 at 11:00 am, at Alamogordo Funeral Home, 2301 E 1st Street. Interment will be at Monte Vista Cemetery.
