A 10 am visitation followed by an 11 am Memorial Service will be held January 18, 2019, at the Lakeshore Congregational Methodist Church in Byram, Mississippi, with the Reverend Glynn Pope officiating. The Reverend Wayne Sellers, cousin of Mrs. Benton, will assist. A private graveside service and interment will take place at Lakewood South Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Jackson MS.
