Katie Louise Skelton

On Saturday, June 15, 2024, Mrs Katie Louise Clifton Skelton, lifelong resident of Ashland, Mississippi, departed this life for her heavenly home.  She was born July 10, 1935, in Potts Camp, Mississippi, to George Brad and Effie Veller Fuller Clifton.  Katie was the tenth of thirteen children born of this union.  Katie was a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Ashland, Mississippi.

Katie married the love of her life, Billy Richard Skelton on January 10, 1953. She spent her life working at ITT Thompson factory in Holly Springs and raising their four children to be upstanding citizens of society.  Katie and Billy were very proud of their children and their accomplishments.

Later, when Katie retired, she worked part time at the Flower Shop and as a greeter at the Wal-Mart in Holly Springs, because she loved to talk so much.
