She was preceded in death by her parents; loving husband, Joe Delton Alexander; three brothers; three sisters; and two grandchildren, Alexander Clay Clanton and Julia Alexander.

Survivors include her son Marlon Alexander and wife Deanna of Alba; two daughters, Delbra Fazel and husband Sam of Alba and Denise Clanton and husband Garry of Quitman; eight grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; and numerous other relatives and friends.
