Billie Denton

Billie Denton, 89, of Park Hills, passed away peacefully on December 19, 2023, at Country Meadows Nursing Home. She was born July 24, 1934, in Frankclay, to the late Arthur and Blanche (Watson) Lawson. Billie was a member of the Frankclay United Methodist Church where her husband preached for many years. She then became a member of the Leadwood United Methodist Church, where she taught Sunday School and was very active with church functions. Billie enjoyed gardening her roses and irises, as well as crocheting. She loved baking pies and making divinity candy. She also had a caring heart and enjoyed giving her neighbors good food. There came a day her neighbor’s, Joann and Earl, were able to repay cooking and care for her. Billie was a loving wife, caring for her husband, devoted mother to her children and a grandmother that would get down on the floor to play and share with her grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Eugene Luther Denton; siblings, Curtis (Annabelle) Lawson, Paul (Linda) Lawson, Norma (Charles) Claunch, Dale (Janet) Lawson and Georgie Lawson.
