Lily Ann Talbot, daughter of Willie and Alpha Talbot, married Leslie J. Canright, Jr., on Jan. 7, 1950. Together they raised three children, Leslie J., III, Joyce Ann, and Dayle Marie.
Lily held a variety of jobs over the years including the old Tin Top store and housecleaning jobs. She continued to clean houses through her later years because she enjoyed the families she worked for.
The work she cherished most was teaching Sunday school, which she did through out the course of her life. She loved the children as if they were her own.
Her husband preceded her in death. She found new love and was preceded in death by her second and third husbands, Johny Hampton and Horace Wilson.
Lily was also predeceased by numerous brothers and sisters and her loving son, Leslie J. Canright III.
A large family, who will miss her dearly, survives Lily. They include her sister, Helen Connell; two daughters, Joyce Benthall and husband, Dale, Dayle Stanley and husband Rickey; stepchildren, Jan Wallace and Robert, Mike Wilson and Donna, Christy Durant and family; and grandchildren, James Wood, Wendy and Dusty Benthall, Micheal and Eric Stanley, Sean Canright and Sandy, Cassie Canright, Lily Hillman and Nathan, Jack and Jodee Canright. She also has numerous great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
