Milton, FL

Mary Lou Allen Whitfield, age 88, lifelong resident of Milton, passed away on Thursday, 1 February 2024. She was born in Milton on 15 April 1935 to parents Oswalt Laney Allen and Evelyn Enfinger Allen.Her Great Grandfather Jesse Carter Allen was the first sheriff of Santa Rosa County in 1842 and the founder of Allentown Community, north of Milton. Mary grew up in Allentown and was the oldest of four sisters. She met her husband Verlon Savoy Whitfield in Allentown, and they were married just 4 days shy of 72 years. She was Mary Lou to most people but was known as “Sister” to her three sisters Ann Price, Retta Hubner, and Irene Clary. She was Mom to her two boys and Nana to her grand kids. Of all her names, you were quick to be corrected if you spelled her name as Marylou. Besides being a mother, she worked as a dental assistant, then became a bank teller and bank auditor for the original First National Bank on Willing Street and moved with the bank to its current location on Stewart Street. That bank today is Truist Bank. She was the strong-willed matriarch of the family and dearly loved and supported her husband, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Her strong will was prevalent even to her last breath. She was the caretaker of all her family including her mother and youngest sister in their last days.She leaves behind one sister, Ann Price of Pensacola; her two sons, Steve (Tori) Whitfield of Navarre and Doug (Taria) Whitfield of Milton; along with 5 grandchildren, Chris (Amy) Whitfield, Joy Carolyn (Travis) Peebles, Shelley Lee (Kevin) Jones, Cameron Mary (Max) Lorge and Stephanie Louanna Whitfield; plus 9 great grandchildren, Katie, Allison, Colby, Shelby, Jacob, Logan, Avery, Alden and Emerson. A Funeral Service will be held Saturday February 10, 2024, at Lewis Funeral Home Milton Chapel, 6405 Highway 90 W Milton, Florida 32570, with visitation from 2:00-3:00pm and service at 3:00pm. Private interment will be later at Serenity Gardens in Milton. The family requests casual attire at the services.Rev. Bob Hornick officiating. The family wishes to thank the great staff at Sandy Ridge Rehabilitation and Nursing for having cared for Mary for over 2 years. They are truly a first-class organization in which the staff cares for their residents/patients as if they were caring for their own parents and grandparents. At the risk of leaving people out, we especially want to acknowledge Melissa Riley, Azenath Muok and Andrea Martin for going way beyond the norm in their care of both Mary and Verlon.Because Westminster Presbyterian was Verlon and Mary’s passion, the family requests memorial donations may be made to the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 6659 Park Avenue, Milton, FL 32570.Disclaimer: This obituary has been originated and posted directly by Lewis Funeral Home.
