Mildred Smith Barton, 92, of Anderson, SC, took the outstretched hand of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and went home to begin her stroll over heaven hand-in-hand with the love of her life, Carlisle, on Tuesday, December 5, 2023. What a beautiful reunion that must have been!

She was a long time member of the West Anderson Church of God, Anderson, SC where she volunteered for a few years and attended prior to declining health.

She leaves behind one daughter, Karen Barton Pless; one son, Brent Barton (Dottie); two grandsons, Brandon Barton and Matthew Barton; and two great-grandchildren, Serri Barton and Elias Barton.

In addition to her husband Carlisle C. Barton, she was preceded in death by a sister, Ruby Nell Smith Vaughn, and brother-in-law Reuben F. Vaughn.
