McHone, Brandy Nicole Shelton (Decatur)

Monday, December 17, 2012

Brandy Nicole Shelton McHone, 36, of Decatur, TN, died on Friday, Dec. 14, 2012. 

She was a member of Pisgah Baptist Church in Decatur. She was the daughter of Kathy McKenzie Womack of Ten Mile and Ray Marion Shelton of Fayetteville, NC. For most of her adult life she followed a family tradition of being a loving caregiver to many who were sick and in need of help. The most special one was her Pa Weaver who was stricken with cancer when she was 8 & 9 years old. Her Granny Rose told everyone that without her sitting with him in her big house she would never have been able to take care of her household chores in the rooms where she couldn’t see of hear him, also giving her Pa much happiness in the process. In the last few years of her life she made some bad choices and I know the Lord decided to take her home to free her from her misery. 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Timothy McHone; her Pa, Weaver McKenzie; Papaw, Ray Shelton; and Nanny, Leta Shelton. 

The survivors include her beloved sons, Jessie Ray Shelton, 19 and Noah Riley McHone, 10, of Decatur; her mother, Kathy Womack of Ten Mile; step-dad, Gary Dawson of Philadelphia, TN; her dad, Ray Marion Shelton and step-mom, Trisha of Fayetteville, NC; her beautiful Granny, Rosa Lee Morgan of Decatur; loving brothers, Brandon Shelton and wife Crystal of Decatur, Chad Dawson of Philadelphia, TN, Aaron Shelton of Walton, NY and Nathan Shelton of Albany, NY; sisters, Amber Shelton of New Jersey and Renee Shelton of North Carolina; her very special step-sisters, Amy Broadwell of Chattanooga and Libby Sanders and husband Adam of Ringgold; special Uncles Robert McKenzie and wife Brenda of Decatur and David McKenzie and Gary Newman of Ten Mile; precious Aunts, Linda Hutsell of Ten Mile, Janice Lyke of Lenoir City, Teresa Bright and husband Gary of Athens, Shy Newman Green of Charleston, Pam Bache and husband Roger of Dayton and Brenda Green of Athens; her most loving great-aunt, Maxine Collier of Dayton; her sweet cousin Becky Redmon who was really more an aunt to her of Decatur; many precious nieces, nephews and cousins; and her very special friend, Tracy Moore.
