Payton was born on February 7, 2019, in Flowood, MS and was a resident of Brandon, MS. Her family are members of Pinelake Reservoir. Payton brought joy to all who knew her captivating smile and beautiful blue eyes. She loved rocking, singing and kisses from her family. You Are My Sunshine, Jesus Loves Me, and Row, Row, Row Your Boat were her favorites… and playing peek-a-boo. She was deeply loved and will be forever missed by an abundance of family and friends who many spent time sitting and loving on her during her hospital stays.
