 Funeral services for Hattie Kirkland Drayton, 88, of 185 Revolutionary Trail Fairfax, SC will be held 11:00 am Tuesday, July 7, 2015 at Macedonia CME Church with Reverend Michelle Williams officiating.  Burial will follow in the  St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church cemetery.


  Hattie was born on September 5, 1926 in Allendale County, the daughter of the late Bro. Sammie Kirkland and Mrs. Ester Johnson Kirkland.  She entered into heavenly rest on July 3, 2015 at the Colleton Medical Center.            


She attended the public schools of Allendale County. At an early age, she joined Macedonia CME Church where she received her early Christian training. She was a devout member and deaconess faithfully serving quietly in many endeavors. Sister Drayton was truly a servant of the Master as she kept her faith in her daily living. She was assistant superintendent of Sunday School, president of the Communion Board, Sunday School teacher, member of Woman’s Willing Workers Club, choir member, and a missionary. Her leadership and guidance will be missed. She worked and retired successfully after 20 plus years at Allendale Cleaners.

She was married to the late Bro. Stephen “Booster” Drayton. They lived many happy and productive years together. They created a home of warmth and love.


  She will be dearly missed by her grand-nephew, Anthony Washington of North Augusta, SC; a daughter-in-law, Catherine Greatheart of Savannah, GA; a sister-in-law, Luvenia Bowers of Augusta, GA; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and dear friends.
