Mrs Ora Lee Clay was a devoted and sweet mother from the beginning until the end!!!! Our beloved Ora Lee Clay received the gift of life on October 10, 1936 in Jackson County, Florida to the late Coy and Lerother Garrett. She entered eternal rest on Wednesday, July 12, 2023. We celebrate her life and rejoice in knowing that to be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord. . Ora attended the public schools of Jackson County, Florida. She confessed to Christ at an early age but was a member of New Covenant Baptist Church in Orlando, Florida. She worked various jobs but most of her experiences were working with her husband Frank as a secretary and accountant for the family businesses. Mother Ora can be remembered by her relentless pursuit of learning. At a late age of life, Mother Ora was dedicated to earning her GED by attending weekly night courses. Mother Ora could also be remembered for her compassion for others. She was always smiling and willing to spend time with one of her many grands with open arms and a full heart. She was a true woman of God who loved the Lord! In addition to her parents, Ora Lee preceded in death by her late husband, Frank Lee Clay, son Lee Clay, daughter Lena Clay and brother Wesley Lee Garrett. Her beautiful life and memories will forever be cherished in the lives of her four loving children, Armie Jean Thomas (Mike) of Orlando, Florida; Stanley Clay (Debie) of Orlando, Florida; Cornelia Youngblood of Union Springs, Alabama; Lesa Campbell (John) of Orlando, Florida; She was the oldest of 5 siblings.
