Delilah Jay Padgett Obituary

Delilah Jay Padgett, a cherished and adored baby girl whose brief life brought immeasurable joy and love to all who knew her, passed away on December 30th, 2023. Born on October 30th, 2023, in Macon, Georgia, Delilah was the beloved daughter of Benjamin Bryant Van Padgett, Sr. and Breanna Charlene Padgett, and the adored younger sister of Benjamin Bryant Van Padgett, Jr.

Delilah's arrival into this world was celebrated by a large and loving family, including her doting grandparents Cindy Hamby (Terry), Roni Wertz (Robert), Paul Fraley, and Melissa Fraley and many other bonus grandparents. She was welcomed with open arms by her aunts and uncles, Audreanna Hawk (Steve), Cori Owens, Ronald Fraley, Lari Bohannon (Doug), Justin Hamby (Alex), Dakota Hamby (Rachel), and Tonya Padgett. Her presence was a gift to her many bonus grandparents, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members, and friends who were all enchanted by her sweet smile and emerging personality.

Though her time on earth was far too short, Delilah's impact was profound. She was a loving soul whose laughter and bright spirit were the embodiment of innocence and purity. Her parents fondly remember her as a funny and faith-filled baby, whose presence was a constant reminder of the beauty and fragility of life. Delilah's family will forever treasure the memories of her sweetest smiles and the joy she brought into their lives.

Delilah was preceded in death by her grandfather, Marvin J. Padgett, and grandmother, Patricia J. Fraley, as well as other dear grandparents who had passed before her. The legacy of love they left behind continued to shine brightly in Delilah, a testament to the family's enduring bond.

In her brief time with us, Delilah captured the hearts of everyone she met. Her family takes comfort in knowing that she is now cradled in the arms of angels, watching over them with the same love and tenderness she was shown during her time on earth. They find solace in the belief that her spirit will continue to guide and inspire them, as they hold her memory close to their hearts.

Delilah's family wishes to express their deep gratitude for the outpouring of love and support they have received during this unimaginably difficult time. They are moved by the kindness of friends and the community, and they cherish every message of condolence and every gesture of sympathy.

As they navigate this profound loss, Delilah's family holds onto the promise that her spirit will forever be intertwined with theirs. In the words of her parents, "As long as we're living, our baby you'll be." Delilah Jay Padgett will be profoundly missed, but her light will continue to shine in the hearts of those who loved her most.

A service to celebrate the life of Delilah will be held on Saturday, January 6, 2024, at 2:30P.M. EST at the Johnson Brown-Service Funeral Home in Valley with interment following in Johnson Memorial Gardens. Delilah's family will be receiving friends one hour prior to the service. 

Delilah's family will always remember her as a precious child of God, whose life, however short, was filled with love and whose memory will be cherished forever.
