Theresa Layton

Theresa “Tinky” Layton, 88 of Lee, formerly of Satsuma, peacefully returned home on October 2, 2020, welcomed with open arms by the love of her life, Robert Lee Layton.

Terry was born on May 24, 1932 in Teaneck, NJ. She met Robert in 1952 on New Years Eve, sharing a kiss at midnight and a million more over 63 years of marriage filled with boundless joy and unconditional love. If you were lucky enough to spend some time with Tinky, you’d know her laugh was infectious and her love of Elvis Presley, the Miami Dolphins and her family was unparalleled.

Bob and Terry are reunited at last, visiting their friends in Heaven’s Walmart and enjoying an eternity of clear blue days on the boat.

Theresa is survived by her four siblings, Buddy, Dean, Nancy and Linda; her boys, Robert Layton, Ronald Layton, Richard Layton and Russell Layton as well as her beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren.

“We won’t be sad, we’ll be glad for all the life we’ve had and we’ll remember when.”

Messages of encouragement or sympathy may be expressed in her online guestbook at

No services are planned.
