Ethelene Britton, 84, of Miami, Texas passed away on February 15, 2021 at her home surrounded by her family. She was born on October 29, 1936 in Greer County, Oklahoma to the late Tom and Hattie Chisum Weaver. Ethelene lived all her life in Oklahoma and Texas, except for a few months when she lived in Kentucky. She was a graduate of Reed High School with the class of 1956, where she served as Vice President of her class, both her junior and senior years. She was an active member of the 4-H Club. Ethelene was married to her high school sweetheart, Bill Britton, on August 25, 1957. The couple were blessed with two beautiful daughters.
