Obituary for Molka Horton

Molka Horton, age 39, died July 20, 2022.

Molka Injamila Horton was born November 17, 1982 in Memphis, TN to James Lee Horton (deceased) and Bobbie Allen. She grew up in Dixie Homes Housing Development and developed her social skills and a love for learning. At age 17 after the transition of father, Molka was welcomed into the home of Wayne and Gwen Jackson, loving brother and wife of her father where she grew into the woman, we all admire and love so much. Molka’s passion for Fashion and Photography ignited during her young adult life where she worked with various organizations and stylist.

Molka attended Northside High, Job Corp, and Southwest Community College. She earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition with an emphasis in Lifetime Wellness in 2011 from University of Memphis. After receiving her degree, she started her career with the Shelby County Correction Center as a Counselor for 5 years. Molka had a strong spiritual base as a Holistic Nutrition Practitioner and loved sharing her healing remedies with family.

To know her was to truly love her and if she told anyone she loved them, she meant it from the heart. She was beautiful, brilliant, focused and fiercely independent. She will be truly missed.

Molka was preceded in death by her father, James Lee Horton; uncle, Ray Horton; maternal grandparents, Lavonia Newsome Allen Roach and Tommy Lee Allen; paternal grandparents, Nellie and James Horton, maternal great grandfather, Nancy Marshall Newsome and Thomas Lot; and paternal great grandparents, Ivory (Buddy) and Callie Watson.

The loving memories of Molka Horton will be cherished for a lifetime by her family: her daughter, Brooklyn Dior Crawford (Ronrico Crawford and Ms. Teaire); her mother, Bobbie Allen; two sisters, Erin Allen and Kenya Allen; aunts, Debra Allen, Tracy Allen (Harry), Latoya Roach, Kerry Bush (Johnny); uncles, Tommy Allen Jr., Shawn Roach, Jason Roach, Samuel Watson (Margaret), Larry Jackson (Karen*K-K), Wayne Jackson (Gwen); special cousins, Lola Field (Eddie), June Newsome, and a host of great uncles and aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
