Just four months after coming into this world, Oakley Van Elvington passed away peacefully in his parents arms at Medical City Children's Hospital in Dallas. During that fleeting time, he touched many lives and was loved by all.
Born 13 weeks early and weighing only 1 pound 9 ounces, Oakley was still able to grip his mother's finger and respond to his father's touch during his brief stay on earth. He was born at Hunt Regional Hospital on April 18, 2017, and went to be an angel in heaven on Aug. 18, 2017, at 1:22 p.m.
Oakley joins his great-grandparents, Cliff Bridges of Greenville, Leon Wineinger of Greenville, Rollie Mack Elvington of Pilot Point, and Phillis Jo Poter Van Slyke of Pilot Point in heaven.
He is survived by his father, Taylor Elvington, mother Tiffany (Wineinger) Elvington; brother, Bryson Elvington; grandparents, Randy and Kelly Wineinger, Trudy Wineinger, Kimberly Elvington and Mark Elvington.
Funeral services will be 10 a.m. Monday at Coker-Mathews Funeral Home chapel with Rev. Roger Ratliff officiating. Interment will be in Memoryland Memorial Park. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.
The family would like to thank the staff at Hunt Regional Hospital, Medical City Plano and Medical city Children's Hospital in Dallas for all the wonderful care given to Oakley.
