A native of Picayune, Miss., she was a kindergartener at Sumrall Elementary School, where her teachers were Mrs. Killebrew and Mrs. Hudson. She attended First Baptist Church of Sumrall. Ella was on loan to us (by God) at the perfect age of innocence. She loved everyone, she didn't hate, she loved being outside and playing in the mud, splashing in mud puddles, and picking flowers. She loved arts and crafts and using EVERY bit of the tape in the house (and glue). Ella loved to sing, dress up in princess costumes, My Little Pony and Barbies. Ella said when she grew up she wanted to be a cake decorator at Paul's Pastry in Picayune. Ella was loved by all who knew her, far and near.
