Pastor Shad Kennedy will officiate the service.

A native of Leetown Community, Mississippi, she was a retired Cafeteria Worker and a member of Unity Baptist Church. Elois was a very religious and loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend, who will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.

“Let not your hearts be troubled; Ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also.: John 14: 1-3

She was preceded in death by her parents, James W. “Bud” Lee and Montoria Smith Lee; her loving husband, Bernard D. Burrell; her brothers, Osel Lee and Edro Lee; and her sisters, Edna McCord, Claudine Thigpen, Evelyn Cross, and Mae Muller.

Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Douglas (Eileen) Burrell, Dale (Linda) Burrell, and Donald (Debbie) Burrell; two grandchildren, Rachel (Chris) Bizot and Lindsay (Chris) Carr; her three great grandchildren, Camden, Bryson, and Kolbe Bizot; and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to give special thanks to Pat Carnes and the staff at Our Place for the excellent care given to Elois.
