Loretta Jean Burnett Stubbs was born on January 9, 1948 in Cybur, MS to the late Johnny Burnett Jr. and Eula Mae Pearson Burnett Anderson.
Sister Loretta was a faithful member of the Parker Chapel Missionary Baptist Church where she held many positions. She attended school in Carriere, MS, was a graduate of George Washington Carver High in Picayune, MS and attended Gulf Coast College to obtain a degree in welding.
