She was preceded in death by her husband as she so lovingly referred to as "my Johnie", parents: Lee and Ada Burgess, and brother, Lewis Burgess. Even though Alzheimer's had taken much of her mind, she never forgot how to pray. With her last breath, she prayed. A special Thank You to Tracy Light, Ann McAnnally and Amber Brannon. Your love and dedication to our Mother did not go unnoticed. She was mother to a few, Nanny to many and a friend to all. Visitation will be Thursday, January 9, 2020 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Warrior Church of God. The funeral service will be Friday, January 10, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Jonathan Lambert and her grandson, Rodney Ragland officiating. Burial will follow at Watts Union Cemetery.
