Mrs. Burdeshaw was born December 29, 1939 in Geneva County to the late John Hubert and Ethel Mae Wright Dean. She was the strongest, wisest woman we have ever known. She taught us to love, to believe in Jesus and in ourselves; to be strong and live a life of love and happiness. She taught us how to be a parent just by how she raised us. We love you Mama and we are at peace knowing you are with Jesus, but our hearts ache today. We long to hug you one last time. To feel your hand in ours.
In addition to her parents, her first husband and the father of her children, Johnny Mack Burdeshaw; her second husband, James Earl Carroll; and one brother, John Earl Dean preceded her in death.
