BOLIVAR, Mo. — Jennifer Sue Burrows, 44, of Bolivar, Mo., died on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, at Cox South Hospital, Springfield, Mo.

She graduated from Olathe South High School in 1986 and graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in elementary education in 2008 from Drury University in Springfield.
Mrs. Burrows was a beloved preschool teacher for the Bolivar school system since 1999, where she lovingly taught children much more than how to succeed in school. She attended Wellspring Baptist Fellowship in Bolivar.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Alvin and Audrey Miller and Alfred and Thelma Spear.
Jennifer's relationship with the Lord was of utmost importance to her, and she shared her love of Jesus freely with her family and friends. She and Geoff spent two weeks in Belarus with a mission team in 2004.
The service will be at 3 p.m. Saturday at Bolivar High School auditorium with burial to follow at Greenwood Cemetery in Bolivar. A visitation will be from 5 to 8 p.m. today at Murray Funeral Home, Bolivar.
