Lola "Dula" Frances Baird Burress, went to be with the Lord Sunday, June 12, 2016.
Memorial: Expressions of sympathy can be made to The Abbey Church, 10900 Jacksboro Highway, Fort Worth, Texas 76135, where she loved to worship the God she loved so much.
“Dula” was born to Lily Frances Beck Baird and Aaron Irving Baird on Oct. 20, 1917 at home in Quanah, Texas. She gave birth to 10 children along with her husband, Vergel Alva Burress.
Dula was the glue that held the family together after her husband was injured in an accident in the 60s. She was a very strong woman and took no gruff from her kids or anyone else for that matter. She was a great cook and would love you with plenty of food if you happened by. If you went away hungry, it was your own fault. She cared greatly for each and every child born to her kids and their kids. You couldn't find someone that cared more for all the children in her circles (other than their own mothers). She spent many days and nights taking care of those young ones while the parents were taking care of things. She always exemplified the calling of Christ to love one another.
She was preceded in death by five children, Lorie Jean Burress, Alvie Irvin Burress, both who died as infants, James Edward Burress, who was a still birth, Bobbie McCoy Burress who passed on May 1, 2012, Johnny Ray Burress who passed on Sept. 6, 2013.
Survivors: Sons, Vergel Francis Burress and William Allen Burress; daughters, Mary Louise Burress Huddleston, Zelda Ann Burress Stewart, and Ruth Lurene Burress Galmiche; 12 grandchildren; and 16 great grandchildren.
