SoVaNow.com / November 27, 2012
Alice Cornelia Pettus Burchett was called home to be with our Lord on Nov. 22, 2012 at the age of ninety-one. She was born on April 6, 1921 to the late Larry C. and Mary Pettus.

Alice received her education in the Mecklenburg County School System. At an early age, she professed her faith and joined the New Liberty Baptist Church where she remained a faithful member until the end. She served her church in various capacities such as Sunday School teacher, Usher Board, secretary of the Church and Deaconess. Alice was united in holy matrimony to the late Henry Archie Burchett and to this union two children were born. Alice was a warm, caring, and loving person who had love in her heart for all people. She loved sewing for family and friends. She also enjoyed cooking, fishing and her flower garden.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her stepfather, John H. Stewart; her siblings, Irene, Ellen, Clarestine, Mary Lee, Gerodie, Lillie, John Jr., and Frank Lee; and granddaughter, Felica. Alice leaves to cherish fond memories, two children: Larry R. Burchett (Renee) and Ronnie Burchett (Sylvia); seven grandchildren: Tanya, LaRhonda, Stacy, Troy, Ronnie A., Kris and Andrew; twenty-one great grandchildren (Marcia-being her special sidekick); one sister, Rebecca Towler; one great aunt, Thelma Carter; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends, including her special friends, Barbara Royal, James Goode and Brandi Lawrence.
