Text size

Marian Elee McBurnett passed peacefully to be with her Lord on October 12, 2017 in Tulsa, OK. Marian was born on February 26, 1928 in Stigler, OK, to parents, Marion and Bernice (Sory) Campbell. During her 89 years she was a beloved daughter, sister, cousin, and aunt; a devoted and loving wife; and a faithful member of Ash Street Baptist Church. At the time of her death, she was both the oldest living member and longest serving member of the church.
Following graduation from Hartshorne High School she moved to Muskogee and enrolled at the Draughon School of Business. In Muskogee she met the love of life, Robert L. "Bill" McBurnett, whom she married in 1948. Together they celebrated 63 years of marriage before Bill's death in 2011.
She is survived by her brother and sister, Bill Campbell and Helen Carlton, of Tulsa, OK; sister-in-law, Mildred Ewing, of Muskogee; brother-in-law, James McBurnett of Muskogee. All who knew Marian mourn her passing, but rejoice in the promise that she is now in the presence of her Redeemer and reunited with loved ones.
A service in celebration of her life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at Ash Street Baptist Church, 1521 Ash Street, in Muskogee with Brother David Yarborough officiating. Services are under the direction of Lescher-Millsap Funeral Home of Muskogee.
