Picayune, MS

Margaret Ann Sheffield Marquez, a cherished soul of Picayune, Mississippi, concluded her vibrant journey of 72 years on February 24, 2024. A matriarch in her community and a beacon of kindness, Ann's life was a testament to the enduring power of love, family, and education.Born to the late W.B. "Buntsy" Sheffield, Jr. and Betty Belle Bunker Sheffield, Ann's early life was steeped in the values that would define her: resilience, grace, and a ceaseless curiosity about the world around her. Her spirit was a blend of her father's strength and her mother's compassion, qualities that she carried into every chapter of her life.Ann's faith was her guiding light, and she served her church with the same enthusiasm with which she approached her family and career. As a retired elementary school teacher, Ann's passion for education touched the lives of countless young minds, inspiring a love for learning that would illuminate their paths long after leaving her classroom. Her gentle presence could often be found in the quiet corners of the First Baptist Church of Picayune, where she dedicated countless hours to the service of others.In her leisure, Ann found joy in the simple pleasures — the Arts, a good book, and the laughter of her grandchildren. Her hands, ever-creative, wove warmth and kindness into the meals she shared with loved ones. Ann's home was an open door, a place where friends became family, and memories were etched into the hearts of all who entered.As we say goodbye to Ann, we are reminded of the impact one life can have on so many. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Carrie Ann, whose memory was a source of strength and inspiration for her. Ann's story is not one of conclusion but of continuation, as her influence ripples through the future generations of her friends and family.Ann's devotion to her family was unparalleled. As the beloved wife of John Vincent Marquez, she was a partner in every sense, navigating the ebb and flow of life with an unwavering commitment to joy and mutual support. Her legacy lives on through: her children, Joshua Carr (Deborah) Smith, Jennifer (Larry) Sheffield Gutierrez, Arma "Amy" Margaret Marquez, Anna "Katy" Katherine (Tim) Carter, and Angela "Angie Ruth (Jerry) Carnathan; her grandchildren, Elizabeth Griffin, Kacey (Nick) Chimento, Ashley (Jake) Blauvelt, Brina (Kenny) Gutierrez, Ada Carter, Townes Carter, Haven Carter, L.J. Carnathan; her great grandchild, soon to be born, Baby Boy Blauvelt; her brothers, Billy (Linda) Sheffield and Bruce (Suzanne) Sheffield; her niece, Laura Anne (Ernie) Landrum; and nephew, Alex (Sarah) Sheffield.A Celebration of Life for Margaret Ann Sheffield Marquez will be held on Tuesday, February 27, 2024, at 1:00PM at the First Baptist Church of Picayune, reflecting the warmth and community she fostered throughout her remarkable life.Visitation will also be Tuesday, February 27, 2024, from 12:00PM until 1:00PM at the First Baptist Church of Picayune.Arrangements are under the direction of McDonald Funeral Home.Dr. Tony Lambert will officiate the service.She will be profoundly missed, but the love she shared will forever be cherished by all who were fortunate enough to know her and her beautiful heart.

Picayune, MS

Laura Michelle Feasel, just 49 years young, lost her battle with cancer on February 15, 2024 at her home in Picayune, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Alabama on October 06, 1974, the daughter of David Sherrial and Pamela Loretta (Castenedo) Stanfield. Laura grew up in the Bay St. Louis area where she enjoyed hanging out with her friends. Laura was a social butterfly coming up, making many friends along the way. She attended Bay St. Louis schools, graduating with the Tiger Class of 1993. Laura always had a caring heart for others, so it's no surprise that she spent her life as a care giver, taking care of people. She has called Picayune home for the past several years and spent the last couple of those battling cancer. Laura fought valiantly despite the odds being stacked against her from the start, because that's who she was. Laura was a sweet, kind, and funny lady to those who truly knew her. She was a tad on the shy side, but would warm up to you once she got to know you. In her spare time she really enjoyed Tik-Tok, mainly watching but also making a few videos as well. She is fondly remembered as a very loving sister, wife and soul mate to Mike, mother, and trusted friend to so many, who will be forever loved and missed. Laura was preceded in death by her parents David and Pamela Stanfield. Left to cherish her memories are: her devoted husband of more than 12 years, Mike; her children: Ashley (Brian) Stanfield, Alicia Feasel, and Ashley Feasel; and her sisters Ramona (Ronnie) Penton of Bay St. Louis and Danielle Stanfield of the Necaise community, along with numerous extended family members and more friends that you can imagine. Her final wishes were to be cremated, which her family is honoring. A Celebration of Life in her honor will be held at a later date. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Feasel family in their time of need and asks that you remember them in your thoughts and prayers through the days ahead.

Kelli Michele (James) Sowles

Apr 25, 1968 - Jan 28, 2024

Picayune, MS

Kelli Michele (James) Sowles, 55, of Picayune, MS., left this world way too soon, on January 28, 2024, at Highland Community Hospital in Picayune. Kelli was born on April 25, 1968, in Gulfport, MS to her parents John W. and Margaret Elizabeth (Garland) James, Sr. Kelli graduated from Harrison Central High School, class of 1986. Growing up, Kelli loved playing softball and spending her time with her best friend and partner in crime, Neecy. If Kelli was a flame, then Neecy was the fuel and together they made memories, the kind that always ended with belly laughing until it hurt! But make no mistake, you definitely wanted Kelli on your side in any butt-kicking contest! She was wild, loud, and easily the life of any party! Kelli prided herself in caregiving, and she was the best at what she did. From taking care of her momma and Cedo, to literally putting any and everyone's needs before her own, Kelli was one of a kind and simply had the biggest heart and most loving nature to those she loved fiercely. Family was most important to Kelli! Her talent in the kitchen was a staple at any family get together and NOBODY'S red beans, gumbo, potato salad, crab pasta, chicken and dumplings, chicken and rice, and of course her buffet of breakfast foods on any given morning, will come close to topping the love and dedication she put into each dish that brought her family and friends together. Kelli was a best friend to her brothers, she was the rose between two thorns, and not one of her momma's pots didn't have a dent in it from hitting Robert in the head after Johnny told her too. They were inseparable and she was invincible! Aside from being in the kitchen, Kelli loved to ride four wheelers, fish out front, and get sun kissed on the beach. Her love for the Kansas City Chiefs went unmatched and she LOVED seeing her "boyfriend" Patrick Mahomes sling that ball down the field. If you knew Kelli, then you also knew that she loved her son, Steven, and took pride in growing up raising him. Not once calling you by your given name, Kelli had a nickname for everybody she loved. Hearing those nicknames and looking into her beautiful green eyes will be missed and forever cherished by all who knew and loved her. Kelli is preceded in death by her father, John W. James, Sr.; her Maternal Grandparents, Murphy and Margaret Garland; and her Paternal Grandparents, Artie R. and Lela (Netto) James. Left to cherish the wonderful memories she leaves them with, her son Steven Sowles, Jr. of Gulfport; her mother and stepfather, Margaret (Pat "Cedo") Rizzo of Gulfport; her sister and best friend Janene "Neecy" (Chris) King of Gulfport; her brothers Johnny (Patti) James of Picayune, Robert (Cathy) James of Gulfport, and Aaron (Christina) James of Saucier; her two nieces Hali (Tim) Martino of Saucier, and Lexi James of Biloxi; her Aunt Melinda and Uncle Scott Simon of Gulfport; her Uncle Michael (Avis) Garland of Gulfport; her boyfriend, Keith (Duck) Baughman of Picayune; her best friend of 41 years, Tina "Tee Tee" (Will) Massel of Slidell, LA.; and her four-legged baby, Chief. Kelli leaves a legacy of numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends whom she loved. Kelli's wishes, which she made known, were to be cremated, and her family will honor her wishes. Services for Kelli will be held Friday, February 2, 2024, at Trinity Funeral Services in McHenry, MS, beginning at 1:30 PM for a memorial visitation and a funeral service at 2:30 PM. Kelli will be interred at McHenry Gardens Cemetery next to her daddy, directly following her service. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Sowles/James family during this difficult time and would ask that you remember her entire family in your thoughts and prayers over the coming days. To to the family or in memory of Kelli Michele (James) Sowles, please
