Mrs. Dorother Sturgis age 74, passed away Wednesday June 24, 2020 at Select Medical - Baptist Medical Center in Jackson, MS. A visitation will be held on Thursday July 2, 2020 at Wolf Funeral Services in Morton, MS from 10:00 AM until 10:50 AM. A funeral service will be held at Wolf Funeral Services Chapel on Thursday July 2, 2020 at 11:00 AM. Pastor Reginald McCoy will officiate. Burial will be at Pleasant Gift M.B. Church in Morton (Branch), MS.

Mrs. Sturgis was born to the late Mr. & Mrs. Ollie Lloyd of Morton, MS. She received her bachelor’s degree from Alcorn State University.
Upon graduation from Alcorn, Mrs. Sturgis began her teaching career at W. H. Holtzclaw School in Crystal Springs, MS, where she met and married her husband. Most of her career was spent as a teacher at Morton Attendance Center, first at Bettye Mae Jack Middle School and then at Morton High School.

She was faithful to Christ and joined Pleasant Gift M.B. Church at an early age. For many years, Mrs. Sturgis served as the President of the Pleasant Gift Women’s Missionary Auxiliary and, later, as a member of the Mothers’ Board for the Church. She was interested in improving race relationships. She served as a Program Guide for the annual Black History programs and offered direction, advice, and information to promote the events. Mrs. Sturgis was also a member of the Scott County District Missionary Baptist Association with Rev. Charles E. Bell, moderator. She was a faithful member of Pleasant Gift M.B. Church until her health failed.

Mrs. Sturgis was a very loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was a sociable and outgoing person who loved people and was very active in the church and her community. She was fiercely loyal and loved her family, friends, and fellow church members. Mrs. Sturgis was always willing to help anyone in any way that she could. Even though she retired from teaching, she was a teacher of many, right up until the end.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Gibson Sturgis, Jr.; parents, Ollie and Mary Alice Lloyd; and her son, Lloyd Jarmal Sturgis.

Mrs. Sturgis is survived by her daughters, Tammie and Tina Sturgis; brother, Sylvanus Lloyd of Los Angeles, CA; grandchildren, Bruce, Blake, Ahmad, Talib and Alena; aunt, Earma Lee Brown of San Diego, CA; sisters-in-law, Martha, Sherron (Walter), Barbara, and Ruby (Douglas); brothers-in-law, Angus, Thomas (Pat), and Gilbert; and a host of relatives and friends.
