Elizabeth Ann "Sugar Bear" Cornish entered into this life on January 26th, 1953. Our beloved was born in Wetipquin, Md, to Rose Ann Cornish, and the late Mason Malcolm Burrell, Sr., who preceded her in death, on September 30th, 1990.
Elizabeth attended Wicomico Sr. High School, where she met her high school sweetheart Tyrone Orlando White, Jr, and from that union she conceived two wonderful boys, whom she always said that they were her "first loves in her life!" "Sugarbear" is survived by Tyrone Orland White, Jr., from Winchester, Ca. and Terrance Terrone White from Delaware, Md.
Elizabeth has one sister Sheila Trader, from San Diego, Ca. She and her sister were very close. She remembers her oldest sister as very loving and faithful. Sugarbear has one brother Wendol Lee Cornish from Salisbury, Md. Wendol remembers his oldest sister as being very protective and loving. Even though they lived thousands of miles apart, she talked to him and her mother by phone... everyday. Elizabeth also had a younger brother, which preceded her in death on June 20th, 1990 named Mason Malcolm Burrell, Jr.
Sheila recalls while growing up that Elizabeth was very loving and compassionate, yet strict. When their mother was away at work Sugarbear ran a smooth household. She would tap that head, if her siblings did not follow through with their chores.
Her mother Rose Ann Burrell would tell you that Elizabeth was her "first born" whom she loved dearly and that her daughter had a loving heart and gentle feelings. She says that she will miss their daily talks over the phone. She says that God knows what is best.
Elizabeth's one and only brother-in-Law Ricky Trader, Sr. remembers his sister-in-law, whom he named "Sugarbear" would like to share that she was a gentle soul with the heart of a bear, .and that he will miss their morning talks together over coffee.
Sugarbear will be fòndly remembered by Worthy Smith, Jr., which was her faithful companion of eleven years. They truly loved one another and for the most part.. ,they were inseparable. Their favorite past times were eating at different restaurants, shopping and frequent visits to the Casino. When Elizabeth took her final nap, Worthy said "I've lost my only friend!"
Worthy's daughter, Lisa Mercadel - Bradley, her husband Perell Bradley and their children will greatly miss their beloved "Sugarbear!"
