Memphis, TN

Celebration of Life Services for Burrell M. Teague, 92, will be held at Memphis Funeral Home on this Saturday at 2:00 p.m., with Visitation beginning at noon. The burial will be in Memphis Memory Gardens immediately following the funeral.

Burrell went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, February 14, 2017. He was born April 25, 1924 in McNairy County as the fifth child of Pleas and Melissa Teague. He joined the U.S. Marines after graduating from high school and served in the Pacific during World War II. He was employed at International Harvester Company in Memphis, TN as an Inspector and retired at age 58.

He was an avid golfer and played well into his 80's; only quitting then because he had outlived all of his golfing buddies. He still enjoyed watching golf on television until the end. Another thing he enjoyed was traveling to all the states in the union – by car, motor home, train, plane and ship. His last state to visit was Michigan. He was also an awesome gardener, growing corn, tomatoes, squash, green beans, etc.

In addition to his parents, Burrell was preceded in death by his brothers, Cletis, Herod, Hugh and sister, Katy Evans. He also was preceded in death by his wife, Virginia.

He is survived by his daughter, Pamela Teague Steelman (Jerry) of Atlanta, Georgia; son, Don of Memphis, and a 96 year old sister, Mary Lou Herwig, of Union City, Georgia. He also leaves behind a host of nieces and nephews in Tennessee, Mississippi, Texas and Georgia.
