EARLEAN ELIZABETH DOUGLAS
Earlean Elizabeth Douglas, known to many as “Momma” or “Squirrel”, was born on June 26, 1930, to Oshia and Sidney Douglas in Marion Station Maryland, and returned to the lord on August 17, 2022 in her home surrounded by family.
Earlean moved to Northampton County, VA at the age of 5 and attended Miss Stevens School and Tidewater Institute. She graduated from Northampton High School in 1949 and attended Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. In 1992 she retired from Perdue where she spent 21 years in the cafeteria. As well as serving others in the cafeteria, she provided a ride to work to many workers over the 21 years by driving them to Perdue. At an early age Earlean accepted Christ and became a member of Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church Capeville.
Earlean was the original “no child left behind” by making sure no child was stranded after school events. Not only did she pick up her own grandchildren but she made sure all of the children who needed rides had one. Momma loved children and would always make sure each child received $1 for their birthday. She took great delight in cooking for family and friends and was well known for making the best Macaroni and Cheese every Sunday.
She was predeceased by her Brother Sidney Douglas, Sister Aletha Carey, Daughter Valerie Douglas and Son Anthony Douglas. Those left to cherish her memories are her daughter Linda Covil, daughter in law Annie Douglas, grandchildren Valfreda Hawkins, Latricia “Sugar P” Cottrell (Craig), Anthony Antwain Miller and William Douglas (Anna), 7 great grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends.
