Desiree’ Andrea Bell, born on the 22nd of June 1982, was a role model to so many people. Many wouldn't be the same person if she hadn't touched our hearts.
Desiree’ faced many challenges in life, but time and time again she triumphed. She was able to graduate high school on time, despite dropping out to care for her siblings. She managed to fly a plane, despite never going to aviation school. She was able to shelter her children, despite being unemployed due to dire health conditions. She was able to thrive in a place anyone else would fold. She was a woman of great strength, determination, and faith. Giving, loving, and teaching were in her nature. She loved and gave what she could and more. She offered advice to any willing to hear it, guided by her firm moral compass.
If Desiree’ were here today, she'd credit Jesus for making it as far as she did. From her tattered first ever bible that she read daily, to her countless decor of Christian faith, Desiree put her soul and heart in being close with Jesus, and Jesus carried her through the most difficult of times. Now that she's gone, she'd urge everyone here to find strength to carry on through Jesus; her final wish. We will remember Desiree’ Andrea Bell as a mother, family member, friend, and child of God.
