Stella Cannon, age 88, of Birmingham, chose to be with the Lord Nov. 1, 2019 after a fall in her home. She had struggled with increasing weakness and disability over the last few months, never forgetting to smile and laugh at all jokes. She was a member of McElwain Baptist, The Church at Grants Mill. She was involved with the card ministry at Irondale Baptist Church. Stella was in the Volunteer Association at Montclair Hospital, employed at St Martin’s, Parisian boys department, and Kmart as a security guard. She was preceded in death by her loving husband James Cannon, daughter Angie Cannon Harris, parents Marcus Otis and Myrtice McDowell Sprayberry, sisters Thelma Ruth Ledbetter, and Ola Inez Hughes. She is survived by her daughters Carla Cannon, Lori Bennington Swindall and Patricia Cannon, grandchildren Chris Harris, Sarah Harris Cope, Brandon Madison and Larry Swindall. Visitation will be from 11:30am until 12:30pm Thursday at McElwain Baptist Church with services following. Refreshments will follow at 1:30 to honor those who contributed to her life, and to those lives that she contributed to.
