Lela "Tootsie" Louise Herron, age 84, of Marble Hill, Missouri was welcomed into Heaven by her Lord and Savior on Monday, November 2, 2020 at the Woodland Hills Nursing Home in Marble Hill.

She was born on February 22, 1936 in Lutesville, Missouri. The daughter of James Madison “Mattie” and Ruthie Caroline Seabaugh Stratton. She married Jimmie Herron on December 5, 1953 and he preceded her in death on June 7, 1993.

Tootsie worked at the International/ Paramount Hat factory in Marble Hill until its closing and she retired. She got bored sitting at home, so she went back to work at the Henschel Hat Factory in Sedgewickville, Missouri, until she retired a second time. She was a faithful member of Mt. Zion General Baptist Church in Marble Hill, until illness took her mind from us. She would sing in the choir, sing specials, and testify. She would always say, "I want to stand for my Lord, cause I want him to stand for me." She would often sing, “There’s a Higher Power,” and by the end of the song we understood what it was saying. She is going to be missed by all who knew her, but her song will continue to be carried on through her family.

Survivors include her children; James William Herron, Barbara Joan (Rev. Phillip) Jordan, Janet Alene Herron, Jeannie Caroline (Rev. David) Jordan, John Robert Herron all of Marble Hill, Missouri; and Mary Susan “Sue” Herron of Chaffee, Missouri. Brothers; James Arley Stratton of Mt. Sterling, Illinois, and John Lynn (Ann) Stratton. Sisters; Mary Helen Fowler, Agnes Alene “Snookie” Atchison, Francis Gail Garner all of Marble Hill, Missouri. 6 grandchildren; Elizabeth Ann (Rev. Ray) Greenlee of Advance, Missouri; James Daniel (Regina) Jordan, Jeremiah Wayne Jordan, Jessica Lynn (Rev. Jonathan) Barton, Rev. David Michael Jordan all of Marble Hill, Missouri, and Rev. Joshua Wade (Tora) Jordan of Patton, Missouri. 10 Great-grandchildren; Logan Daniel, Whitney Marie Jordan, Alisa Marie (Joey) Radford, and Courtney Michelle Haines (Michael Bievenue) all of Marble Hill; Hailey Nicole Jordan (David Hess), Rev. Brandon Michael, Mary Elizabeth, Breanna Nicole, and Megan Rae Greenlee all of Advance, Missouri, Ryan Matthew Daniel Barton of Marble Hill, Missouri. 2 great-great grandchildren James David Rogers and Daniel Paul Radford of Marble Hill and one on the way. Several nieces, nephews, and relatives.

In addition to her husband she was preceded in death by her parents, a daughter Joyce Elaine Herron; two sisters Dorothy Ellen Stratton, and Bessie Ruth Cook. One brother, Fairley Madison Stratton. Four Brothers in law, Raymond Fowler, Frank Hernandez, Perry Cook, and Eldon Atchison.

Graveside Services will be held on Friday, November 6th, 2020 at 2:00PM at the Mt. Zion Cemetery in Marble Hill, With the Rev. Phillip Jordan and Rev. David Jordan officiating.
