                                                                The Celebration of the Life of Wanda Pearl Burnell-Scott

Our beloved sister and Pastor Wanda Pearl Burnell-Scott was born in Camden, Arkansas on August 18, 1954 to Perry and Algerine Burnell.  Wanda was the last of ten children born to the Burnell Family.  Wanda moved to Atwater, California in August of 1957 along with her mother and two of her brothers James and Johnnie Ray Burnell. Later that year they moved to Oakland, California where she attended Franklin Elementary School. 

In 1963 she and her family moved to Santa Ana, California, where she attended Franklin Elementary School, Smedley Junior High, and Valley High School from which she graduated in June 1972. 

Wanda lived life to the fullest.  She always had a smile on her face.  Wanda is the mother of Jermaine Jones of Anaheim, California, LaToya Scott of Charlotte, North Carolina and David Scott Jr. of Anaheim, California.  She was a grandmother to granddaughter MacKenzie and grandson Mason of whom she loved dearly

Wanda loved her children and she made every effort to make sure that they had a good life, she put them in all kinds of academic programs to make sure that they were expose to programs that would give them an advantage in education.  She had them enrolled in some of the best schools in Santa Ana, which offered higher learning courses.  

Wanda worked for several years as an in-home Healthcare Provider throughout Orange County and Lakewood, California.  She was well appreciated by those she served in that capacity. She was able to minister to those that she served in her capacity as a Healthcare Provider. In many cases she made those she cared for come alive through prayer and the healing power of God through the laying on of hands.

Wanda was a Great Prayer Warrior, she practiced her love of God in being a prayer partner at (TBN)Trinity Broadcasting Network, a Christian Television Station for more than twenty-five years.  Some of those whom she prayed with would callback to give their testimonies of God’s great healing in their lives and body.  She always gave God the Glory for the life that she has lived.  Her conversations were always about God and His miracle working power in the lives of people. 

Wanda attended Gospel Light Church of God in Christ in Santa Ana, California where she spent the majority of her early church life.  As a Pastor, Wanda exhibited a great love for people and as a result many people came to faith in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Wanda passed from this life on January 27, 2021 to join her Heavenly Father who was waiting to receive her along with Mom, Dad her two older Brothers Gene Edward Joshua, and Venus Beasley Burnell who preceded her in death. No more pain, no more suffering, and no more afflictions but unspeakable Joy full of the Glory of God.  She fought the good fight, she finished the race, and she remained faithful to the end and now she is seated in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

Wanda leaves behind to mourn her passing her husband David Scott Sr. and her three children, Jermaine Jones, LaToya Scott, and David Scott Jr.  She also leaves behind two grandchildren, a granddaughter MacKenzie and grandson Mason as well as seven siblings, Ruth Reed of Huntington Beach California, Evelyn Burnell of Oakland California, Perry Burnell Jr. of Placentia, California, Charles Burnell of Santa Ana, California, Princess McLemore of Santa Ana, James Burnell of Santa Ana, California and Johnnie Ray Burnell of Murrieta, California and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
