Rev. Ellie Herman "Teet" Stoudemire age 76, a resident of Prattville, Alabama passed away Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at Prattville Baptist Hospital.  Funeral service will be held Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 2pm from Locust Bluff United Methodist Church, 2110 Alternate County Road 21 North Prattville, Alabama with Rev. Michael Abrams, Pastor and Rev. Ben Carter , Pastor officiating.  Burial to follow at the Locust Bluff United Methodist Church Cemetery with Military Honors.

Rev. Ellie Stoudemire was born on April 20, 1941, in Prattville, Alabama to the late Lee Stoudemire and Willie Mae Stoudemire-Goodson.

He was preceded in death by his beloved daughter, Felicia Stoudemire and brother, Willie Stoudemire.

He was a graduate of Autauga County Training School in 1959. He served in the United States Army 1960-1962. He was employed by ALCOA Aluminum in Cleveland, OH for about 20 years. He later moved from Cleveland, OH back to Prattville, AL reuniting with Locust Bluff United Methodist Church, where he also served as pastor for 28 years. He worked at Union Camp for 25 years, and retired in 2004.

Rev. Stoudemire was a man who instilled in others to always do their best; and he always tried to see the best in others. He believed in giving people a chance. His favorite picture which was hung in his pastoral office for many years displayed the helping hand "He Ain't Heavy" which was his motto. At heart, he was a "Country Boy" that enjoyed fishing, farming, and attending his cattle with his best friend Mack Harmon. Rev. Stoudemire was a member of the River Region Ministerial Alliance which was a fellowship of local pastors.

Rev. Stoudemire entered into the valley of the shadow of death Tuesday, February 6, 2018, at Prattville Baptist Hospital.

Rev. Stoudemire leaves behind a legacy of inspiration, strength, and endurance. Cherishing his memories forever are his beloved wife Gloria, Children: Rochelle (Andre) Tucker, GA, Eric (Audrey) Macon GA, Sonya (Tim) Sumter, SC, Derrick Tampa, FL, Renee (Eric) Houston, TX and Esmond-Las Vegas, NV. Grandchildren: Jaren, Torean, Racquel, Erica, Kendal, Kaitlyn, Nichlas, Ashley, Lauren, Kaleb and Kameryn. One great-grandchild: Ariah. One beloved sister Gloria Jean Stoudemire, Prattville, AL.

And Stella Golson-PrattviIIe, AL and one brother-in-law, Albert Smith, Detroit, Ml. A host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

I am truly sorry for your loss. May the true God watch over your family during this most grievous time. May you find comfort from the words found at

I am very sorry for your loss. In times of loss and grief we search for comfort , 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Says "Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of tender mercies and the God of ALL comfort, who comforts us in all our trials".although we will miss our loved ones we have reason to have hopes of seeing them again John 5:28,29 Says "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". My deepest sympathies go out to you at this time.
