Elizabeth "Eli" Burr

September 12, 1991 - May 16, 2021

Eli Burr left us suddenly on Sunday May 16, 2021 in Virginia Beach. Eli was born on September 12, 1991 to Dennis and Sarah Sole in Midlothian, Virginia. She was a master’s graduate from Longwood University and had been teaching in the Chesapeake Public school system for the last 6 years at Sparrow Road Intermediate and B.M. Williams primary.

Eli met the love of her life, Shawn Burr while attending Longwood University. After graduation, Eli and Shawn relocated to Virginia Beach. They were married on December 10, 2016. Their union brought forth two children, Leila Rose and Maddox Ryan. Eli’s family was everything to her, nothing was more important. In her spare time, Eli loved to go to the park with her family, suntanning at the beach or pool, watching tv or movies, SHOPPING, or spending time with her friends. 

Left to cherish her memory are her parents Sarah and Dennis Sole, her husband Shawn Burr, two children Leila and Maddox Burr, as well as a huge extended family and hundreds of friends.

A visitation will be held from 3-7 PM on Friday, May 28th at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5033 Rouse Dr., Virginia Beach, VA. Everyone who loved Eli is welcome. A service will be held on Saturday, May 29th at 2 PM, at Liberty Live Church, 1801 Sara Drive, Chesapeake VA, 23320. In lieu of flowers, please contact  Kasey Brooks (757) 235-1239 or Chris Brooks (757)646-3918 to see what the family needs.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
