State of the Easter Egg

Every year, the White House displays Easter eggs from each of the fifty states. Here are this year's eggs. Massachusetts' submission was a Cheers diorama...sure, it's a bit dated, but it's a classic. I would kind of like to see a Big Dig Egg, though.
My favorites were the simpler ones, like Maine and Kansas. Oh, and Rhode Island totally glammed it up this year. What is up with Mississippi's egg, though? It's a picture of a woman, but I can't tell if she's supposed to be Barbara Bush or some famous Mississippi resident.
I posted about the eggs last year, but this year I have to thank Frances for the reminder.

The Mississippi Easter egg doesn't look much like Barbara or Laura Bush, and they aren't from Mississippi, so I don't know why I even thought that. The mystery remains.

I think she maybe Burnita Shelton Matthews a Mississippi native and the first woman appointed to serve on a US district court in 1949 by Harry S Truman.
