BURKE, Verna Emma

November 22, 1931 – September 7, 2016

Wednesday, September 7, 2016,  Verna passed away peacefully at Pinecrest Home for the Aged.  Verna has joined her parents George/Emma Bunn, brother Ormande Bunn and sisters Merle Patterson and May King; also husband Donald Burke and youngest son Wayne Burke in heaven.  I’m sure they were all at the gate to greet her. Verna always had a positive attitude about life, saw the best in people, laughed and always got the last word in.

Left to cherish memories are her sister Sandra Giroux; daughter Janice Prairie (Lawrence Parth); son Teck (Juliet) Burke.  Grandchildren Chrisopher Burke and Brandie (Todd) Grayson, two beautiful great grandchildren Brody Burke and Tristen Grayson.

There are many Uncles, Aunts and Cousins that I’m sure have fond memories of Verna, as well many friends in Manitouwadge, Ontario.  Special fondness to Uncle Lenard King and family for taking Mom under their wings many times. 

A private family service will be held at a later date.

I would like to thank all staff of Birchwood Terrace and Pinecrest Home for the care given to Mom.
