She was preceded in death by her loving husband, William N. Burton. She is survived by her sister, Betsy Dalton; her 4 children, Daniel and Diane (Dee) Jackson and Larry and Dick Burton; 6 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. She was a graduate of Shortridge High School and Indiana University. She was an Alpha Omicron Pi at IU and kept contact with her sisters. She was a life-long United Methodist and involved herself in many charitable works including the PEO. Her creativity had an important role in making the Timothy Church Mouse Show successful in ministering to children when television was still black & White. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend to all who came into her life. She always found joy in her work, playfulness with others and intellectual stimulation in debating those she respected. Her smile and positive attitude always brought light into other's days. She often said, "I like looking at the world through my rose colored glasses". A "Celebration of Life" will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 29, in the Wright Chapel at Franklin United Methodist Community, Franklin, IN, with visitation an hour prior. Arrangements are entrusted to Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service & Crema tory, Vandivier-Tudor Chapel .
