Irene Amanda Burt Obituary
Irene was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. She passed away at home on Thursday, July 17, 2014 at the age of 100. She was married to Roy A. Burt (now deceased) with whom she had three children. She was a homemaker who loved the ocean and trips to Pismo Beach where she enjoyed many family vacations. Walking on the beach gathering rocks and shells was something she really enjoyed. In her 60's she began oil painting and became very good at it. She painted many beautiful pictures, some of which hung in her home and some she gave to family.
Irene was a widow for many years. She is survived by her son, Roy E. Burt and his wife, Shirley; her daughters Mary Embry and Lou O'Neal; grandchildren Marc Burt (April Burt), Alysha Haddock, Kristi Embry (Candelario Sotelo Jr.) and Jeff O'Neal (now deceased); great grandchildren, Brad and Blake Burt, Macy Haddock, Kalli Sotelo, Jake O'Neal and Samantha King (Brad King); great great grandchildren, Mylee King and Bradley King; brother and sister-in-law, Lawrence and Mary Martin and sister and brother-in-law, Rosemary and Howard Polland.
There will be no services at Irene's request. Her ashes will be placed in the ocean that she so loved. She will be greatly missed by her family.
A special thank you to Mercy Hospice for their kindness and loving support and care.
