Katie Burson joined her Father in heaven on Feb. 15, 2011, surrounded by those who loved her. Born Dec. 26, 1975, into the Bowden Family of Hickory Flat, Katie was the daughter of Judy Kochner, granddaughter of Bunky and John Bowden, and beloved niece of Gary Bowden and Joan Williams.
Many students of Cherokee County schools remember Mrs. Burson as an amazing teacher who influenced the lives of all the children who were blessed to know her. Katie's greatest role, however, was that of a wife to Scott and a mother to Daniel and Bethany. It was this role and her volunteer work at Browns Bridge Community Church that defined her last eight earthly years. Loved by all she met, Katie was the epitome of the Proverbs 31 woman. Her perseverance, love, grace and faith carried her through her eight-year battle with cancer. It is with joyful hearts that her family celebrates her ultimate healing as she dances with Jesus.
The family will receive friends Thursday, Feb. 17, from 5-8 p.m. at McDonald and Son Funeral Home. They welcome friends to celebrate Katie's life on Friday, Feb. 18, at 3 p.m. at Browns Bridge Community Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Katie Burson's medical account at www.hhmin.org.
