Alta Burnett

BURNETT, ALTA, 89 of Taylorsville, KY, returned to her Heavenly Father Wednesday, March 13, 2013 surrounded by her loving family.

She was retired from General Electric, but enjoyed many years as a wife, mother and homemaker; spending much of her time caring and loving on the children of the family.

Alta had a gentle spirit with an infectious smile and had a kind word for everyone she met. She prided herself on being "Doctor Grandma" to all in her care. Alta was a member of Elk Creek Baptist Church.

Left to cherish her memory is her beloved husband of 66 years, Clarence Burnett; along with daughter, Connie Decker (Bruce) and son Thomas Burnett (Debbie); as well as three grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and three great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by three sisters Alene Burton, Dorothy Kerns and Mabel Barnes; two brothers, Joe Kerns, and Dallas Kerns; along with a host of nieces and nephews.

She will be greeted in heaven by her parents, Hobart and Pearl (Coffey) Kerns; four brothers Glenn, Charlie, Roy and little Bud as well as her precious great-great-grandson, Hunter.

Visitation will be at Evergreen Funeral Home in Louisville, Friday, from noon-8p.m. The funeral service will be on Saturday at 2 p.m. Gifts may be made to Hosparus of Louisville or Kosair Childrens Hospital.
