Not sure what to say?

We are so saddened to hear of Nancy's death. Our condolences to Jerry and Gary & Nancy Bennett. We use to have so much fun at the lake when family would gather for reunions. Nancy truly had the gift of gab and always kept us in stitches. Say "hello" to the family in heaven. One day we will all be together again. Love you.

So sorry for the loss of Nancy but yet happy that she is "home free" ....memories will help through the coming years.

Sorry for the loss of your loved one, may the True God of comfort bring you peace of mind!

Nancy's Obituary

Nancy Lee (Bennett) Burns, of Hicks Lake near Evart, passed away Friday July 5, 2013 at Spectrum Blodgett in East Grand Rapids. She was 65. Mrs. Burns was born May 8, 1948 in Lansing to Charles Shore Bennett and Elsie Elizabeth (Gibbs) Bennett. She was a 1966 graduate of Lansing Everett High School and attended Michigan State University for 2 years. Nancy married Gerald E. Burns on January 22, 1971 in Mason, Michigan. She had worked for Spartan Plastics in Holt and for Dart Container in Mason. She coached for Special Olympics in Holt. Gerald and Nancy moved from Mason to Hicks Lake in 2005. Nancy's health in recent years limited her activities. She said " It was my legs that didn't work, nothing wrong with my mouth! It was my attitude that kept me from being bed ridden, my smile and my sense of humor." She was a member of the Evart United Methodist Church and enjoyed knitting and word puzzles. Her husband, Gerald E. Burns of Evart, survives Nancy along with her brother Gary (Nancy) Bennett of Evart and an aunt & uncle Darlene and Dale Golombisky of Evart. Her parents preceded her in death. Memorial services for Nancy Lee Burns are 1:00pm Saturday July 13th at the Evart United Methodist Church with Pastor Melodye Surgeon-Rider officiating. The family will meet with friends at noon until time of services at the church.
