A Memorial Service for Kitty H. Burke, 87, of Anniston, will be at 2 pm on Sunday, February 21, 2021 in the sanctuary of Anniston First United Methodist Church. Reverend Tammy Jackson and Reverend Davis Johnson will officiate. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church.
Kitty passed away on February 15, 2021 at NE Alabama Regional Medical Center.
Kitty was born in Gadsden, but she was raised in Attalla. She was the only sister to five brothers. Her family came to Anniston when her father got a job as superintendent at one of the foundries in town. Soon after arriving in Anniston, the family joined Anniston First United Methodist Church.
Kitty has always loved Anniston First, and she has offered the congregation her gift of music for decades. She helped save the choir money by laundering choir robes and helping to mend music. Kitty helped form the Dill Sunday School Class for singles, which led to many happy marriages from within the class. Kitty has given the gift of music to churches in Anniston throughout her life. She has been generous and loyal to her family and community.
Through the years, Kitty enjoyed 34 years of employment at RMC Federal Credit Union, many of those years serving as manager.
Kitty is survived by her sister-in-law, Catherine Burke; numerous nieces and nephews; and her adopted family Louise Ballenger, Kristy (Geoff) White, Anna Grace White, Mei Li White, Scott (Emmalie) Whitney, Ramsey Whitney, and Bryant Whitney.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Louie Clyde and Lelia Jones Burke, and her five brothers John, Louie, Marvin, Bill, and Frank.
The family would like to recognize and thank her friend, Willie Dennard, for everything he's done through the years to help Kitty.
In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations to the music department or to the Shepherd's Table Ministry, both in care of Anniston First United Methodist Church.
In accordance with the state-mandated health order, guests to the service and visitation are kindly asked to wear masks and maintain social distancing.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
I will always remember how sweet and kind Miss Kitty has been to me and others around her, she always took special care of her dogs throughout the years which is how I became a part of her life for the past 30 years. I know that she's enjoying her babies in heaven and singing to our Lord with joy.
