She enjoyed camping with her family, hosting live music gatherings at her home, singing in the Buffalo Presbyterian Church choir, sewing, crafting and cooking delicious meals for her family and friends.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Charles W. "Bill" Burd; her son, John Burd; and her 12 siblings.

I've only known Violet the last 15 years or so. She was so warm, sincere, and understanding that I adopted her as my second mother. Her children and grandchildren were certainly blessed to have her in their lives.

So many memories of Violet and the Burd family over the years (decades!) She and my mom were such good friends. Remembering her laughter, caring, and love of life.
