Died: Nov. 20, 2015
Carole Beth Burnette, 77, passed away peacefully on November 20, 2015, in South Carolina after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.
Beth was born in Springfield, IL spent her early childhood in Kewanee, and then moved to Evanston with her family in her early teens. It's there that she put down roots and eventually enjoyed raising a family of her own. Beth moved to the Washington D.C. area to pursue her career in Association work where she began an interest in historic homes and American history. Ultimately, Beth moved back to Illinois to be near family, settling in Geneva, and finally retiring in St Charles. During that time she performed charity work through her church and Tri-City Family Services. From early on Beth had a passion for camping, which she passed on to her children.
Beth has been reunited with her mother, Ruth Welty; and father, Paul Comer.
She is survived by her three daughters, Ruth Perino, Rebecca Starovich, and Deborah Burnette; and four grandchildren, Taylor, Lauren, Evan, and Zoe.
A celebration of her life will take place Saturday, June 4, 2016, at The York Center Church of the Brethren, 1S071 Luther Ave, Lombard, IL 60148.
In lieu of flowers and cards, please send donations to The York Center Church of the Brethren.
