Memories Timeline


  1. Candle 1So sorry to hear of Kathy’s passing! I went to school with Kathy. She also brought meals to my Sister. Kathy was a wonderful and loving person. My prayers and sympathy for her family.

  2. Candle 5Kathy cooked hamburgers every Friday for everyone and anyone that came to her house. Not only did she cook them, she joyfully cooked them and made sure everyone that wanted one(or 2 or 3) got their fill before closing down the kitchen. My family received those burgers and love on an impromptu trip to go shopping at a clothing warehouse there in Bonne Terre, with Danny and Carla Pyeatt and A’Laura, our beloved Pastor and friends, at that time.
    Kathy was also a big encouragement to me after the unexpected death of my precious baby boy, Patrolman Lane Burns. She loved him and was proud of him, because he was my child and because he proudly protected the community of her beloved city of Bonne Terre, Mo. He was killed doing that very thing. Little did we know that she would go to be with Jesus a little over 14 months after that.
    Kathy was loved by us and she will not be forgotten by the Burns family!

  3. Candle 1Loved Kathy such a sweet spirit she had .Prayers for her family her husband and brothers sisters hugs we won’t ever forget her and I know her family in heaven glad to have her home with them ♥️see us later sis 💋

    God has you in his keeping
    I have you in my heart
