In Loving Memory

                                                                  Dorothy M. Burns




Dorothy Burns departed this life on Friday, February 12, 2010. Devoted wife to Jimmy, loving mother, doting grandmother and great-grandmother, and cherished friend, Dorothy touched many lives with her wry sense of humor, her kindness, and her abundant wisdom. Dorothy was a straight shooter, a master at keeping it real.

Dorothy leaves to cherish her precious, unforgettable memory: her loving husband of forty-two years {together forty-four}, James [Jimmy] Burns; six children, Richard Barrow, Yolanda (Clinton) Rice, Depholia (Leslie) Burns, Velvet (Robert) Hudson and Tyrone Burns; seven grandchildren, all whom she loved dearly, Michael (Erica) {who was more like a son to her}, Santanna,  Johnathan, Marcus, James, Carol and DeAndré; brothers and sisters, Willie (Lou) Barrow, Preston (Georgia) Barrow, Maudie (Eugene) Barrow, Lucille Townes, Bernie [Sonny] Barrow and Cynthia [Sue] Barrow; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many caring friends.

Rest in peace, Dorothy. Your spirit lives on in the hearts of all who love you.
