A. Louise Burkett

LIGONIER — BURKETT – A. Louise, died May 12, 2014, at Bethlen Home, Ligonier. Born June 26, 1921, in Waterford, daughter of the late Bert and Mayme (Kinsey) Jones. Also preceded in death by sister, Helen Boyd; brother, Bill; and beloved husband, H. Woodrow Sr., who died April 7, 1976. Survived by sons, Woody Jr. (Linda Lear) and John (Connie Askins), all of Bolivar; and daughter, Cynthia “Cindy” (Paul) Abram, Johnstown. She cherished her grandchildren, Allyson (Dennis) Eckels, Bolivar; Kimberly Matha (Chris Davis), Erie; Gregory (Stacy Neiderhiser), New Florence area; and Michael (Nikki Gray), Mineral Point; and adored her great-grandchildren, Shayne, Deena and Daniel Eckels; C.J. Matha; Paige, Madisyn and Brody Burkett; and Caleb, Jordyn and Gabriel Burkett. Also survived by her dear brother and sisters, Eugene (Thelma) Jones, Dorothy Fish and Cathrine Shadron, all of Waterford. She was happiest when her family, including her extended family, gathered for holidays, picnics or any celebration. She crafted beautiful personalized photo albums and holiday decorations that her family treasured. A Pirates and Steelers fan, she telegraphed the teams all the good luck she could muster by crossing not only her fingers, but her arms and legs as well. She was the best wife, Mum and Minaw, a family could ever hope for. Memorial contributions may be made either to Robinson Church of the Brethren, 211 High St., Robinson, Pa. 15949, or Ligonier Church of the Brethren, 405 Route 271 North, Ligonier, Pa. 15658.
