She was preceded in death by her husband, David “Pap” Burson; a grandson, Elijah Joseph Kaufman; a sister, Julia Rader and two brothers, Jim Heaton and Lee Heaton.

Per her wishes, no services will be held; instead, she will be laid to rest with her husband and grandson at a private family ceremony at Crest Haven Memorial Gardens, New Waterford.
