Melinda Jane Burns
Born July 9th 1940 Entered into rest June 30th 2022
Today our hearts broke, we lost a wife, mother, grandmother mentor, sister and friend.
Her unconditional love sustained us throughout our lives, even though we new this day would come. We never realized how intense it would be. Melinda was united with other family members as well as her 1st born child, she passed from a heart attack at Swedish Medical in Englewood Colorado, her son Matthew Burns, son Douglas Burns, daughter Cathy Burns and Cheryl Burns at her side.
Our mother demonstrated 1 Corinthians 13:4-13, her love never failed, it was kind, never envious or rude nor provoking, it bears all things she spoke no evil.
The spark in her eyes were for her children and grew brighter with each Grand child and great grand children.
