Wanda June Burton

Forest Hills

Wanda June Burton of Forest Hills, Kentucky, passed away at midnight on March 7, 2022.

A disciple of Jesus Christ who shared his message to everyone she met.  She was 80 years old. She was born in Paducah, Kentucky, on June 1, 1941. She moved to Michigan as a child, and graduated from Wayne Memorial High School in Wayne, Michigan, in 1959. In 1993, she moved back to her home in Paducah. Wanda loved babies and animals, especially chihuahuas. She also loved to bowl, dance, play the organ, and make things. Most recently she enjoyed taking pottery classes at the Paducah School of Art and Design at West Kentucky Community and Technical College. Over the years she also painted, crocheted, macramé, restored furniture, and sewed. She enjoyed cooking and baking in her well-organized kitchen, and was known for her chicken and dumplings, and chili (made with macaroni), and especially her winter candy—peanut butter rolls, fudge, and hard candy. The past year she lived in a tiny house next to her son Dale who stayed by her side through many trials the past three years, and was with her when she passed.

Wanda was preceded in death by her daughter, Deborah Ann Sammons; mother, Mary Earlene Stanley; father, Roy Duley Burton; brother, Frank Roy Burton, and nephew, Mark David Burton.
