She was preceded in death by her father, Gerald Burge, in 2002.

There will be a visitation at Sturino Funeral Home on Friday, November 28, 2008, from 3 p.m. until service time at 4 p.m., with Rev. John Miesel from Racine Bible Church officiating. Private burial will follow services. In lieu of flowers, memorials to Serving In Missions (S.I.M.) or Child Evangelism Fellowship (C.E.F.) would be appreciated by the family.
