BURNS, Teri L.
Age 74, of Arcanum, went to be with our Heavenly Father on Thursday, May 27, 2021 during a brief stay at Hospice of Miami County, after an extended illness.
Wife, Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma....a beautiful, strong woman who honored those titles with the utmost Joy, Pride, Passion, Time, Care and Love. She undoubtedly enjoyed watching all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren sports games. She was their biggest cheerleader. When not watching sports games, she also enjoyed being a loving wife to her devoted husband, playing lots of cards, gardening, providing leadership for Girl Scout troops, organizing and hosting Church social events and planning many family gatherings as she loved spending time with family and cooking them a big meal.
Today and always, we will remember her as the “Matriarch “ of our family and will be better people for having received the strong love that she displayed to us. She will be deeply missed by all of her family, immediate and extended, and those whose lives she made a connection with. We love you always and forever!
She is preceded in death by her biological father, Paul Hollopeter; mother & step-father, Lloyd & Sara Shurte, and brothers, Jim Statesman & Randy Shurte.
Teri is survived by her husband of 55 years, Dana Burns; children, Frances Jeanette (Jim) Owens, Daniel (Nicole) Burns, Kimberly (Steve) Werling; Kevin (Stephanie) Burns; grandchildren, David, Danielle, Laci, Devin, Dylan, Chase, Cody, Whitney; step-grandchildren, Ashton, Kearston, Peyton; great-grandchildren, Keyana, T.J., Kason, Sabin; sister, Paula Marshall, and numerous other relatives and friends.
