A true lady, and faithful servant of the Lord. I saw her weekly at mass where she always had a kind word to say. What a lovely life and tribute she has left for her family. May she rest in peace. I will miss her. Paula Tootle

Dear Sherry, Linn, and families, I am so sorry to hear the news about Betty. The first thing that came to mind when I thought about her was all the good times, laughter, and devoted friendships that your parents, my parents, the Remlers, the Davis’, and the Barton’s all had together for years! That was a special group of friends! My prayer is that your many wonderful memories will comfort and sustain you now and forever. Sending love and prayers for all of you.

Linn, Marce, Sherry, Harry and all her grand and great grandchildren, I will sure miss talking with her before 5:00 mass on Saturdays and not seeing her in her usual spot. She would always update me on all of you and you knew how much she LOVED her family! She was a beautiful soul and will be missed by many, but I am happy she is reunited with her dear husband that she lost at such a young age. Rest in peace, Mrs. Burnsed.

- Judy Crawford, Savannah, GA

Linn and Sherri, it has been a lot of years since seeing you, but I had reconnected with your beautiful mom at Saturday Mass at St James a while back upon my move back to Savannah. We spoke briefly catching up on the ‘Olden’ days of our families playing half rubber and getting together way back when! She is such a lovely and sweet lady and will be truly missed! Condolences from the entire Orvin family for your loss! Judy Orvin and my mom, Marie Orvin

- Orvin, Savannah , Georgia

Dear Linn and family, Tommy and I were sorry to learn of your mother’s death. I can still picture her at many sporting events and walking very determinedly around the track at the Memorial Hospital gym before 7:00 am many mornings. She was a special lady. May she rest in peace.
