After a brief illness, Jane Auman Burton went home to her Heavenly Father during the early hours of March 19th.
She had lived a full active life. Throughout her life, she was heavily involved in the ministries of Christ Central Church. She loved music and signing in the church choir.
She was very involved in her children's and grandchildren's lives. She was active in the parent student organizations while her children were in school and was involved in the creation of the school library at Eura Brown School and for 16 years with the Gadsden High School Band boasters.
She was a 25 year volunteer with the Red Cross. She taught hand sewing and crochet around the community for several years.
She and her husband John were active members of the Dixie Hi-Lo Camping Club and after his retirement enjoyed many camping trips with the club and by themselves.
She was preceded in death by her parents Hank and Margaret Auman.
She is survived by her husband of 64 years, John R. Burton Jr. Children David (Louann) Burton, Laura (Rick) Brothers, Bruce (Nancy) Burton, Robert (Melanie) Burton , grandchildren Steve (Tiffany) Nelson, Wilson Abel, Amy Brothers, John (Anna) Nelson, Dirk Burton, Christopher (Jessica) Burton, Lauren (Jake) Pollard, Amy Burton, Robin (Matt) Ankerich, Kane Burton, Shelby (Trey) English, Brittney Burton and Rachel Burton and seven great grandchildren whom she dearly loved.
The family would like to thank the staff at Gadsden Regional Hospital for the care they provided during her stay, to 'her special sister' Jeannie White who sat with her during her illness and to the staff of McGuffeys Healthcare during her final days.
The family will receive friends at Collier-Butler Funeral Home Wednesday evening from 6 to 8 pm.
She will lie in state from 12 noon until the 1pm service at Christ Central Church 409 West Grand Avenue, Rainbow City with graveside services and internment at Rainbow Gardens Memorial. Rev. Sherri Reynolds will officiate. The pallbearers will be her grandsons.
