Obituary of Elizabeth D. Burns
Elizabeth’s most enduring quality was that she loved her husband. She would defend him above all else and often did so. She also loved music and knew the words to every classic rock song that made the Billboard charts. She was an animal lover and would do nothing to hurt an animal but would get angry when she heard of others doing so.
Even though she lost her vision over thirty years ago, she did not consider that a handicap. Through the years she had hiked, explored caves, fished, made quilts and won many awards doing so, used a sewing machine, kept house, gardened, cooked and become a ham radio operator. She was active in the Washington County Piecemakers Quilt Guild and the Highland Homemakers, both in Salem, Indiana. After moving to Tennessee, she and her husband enjoyed hiking to mountain tops to make worldwide
contacts with their ham radio.
Through her quilting hobby she was invited to be a keynote speaker for many churches, quilt guilds, and other groups throughout several states. She was an excellent speaker and had the ability to arouse deep emotions in her audiences as her talks were both heartbreaking and inspirational.
