    • Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, Mildred Jones Burton, age 76, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family June 29, 2002. She passed away at dawn on a beautiful summer morning after fighting a battle with liver cancer for the past 20 months.
      Mildred was born Sept 1, 1925 to George Victor Jones and Susan Alberta Blackett in Salt Lake City, UT. In 1933, she moved to Nephi, UT with her family. She graduated from Juab High School in 1943. She attended Utah State University graduating with a degree in Elementary Education. She was involved in 4H, Lambda Delta Sigma and the Education Club, acting as secretary of that organization. Her teaching career began in Nephi, UT. She taught school in Corrine, UT, El Paso, TX, Helper, UT, and at Roosevelt and Rosecrest Elementary where she retired after more than thirty years of teaching first grade. Over a thousand little five and six-year-olds had the privilege of being taught by Mrs. Burton. Her love for good books and reading attributed to her excellent ability in teaching children to read. After her retirement in 1987, she tutored children in her home. She returned to Rosecrest Elementary in 1999 and worked as a reading specialist with some of the students there. She has been a member of Alpha Delta Kappa Sorority for many years.
      Mildred married Lee Clark Burton in Nephi, UT June 11, 1949. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple Jan 11, 1965. They enjoyed almost fifty years of marriage until the passing of Lee June 2, 1999, just a few days before their Golden Wedding Anniversary. She nursed him with love and care during his yearlong battle with cancer and was diagnosed with liver cancer a year after his passing. What a wonderful example of strength and courage she has shown throughout her life and especially the past four years. Lee and Mildred are the parents of three children, Steve, Lynn and Kathy.
      Mildred loved her children and grandchildren dearly. She made holidays and birthdays extra special for everyone. If there was an occasion to celebrate, she was planning a party. She loved sewing, quilting, cooking, gardening, reading and traveling. She loved to spend the summer months at the cabin in Midway, UT entertaining family and friends. Everything Mildred did was accomplished with perfection.
      Mildred is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She has served faithfully throughout her life in many church callings. She particularly loved serving in the Young Women and Relief Society organizations.
