Betty Burns Obituary

Betty Ann Burns, of Sun City West, AZ, passed away peacefully on February 29, 2024, at the age of 81, with her loving husband of 62 years, Ken Burns, by her side.

Betty was born on May 23, 1942, in Rugby, North Dakota, to Arthur and Mary Schmutzler.  She spent her early years in Rugby and in 1957 moved to Washington state, where she met and married the love of her life, Kenneth (Ken) Burns. Together, they raised three children: Michael, Christine, and Jeffrey. Betty and Ken retired to Arizona, spending their golden years traveling and cherishing their time together.

Betty will be deeply missed by her husband, Ken; her children, Michael (Mary) Burns, Christine (Jim) Russo, and Jeffrey Burns; her grandchildren, Spencer, Emily, Kylie, and Bode; her brothers, Robert Schmutzler and Vern Schmutzler, as well as many other family members and friends.

Betty was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandma.  She will always be remembered for her kindness, love and dedication to her family, and the joy she brought to all who knew her. May she rest in peace.

A Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday, June 15, 2024, at 4:00 PM at The Surprise Valley Farmhouse, located at 5240 S Surprise Way, Boise, ID 83716.
