Burke, Jr.

Betty was a 1939 graduate of Wiley High School. She was active in her bridge club, St. Patrick’s Mother’s Club (Treasurer) and the Elks in Terre Haute before the family moved to Lafayette, Indiana, in 1962. In Lafayette, she was active in the Central Catholic Mother’s Club. After raising her children, upon request, she worked a few years in scheduling at Purdue University. Upon her return to Terre Haute in 1978 after Owen’s retirement, she was a member of Sycamore Country Club and volunteered with the St. Patrick’s Soup Kitchen. She maintained contact with friends in Lafayette and enjoyed her “Lafayette Lunch Bunch.”

The family expresses appreciation to Hospice of the Wabash Valley, Father Rick Ginther, Eucharistic Minister Betty Kapellusch, special neighbor and friend Tracy Thomas, Dr. Kuduru, and all others who have cared and prayed for Mrs. Effner.
