October 2021 Posted in Uncategorized

Phyllis Kay Burk, born Sept. 10, 1933 in Brooklyn New York, died Sept. 19, 2021 in Silverton, Oregon at the age of 88. She was preceded in death by her husband Oliver Wendell Burk and sons Terry and David. She is survived by son, Steven (Cindy) Burk of Silverton; son, Mark (Lisa) Burk of Silverton; daughter, Lorraine (Rick) Bergerson of Henderson, Nevada; daughter, Joanne (Stuart) Hartley of Silverton; son, Glenn (Joni) Burk of Beaverton, Oregon; along with 25 grandchildren and 48 great grandchildren.

Phyllis spent most of her early years in Southern California. After starting their family in California, the couple moved to the Drakes Crossing area in the Silverton Hills, where Wendell operated a small market and Phyllis worked for the state of Oregon.

Phyllis had many friends, from her church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, T.O.P.S., volunteering at Silverton Hospital and the Silverton Hills community. She loved serving people in whatever they needed. Her favorite thing was getting together with as many families and friends as possible, enjoying a great meal, laughter and story telling.

There was a small graveside service held with family on Oct. 1, with a celebration of life to be held at a later date.
