Obituary for Dorothy Jean Burke (Winzenread)

Dorothy Jean  Burke (Winzenread)
Obituary written and submitted by family

Dorothy Jean (Winzenread) Burke, born on January 17, 1923 in Indianapolis, Indiana, to Russell and
Mabel Winzenread, passed away peacefully on January 4, 2019, at her home in Hemet, CA, surrounded
by her family. Dottie, as she was called, moved to California at age 20, where she would raise her family
and remain for the rest of her life. Favorites among her many activities were teaching typing at Rio
Hondo Junior College in Whittier, CA, where she also earned her AA degree, and working in the Business
License Department of Pico Rivera City Hall for many years. Dottie was an avid football fan, always
rooting for the UCLA Bruins. She was an enthusiastic poker player, and enjoyed trips to the local
casinos, where she was almost always a winner. Dottie is preceded in death by loving husbands Elmer
Molique and William Russell Burke, and long- time partner, Dick Hawes. She is survived by her children:
Julie Davis (Dave) of Pittsburgh, PA; Linda Cato (Don) of Hemet, CA; Nancy Burke of MountLake Terrace,
WA; John Burke (Abby) of Granite Bay, CA, honorary child Dennis Hawes (Irene), as well as 8 grand
children, 10 great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins. Dottie will long be remembered by all
who knew and loved her for her constant smile, loving and generous spirit, and her love of life. A
memorial ceremony will be held at the Riverside National Cemetery on January 24, 2019 at 1:00pm. A
Celebration of Life will follow at the clubhouse at the Four Seasons community in Hemet, where Linda
and Don reside. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Salvation Army, Dottie’s favorite,
or a charity of your choice.
