Antoinette J. Burke, 90, of Marlborough

Obit Antoinette BurkeMarlborough – Antoinette J. (Ryan) Burke, 90 of Marlborough, died Thursday, April 3, 2014 at Wingate at Sudbury. Born in Lawrence, she was the daughter of the late John F. and Josephine N. (Linehan) Ryan and the wife of the late William A. Burke.

Mrs. Burke was forever adventurous. She loved dancing and singing and always had an open door for those in need. She never thought it necessary to follow the crowd in spirit or fashion- and taught her children to fight for themselves and others when needed.

Her faults and imperfections have carried her family through the hard times and have made them better people. They couldn’t ask for more. She will live on in her children and their families, leaving them a legacy that they are proud to claim.

She is survived by her sons, Thomas F. Burke of Framingham and William C. Burke and his wife Kathleen of Marlborough; her daughters, Mary J. Smith, wife of the late Ron Smith, of Marlborough, Julie A. Kelley of Big Lake, Alaska, and Antoinette M. Cameron and her husband Bruce of Sterling; 16 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Visiting hours will be held Monday, April 7, from 4 – 8 p.m., at the Slattery Funeral Home, Inc., 40 Pleasant St., Marlborough. A funeral mass will be celebrated Tuesday, April 8, at 10 a.m., at the Immaculate Conception Church, 11 Prospect St., Marlborough.
Burial will follow at St. Mary’s-Immaculate Conception Cemetery, 29 Barker St., Lawrence.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Beacon Hospice, 160 Speen St., Suite 205, Framingham, MA 01701.
