Obituary of Linda Ann Sutton Burns

Linda Ann (Sutton) Burns, age 74, of Danbury passed away peacefully on Saturday July 22, 2023. She was the widow of Michael James Burns, Jr. the love of her life.

Linda graced this world with her presence on October 31, 1948 in Bridgeport, CT. She is the daughter of the late James Laurance Sutton, ‘Larry’ to friends, ‘Granddaddy’ to family, and Hazel Lucille (Henry) Sutton.

She made a difference in many students lives and built some of her greatest friendships with her coworkers. Linda was a member of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Brookfield where she served as a council member. She was an avid reader and a crossword wiz.
