OBITUARY - DONNA LOUISE (BURCHETT) MAIN

Donna Louise MAIN, daughter of Charles and Nellie (RICHARDSON) BURCHETT, was born in Ringgold county, Riley township, Iowa, June 9, 1917 and died April 1, 2000 at Belton, Missouri at age 82.

She attended Riley Center country school and graduated from Lamoni high school in 1935. She taught in country schools for five years.

Louise was united in marriage to Franklin MAIN on March 21, 1937, and they recently celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary. Their home was blessed by a daughter, Nancy, and son, Stewart. They engaged in farming in Ringgold and Decatur counties. In 1974 they moved to Lamoni for 13 years and to Creston in 1986. In May, 1997 Louise and Franklin relocated to Raymore, Missouri to be close to their children.

Louise was a devoted wife and mother caring deeply for her family and friends. Her home was her haven that she willingly shared with others. She also enjoyed teaching children's Sunday school classes for many years. She served six years on the Lamoni Community school board and several years as the dietetic service supervisor at the Lamoni nursing home. Louise was a member of the United Methodist Church in Creston.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Charles and Nellie BURCHETT; her cherished sister Lorene SUMPTON; and brother-in-law Harold SUMPTON.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband Franklin; daughter Nancy HUGHES and husband Lee of Overland Park, Kansas; son Stewart of Lee's Summit, Missouri; niece Myrna ALDRICH and husband Steve; two nephews, Jeffery and David and wife Angela and daughter Emma of Minneapolis, Minnesota and other relatives and friends.
