My Dear step mother who was full of joyous smile, and a joy to be around, you leave a void to all your love ones but you are now in a place of no pain.
My thoughts are with my dear sister and all the family

My beautiful bold and fearless aunt,

My many memories of you will keep you close always. I still have that Tell Me Why book you sent for Chris and I to share, and while it does not answer that eternal question of death and the beyond, it does answer without a doubt, any question about your love for us. May the answer to the first question be one that finds you resting in eternal peace. 🖤🖤🤍🤍

Love always
Paula-Anne

Hello aunty Cindy. I have so many memories I could write a book. I remember growing up you were never out of the my life. Weekends with aunty Cindy. You fed me, wash me, clothe me, nurture me and Scolded me. Lard the scoldings. You expected and wanted nothing but the best for me, didn't know at the time and we all know our thoughts at the those young ages moaning mini, that's what I thought. aunty Cindy all I will say is Mackerel and Banana and beaten, say no more or sprain ankle. On Sunday a letter you wrote fell out 30yrs old, made me cry. Well good by Burke Matriarch until we meet again. May the almighty bless and keep you, love you always your neice Carol Burke.😘🙏xx

To, The Burke family

Every time I saw Miss Cindy on her many trips to London she was funny, kind, witty and full of good advice.

My lasting memory was on her wedding day when she demonstrated how to do a high kick. We were all amazed and in awe at how she kicked over our heads!

My deepest condolences to you all.

May she rest in eternal peace
