Obituary for Peggy Jean Overholt Burns
Peggy Overholt Burns was born on August 25, 1928 in Topeka, Kansas, youngest of four children of Rex and Alma Taylor Overholt. She passed away in Vacaville, California, on January 22, 2020. She was preceded in death by her
parents as well as her dear husband of over 48 years, Parker B. Burns, Jr., on June 17, 2005 and her beloved daughter, Elizabeth Jean Burns Kearney-Baker on February 19, 2008.

She is survived by her son, John Parker Burns, her five grandchildren: D.

Peggy and Parker moved to Vacaville, California from Denver, Colorado in 1958 as Parker had accepted an instrumental music teaching position with the Vacaville Unified School District. Peggy worked as a secretary at Travis AFB and later at the district office of the school district. She spent several years at home, when her children were young before returning to work for the local school district as an elementary school teacher at Edwin
Markham School. She retired in 1991 after 18 years of teaching.

Peggy was an active member of Bethany Lutheran Church from August, 1958 until the present time and enjoyed her work as a volunteer in various capacities, usually focusing on children's activities.

Peggy's interests in addition to volunteer work at the church and other organizations included spending time with her family, traveling with Parker on sight-seeing and golf trips, reading, as well as being a part of Parker's interests in music. She was a member of Bethany Niners and previously of the Vaca Valley Women's Golf Club, Twice Arounders, and Paradise Valley Golf Club.
