Nannie Mae Burke

She was born in Saltville, Va., to the late Robert and Rosa Mae Crusenberry. In addition to her parents she was also preceded in death by her husband, Joe W. “ Buddy” Burke, Sr. and three brothers, Roy, Herman and Harold Crusenberry.

Nannie was retired from Washington County/Virginia National Bank where she worked over 25 years in the bookkeeping department. Following retirement, she began working alongside her late husband and their son at the family business Burke Print Shop a job she loved for over 20 years. Nannie was a genuine person and this always showed through her caring and giving personality. Her weekly trips shopping for clothes with her two sisters and a good meal were a highlight she always enjoyed.

She was a member of Abingdon Bible Church.
