Louise June Pene Burr

Wednesday afternoon, while the sun shone it’s warmest, our mother was reunited with her sweetheart, Robert Charles Burr.

Louise was born in Rockvale, Colorado and grew up in Grand County, UT. She loved the whole Moab area. She loved how even in the winter the sky would stay such a bright blue and she could always feel the sun shining on her face.

Our parents met at a dance when our dad walked in wearing a leather jacket and asked her to dance. Hours before her high school graduation they were married in Bob’s mother’s front room. Their love could move mountains.

Bob and Louise had their children, Christie and Bob Jr., while living in Moab. After moving to Orem Shelle joined the little family. Mom loved being a mother and many of the neighborhood kids through the years could tell you they felt the motherly love from her while around her.
Mom felt blessed watching her children have children and will forever be the "World’s Best Grandma."

Her home was the hub for cousin sleepovers, weary travelers and friends of the family stopping for some lunch or just a safe haven with an always open door. She created a home that was always smelling of delicious goodies, a place where you could be yourself or even the X on a treasure map.

Apart from marrying our dad our mom’s next best decision was to join the Church. Over the years she held many callings but the unofficial acts of service are what everyone mentions they remember most. She was always aware of the needs of her fellow ward members and neighbors. “Because I have been given much I too shall give,” was a simple phrase she quietly lived by.

The gospel is in her. The decisions she’s made throughout her life were engrained deeply within her heart and soul. You could feel her testimony and love for her savior anytime you got near her. She often gave meaningful cards and letters to people with a gift or a goodie but it was never just a simple card, for you always got a sweet message about how great you are as a person and a bit of her testimony.

Our mom has been reunited with our father, Robert Charles Burr, the love of her life. Their reunion is what gives us the strength to keep going during what has been the greatest loss of our lives. Our mom is also with her babies that never survived here on earth, with her many animals she loved so immensely as well as her Dad, Mom, brother and beloved granddaughter Tiffany. She is survived by her 3 children, Christie Ann Fackrell (Brent), Robert Charles Burr Jr. (Joyce), Shelle Louise Lindsay (Jeff), her 12 grandchildren, and her 25 great grandchildren.

Graveside service to be held Monday December 7, 2020 at the Orem City Cemetery, 1520 N 800 E Orem, UT at 1:00 PM. A private family viewing prior to service Monday December 7, 2020, 11:30-12:30 at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 E 800 N Orem, UT.

Dear Family,
Louise was such a good example to me. She was Relief Society President when we first came back to Orem after renting our home and living in Mesa for 2 1/2 years. We had notified someone that we were returning to Orem and many were ready to help us move back in. Louise made sure we had a dinner that first night. And then as they say the rest is history. She was always serving. When I was RS president years later Louise was the Visiting Teacher supervisor. I was taught that now RS Pressidents we supposed to be over Visiting Teaching. It was hard to release Louise and harder to do the job that she had done so well for several years. The last couple of years I visited Louise every so often. I enjoyed our visits. She was always asking how my family was and I knew she really cared. We will miss her. It was a privilege to be asked to have Ward Choir members sing at the Graveside service. We were blessed to hear some special stories of her life. May you all find the comfort and peace the Lord gives in the coming days.
Love, Jennilyn and Keith Mauerman

When I became Bishop of the Orem 31st Ward in 1981 I felt overwhelmed. Louise was the Ward Relief Society President. In the early days of my service I often didn't know what to do but Louise knew how to do everything regarding assistance to those in need and crisis intervention. I relied on her judgment and energy enormously and she never let me down. I will always be grateful to her. In later years she was a friend and neighbor. I have complete faith the she and Bob are now reunited in full health and I'm happy for her even though will miss her.

Shellie! Sorry you’ve lost both of your folks now. Your mom was a dear friend and a wonderful person. I’m grateful I got well-acquainted with her and loved her. We had a lot of fun in Relief Society presidency back in the 70s!

I’m so grateful that Louise gave my sister Shelle a wonderful home and family. She welcomed my mom into the family when Shelle was reunited us. I wish I had been able to meet her too.

Grateful, in a way, that Louise is now at rest and reunited with Bob and all the others on the other side. She certainly did everything on this side of the veil to make anyone who knew her miss the influence for good that she was here. When you knocked on her door and opened it, there was always a robust "Come on in!" from her (Even when I didn't identify myself first). She made every church calling one where she remembered, served, and uplifted others. Bless you Louise, and may all your descendants teach the next generations about that woman in the pictures with the ever-present smile. Love to you all from Terry & Karen Olson.
