Mrs. Lieselotte Maria “Lee” Burns age 93, of Adrian, Georgia, died Monday, July 12, 2021, at Scott Health and Rehabilitation after an extended illness. She was born in Marburg, Germany on April 1, 1928. She survived the bombings of World War II as a young teenager. After losing her mother in a bombing raid, she learned how to survive alone in a war-torn Germany. She met her husband, Herbert Burns, when he was a young soldier stationed in Germany and they married in 1956. She became a citizen of the United States and was always so proud to be an American.
She was a quiet and private person; and her kindness was known by all who knew her. She was a devoted wife who loved caring for her husband and her home. She worked with her late husband at Wildwood Lake for many years. She is preceded in death by her parents, Wilhelm Fink and Luise Fink and her husband Herbert E. Burns
A graveside funeral will be held Wednesday, July 14th, at 3:30 p.m. at Pinecrest Cemetery in Vidalia with Pastor Efton Green officiating.
