Kathleen Ann Burkley
Kathleen Ann Burkley, 75 of Grayling passed away peacefully November 21, 2018.
Survived by husband, Donald D. Burkley of Grayling; children, Michael Burkley of Grayling and Andrew (Tricia) Burkley of Ada; and grandchildren Zoe and Aidan.
Kathy grew up in Three Rivers, Michigan living on Corey Lake where she developed her life long passion for outdoor activities, including fishing, boating, hunting and gathering.
She graduated from Three Rivers High School and then from Michigan State University before going on to the University of Iowa, where she obtained a masters degree in nutritional science.
While completing her masters work, she met and married Don, her husband of 51 years.
In 1969 Kathy and Don moved to Grayling, where she worked for many years as a Registered dietitian in private practice and for our District Health Department as a nutrition consultant for the WIC program.
In the past Kathy was active in the Michigan Dietetic Association and was also on the Crawford AuSable School board where she served as board president for several years.
Following retirement, Kathy and Don frequently traveled to visit family and friends and often to fish.
Kathleen’s family has chosen to remember her privately at this time, with plans for a Celebration of her Life for family and friends at a future time.
