It is with profound sadness we share the passing of Janice Marie Burke (Kolito) on April 8, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer.
The sun rose and the world welcomed Jan on August 15th, 1946, a day the world became a little brighter. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Jan lived a full and warm life, filled with joy. She will be fondly remembered and sorely missed. She was a woman full of grace and kindness and anyone that knew her was lucky enough to experience her gentle soul. Jan had a laugh and smile that lit up a room. She was a loving and devoted wife, Aunt and friend to those lucky enough to call her one of these.
Jan is survived by her husband and best friend of 52 years, Joe. She married the love of her life on February 1st, 1969. She will be greatly missed.
She is also survived by her brother Gregory Kolito, brothers in law Jeff Burke & Kelly Burke, nieces and nephews Sean, Cathy and Matt Beissel, Ed and Jolene Burke, Kiera Burke and Mary Burke.
Jan was predeceased by her parents, Ernest and Mildred Kolito. As well as her beloved sisters in law, Sheila Beissel and Delores Burke.
