Vivian Marilyn Deal Burnette, 91, passed away on the morning of Saturday, June 27, 2020.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Donald Burnette; parents, Charlie and Verna West Deal. Also preceded in death by her brothers, Braxton Deal and Samuel Deal; sister, Ethel Hurley, and nephew, Gene Hurley.
She is survived by her sons, David (Dave) Burnette (Jana) of Gloucester, Steven Burnette (Joice) of Mathews; grandchildren, Sarah Sweet (Michael) of Suffolk, Paul Burnette of Mathews, Leslie Blanks (David) of Mathews, Ryan Hogge (Allison) of St. Johns, Florida; five great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Delorese Robins of Richmond, and many lifelong neighbors and friends she loved dearly.
She was a lifelong resident of Gloucester, spending many years as a beautician at The Old Village Beauty Shop and Sanders Nursing Home. In her later years, she made hair cutting/beautician house calls. She never missed an opportunity to get her scissors and comb in a head of hair she felt needed her attention. She loved her church, her family, bowling, yard sales, playing cards, Bingo, canning, baking cakes, crabbing, and gardening. She was a lovely lady who rarely met a stranger. She will forever be missed and live on in our hearts and memories. God has gained another angel. Rest in peace, Mom.
