Memorial Gifts & Donations

Bobbie Jo Satterfield Burns, 87, of Leland, was surrounded by the love of her family when she peacefully passed away on Friday, February 23, 2024. She was born August 4, 1936 in Gray Court, South Carolina to Butler Emma Dials Satterfield and Tweetie Mae Ridgeway Satterfield, who preceded her in death. She was the loving wife, of 64 years, to Luther Earle Burns, who preceded her in death in November 2023.

Bobbie and Luke were blessed with a loving family of four children, son Greg (Denise) Burns, daughter Karen (Ronnie) Mintz, son David (Kim) Burns, and daughter Kathy Burns. Bobbie showed her great love for her grandchildren; Tiffany (Ron) Beach, Paige Carr, Justin Mintz, Chris (Jessica) Burns, Josh Burns, Sarah (Matt Kerns) Mintz, late grandson in-law Chris Heath and great-grandchildren; Hailey Garret, Wade Burns, Jake Burns, Hannah Burns; and step great-grandchildren Eric and Sofia Beach.

Bobbie was a homemaker, raising and caring for four children, who grew up to carry on her lessons. She was loved and respected by many family and friends. She enjoyed sharing stories, caring for her family, and making sure she knew the answers to all her questions. Bobbie was a grandmother to all, she raised and tended to many family friends’ children, not without thought of them being one of her own. She enjoyed capturing all moments with photos over the years, telling us all how much she loved us, and ensuring everyone was safe and happy.

Bobbie will be remembered for the love and protection she showed her family and friends. She taught the ones around her to be strong and always trust in the Lord. We will carry these life lessons with us always, as we remember her sweet words and generosity. As she would tell us all before bed, sweet dreams and God bless.
