Muncie – Betty Lou (Koons) Burris, 89, went to be with her Lord on Friday, November 2, 2018 at Golden Living Center, surrounded by her family.

Betty was born in California on Mother’s Day 1929, the daughter of Rosemund (Thompson) and Lester Koons. Miss. Burris lived in Cincinnati, Ohio until going to Moosehart in Joliet, Illinois when her father went to fight for his country in World War II. After graduating from Moosehart, she came to Muncie to live with her father and got a job at Woolworths. There she met the love of her life, Robert Burris. They married and had two children. She obtained her Master of Cosmetology license and opened her own salon so she could be a stay at home mother. She owned and operated Bobette’s and also ran the beauty shop at Westminster Village.

Mrs. Burris was a lifelong member of the Women of the Moose, Women of the Eastern Star, and also very active in the church she helped found, Unity Church in Anderson.

Mrs. Burris leaves behind two children, seven grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Burris; a grandson, Kevin Burris; and her parents.

Services will be 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at The Meeks Mortuary and Crematory, Mt. Pleasant Chapel, 7901 West Isanogel Road.

Family and friends may call from 11;00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday at the Mt. Pleasant mortuary.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to Moosehart Child City and School Inc., Moosehart, IL. 60539, a charity dear to Mrs. Burris’ heart.
