Obituary Notices and Memorials


BURROWS, Carol Marie aka 'Nama', died peacefully in her home in Rosamond, Calif., on Jan. 5, 2016 at the age of 71. Carol was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Gary Burrows, son Robert Burrows (Denise), father Edward White, Sr. (Doris), mother Mary White and brother, Edward White, Jr. (Jana). Carol will be greatly missed by her daughter, Angela Hammons of Rosamond, granddaughters Sara Hammons and Emily Hammons of Rosamond, grandson Vincent Burrows of Cordell, Okla. and a host of extended family and friends. Carol was born in Pocatello, Idaho on Mar. 11, 1944. She graduated from Downey High School, Calif., in 1962, studied art at Cerritos Community College and went on to hold positions as an instructional aide for special education students and as an executive secretary. A soft-spoken , cheerful, lover of life, Carol enjoyed camping, playing volleyball, playing polkas on her accordion and crocheting. Her generous heart will be remembered, both by the recipients of the countless colorful afghans she gave as gifts and donated to those less fortunate in her community, and by friends who enjoyed her hospitality whey they found themselves in need of a place to stay. Carols greatest joy was spending time with her family, which she treasured beyond words. In her later years she enjoyed going for Sunday drives with her daughter and spoiling her two Pomeranians. Carols family is grateful to ProCare Hospice for their compassionate care and support. 'But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint'-Isa.40:31
