Obituary for Mary Frances "Tiny" Burleson

Mary Frances "Tiny" Burleson
Mary Frances “Tiny” Burleson, treasured mother, grandmother and friend, passed away on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 in Corsicana, Texas after a long and very blessed life. Born on the 3rd of April 1920, the seventh of eight children, to Jim and Mary Michaels, Tiny was 97 at the time of her passing.
She grew up in a farming community where they met and she and Nuel married on May 22, 1936. At the time of his passing they were married for sixty-four years.
Tiny and Nuel worked together and made a comfortable living farming in the Waxahachie, TX area and running a trucking business. Everyone that stopped by their home got to experience her “country cooking” and never left hungry. And as her grandchildren will attest – discussions at the dinner table included her sage views as the “world according to Tiny”.
She also enjoyed talking on the phone for hours, keeping up with her son, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, family and friends. Her love of music took her every week to “seniors” where for several hours a band would play old country music of their era.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Nuel and siblings: Rastus, Albert, Eula Mae Reed, Marvin, Ivy Lee, Kathie Featherston and Enola Thompson.
She is survived by her son Ronnie Burleson and his wife Judi of League City, Tx. She was “Me-Maw” to her grandchildren Alicia Holtzhausen and husband Xavier of Frisco, TX, Garrett Burleson and wife Kim of Houston, Tx and Ronni Abernathy of Houston, Tx. She is also survived by great-grandchildren Taylor and Sophie Heyen, Marlee and Preslee Abernathy, William, Matthew and David Burleson and Andre Hotlzhausen. Murdell Tucker and Bonnie McNeely were the daughters she never had; her brother’s daughters came to live with them for a time, as she and Nuel gave them care, encouragement and love.
Visitation will be at 10:00 am on Saturday, December 9th at Corley Funeral Home 418 North 13th St., Corsicana, Texas. Her funeral service will be conducted at 11:00 am at the funeral home with Dr. Michael G. Tucker and Pastor Steve Burleson officiating. Burial will follow at Hamilton-Beeman Cemetery in Retreat, Texas.
Immediately following the service, friends and family are invited to join us in celebrating Tiny’s life.
In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests with gratitude that memorial contributions in Tiny’s name be directed to your charity of choice.
