Patricia Burner

Patricia Trail Burner, 83, of Lakeland, Fla., died Saturday (Feb. 15, 2014) from complications following a stroke.

Born Aug. 3, 1930, in Idamay, Patricia attended schools near her hometown and Clarksburg, Lumberport and Fairmont. She graduated from Fairmont Senior High School in 1948.

Patricia and Jean Burner were married Feb. 12, 1948, in Fairmont, while she was a senior in high school. She was in the Beauty Queen Court that year and was a cheerleader and band majorette at Lumberport the previous year.

Patricia, Jean and their first two daughters moved from Fairmont to Florida in 1953, living in several cities in Florida before coming to Lakeland in 1996. Patricia will forever be remembered as the mom, grandmommy and great-grandmommy who always had time for her children, grandchildren and great-grands.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Hilda (Crislip) Rizzo; father, Charles Trail; and stepfather, Anthony “Tony” Rizzo.

Remaining to cherish her memory are her husband of 66 years, Jean Burner of Lakeland; their three daughters, Jean Ann Halloway (Gary) of Rockledge, Fla., Teri Mantia (Bill) of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Kelley Caruso (Todd) of Reynoldsburg, Ohio; four grandchildren, Hillary Brewster (Mike) of Tampa, Fla., Jessica Whitlock of Rockledge, Fla., and Nicolas Caruso and Carmen Caruso of Reynoldsburg, Ohio; five great-grandchildren; sister, Phillis Malcolm of Harker Heights, Texas, formerly of Fairmont; and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

She will be missed by all who knew her.

Special thanks is extended to the doctors and nurses in the LRMC Palliative Care Unit and Cornerstone Hospice, who made her last days more comfortable.

At Patricia’s request, her body was cremated, and there will be no services.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
