BROOKHAVEN — Memorial services for Princess Burns Robertson, 94, of Brookhaven, who died Tuesday, April 25, 2017, in Brookhaven, will be 11 a.m. Saturday at Riverwood Family Funeral Service.
A private burial will follow.
Visitation will be from 10:30 a.m. until service time Saturday at the funeral home.
Mrs. Robertson was born Feb. 7, 1923, in Monroe, La., the daughter of Alonzo Patrick Burns and Inez Sterling Burns Hutto.
Mrs. Burns was named before anyone knew who she would become. One definition of “princess” is a woman considered to have the qualities or characteristics of a princess. This is the most perfect definition for this precious lady. Her family was her passion. She was so much more than a wife, mother and grandmother. She was priceless to everyone who knew her and will be greatly missed.
She loved traveling, cooking, decorating and gardening. She also enjoyed entertaining friends and family, hosting parties for every occasion. She will be remembered by her laughter and her love for life. Singing was also a joy to her. She was a member of the choirs at First Baptist Church in Brookhaven and in Natchez. Heaven is sounding sweeter since she joined heaven’s choir.
Mrs. Robertson was preceded in death by her husband, John Benton “Happy” Robertson Jr., and her parents.
Survivors include two daughters, Pat Bullen and husband, Johnny, and Ann Martin and husband, Bob; two brothers, Fred Hutto and Gurney Hutto; one sister, Alice McDaniel; four grandchildren, John W. Bullen, Paul S. Martin, Summer M. Sellers and Robert B. Martin; and seven great-great-grandchildren.
