Connie Lynn Burgess – Age 69, passed away September 23, 2019 in Nashville, TN.
Mrs. Burgess is survived by her loving husband, Donald Ray Burgess; daughter, Mary Burgess (Mike Morgan), grandchildren, Hannah Burgess (Shawn Yeager), Michael Buchanan, Christopher Lennier, Ryder Burgess, Brayden Turner, and Baylee Turner.
Mrs. Burgess enjoyed long walks and feeding the ducks at Centennial Park with her family and especially her grandchildren.
Connie loved all children but especially those that she cared for on a regular basis. Especially those that seemed to need a little extra love. She has been known to keep those babies for days at a time when needed and she became "Granny" to many over the years. And just last month, she officially became Granny to Ryder. She said this summer when she was in the hospital for a brief stint, that she was going to hold out until she knew ALL of her babies were going to be safe and in their forever homes...and by "babies", she meant Ryder, Baylee and Brayden. They were all "officially safe" as of a few weeks ago when their adoptions were aprroved. I guess she decided it was finally ok for her to go now.
She was equally proud of her older grandchildren, Michael, Hannah and Christopher
And granny was excited about being a great grandmother for the 1st time to baby Yager
