Lucy Violet Burch was reunited in heaven with her mother, Agnes Chraston; her son, Wally; and grandson Jimmy “Ray Ray” on March 28, 2024, after a brief illness.

Born on February 19, 1952, she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and cooking for everyone. She was an avid collector of pigs and was well known for having many different pets.

In her spare time she enjoyed bird watching, reading, crocheting, going to garage sales, and going to Niagara Falls.

Lucy was a foster parent in Orleans County for over 40 years and will be remembered for her boundless sense of humor and ability to help others.
