Donna L. Burney, 83, passed away unexpectedly on August 15, 2020, in Pueblo, Colo. Born July 3, 1937, in Pueblo, to Kenneth and Maxine McTavish, who preceded her along with her beloved husband of 22 years, Bill J. Burney. Loving mother of sons, Keith (Peggy) Matic, Kevin Matic, Kenneth (Jennifer) Matic; and loving stepmother of Michael (Dana) Burney, Leslie Stuart, and Kelly Sporich.

Great grandmother, affectionately known as “GG”, of Gunner Litton and Scarlett Snyder. Dear sister of Sharon (Gary) Bryson and Jack (Pat) McTavish. Loved and adored by her nieces and nephews. Donna was a graduate of Central High School, class of 1955. She retired from Qual-Med after many dedicated years of service in the health insurance industry. Donna was a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary #145, and she loved volunteering at their annual Children’s Christmas Shopping Spree. She enjoyed tending to her beautiful flowers and yard, feeding her hummingbirds, travelling the coasts and Mexico with her husband, and enthusiastically cheering on her Denver Broncos every season. Most of all, she treasured her family and embraced every moment shared with them, especially on Christmas Eve.
