Obituary

Theodora "Flucy" Burks was born July 4, 1940, to the late Frank and Viola Burks in York County, Virginia.  Her earthly journey concluded on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, in Riverside Regional Medical Center.

"Flucy", as she was affectionately called, loved the Lord and was an active member of Rising Sun Baptist Church.  She work as an independent childcare provider for many years.

She was funny, quiet, and a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.  Flucy loved going to Roses and Dollar Tree, shopping, and watching her soaps on TV.  She also loved being outdoors and talking to Glinlee on the telephone.  Her children were the great loves of her life and she loved them with her whole heart.  She enjoyed special bonding times with each one of them whether going for her dog rides or sitting around reminiscing about the old days. You always knew when she was tired of you visiting her because she would get quiet and give you the eye or a umpf; that was her way of letting everyone know it was time to go.  She was also a devoted and loving grandmother. Flucy loved her grandchildren and was proud of them.  She loved giving to them no matter how big or small.  She would always say "I want to give them what I wasn’t able to give my children when they were growing up".

Flucy was preceded in death by her brothers, Frank "Sonny" Burks, William "Nicky" Burks Sr., Harold Marvin, and Bobby Burks; sisters, Sally Ransome and Laura “Lavette” Burks; and great-grandson, Jasiah Temple.  

Flucy's memories will forever remain with her children, Clarence Burks, Ray Burks (Carol), Ronald Burks, Brett Burks (Aimee), and Dana Hatchett (Lorenzo); special son, William Burks Jr; ten grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren; sisters, Ophelia Burks, Shirley Gray, and Rochelle Burks; special friend, Glinner Lee Saunders; and a host of other relatives and friends.

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 3, 2021, at Whiting's Funeral Home.  Livestream will be available at the beginning of the service.  Ms. Burks may be viewed on Wednesday beginning at 12:00 p.m. until the hour of her service.
