Katherine Louise Burton, 76, of Great Mills, MD, passed away on June 20, 2021 at home.
Born on April 19, 1945 in La Plata, MD, she was the daughter of the late James R. Pilkerton and Helen Pilkerton, Port Tobacco, MD.
Louise worked at Robert Hall Clothes in White Plains, MD for many years before becoming a stay-at-home grandmother caring for her grandson and other children of friends before retiring and spending the rest of her years with her best friend and soul mate, her husband Gary until his recent passing.
