Obituary

Mrs. Jacqueline Larette Burley, 76, of Youngstown, transitioned to her heavenly mansion on Sunday, May 9, 2021 at her home.

Mrs. Burley was born August 22, 1944 in Youngstown, a daughter of Hugh E. and Carrie Lee Wilkerson. She was a 1962 graduate of East High School and attended nursing school. She had been employed for a time with Delphi Packard Electric. Jackie was known for her outstanding work as Executive Director of Protestant Family Services for over 25 years, and had planned to retire at the end of 2021 to enjoy time with her family. Jackie was a member of Church at Warren, Church Women United, and Tri-City Chapter of Medical Assistance. Jackie was unique, and loved line dancing, so much so that she formed a group of women who met at her home for over 10 years called the “Burley Line Dancers”.

She leaves to mourn her passing, but to rejoice in her eternal peace, her son, Clarence L. (Cathy) Burley II; great niece whom she reared, Fantasia Lowe; her daughter-in-law, Azell Burley; a sister, Sybil A. West; brother, Ray H. Wilkerson; three grandchildren, Shantel “Shannie” Saunders of Atlanta, GA who was her caregiver, DeShawn Burley and Qynn Burley; three great grandchildren, DeShawn Burley, Jr., Deondre Burley and Aubrionna Burley; Goddaughter; Shari Smith-Mckinney of Youngstown, Stacey Richardson of Columbus; and a host of family and friends.

Greeting her at Heaven’s gate were her parents; her husband, Clarence L. Burley Sr.; her son, Wesley H. Burley; and her sister Mozelle Snead.

There will be a walk through on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. at the New Bethel Baptist Church, 1507 Hillman Street. Funeral services will follow at 11:00 a.m. Due to the pandemic, all guests are asked to please wear masks and observe social distancing. For the health and safety of everyone, please do not linger at the church after viewing.
