Passing of Patsy Burton

All, it is with sincere regret that the Milton Fire Department Inc. informs you that Ladies Aux. member Patsy Burton passed away on 01/15/22 at home. Patsy has been a member of the auxiliary since 1976 and served as President and a few other offices over the years. Patsy had perfect attendance many times over the years and prided herself in always being there. We all know that she made our "sweet tea" (had to follow her recipe!!) famous and loved by everyone!! Patsy will never be forgotten - a true friend and leader for our organization. Please keep Ray and her extended family in your thoughts and prayers. Ray's address is 22054 Burton Road, Milton, DE 19968.
