Burningham, Jean (nee Hughes)

June 13, 1928 - November 25, 2019

After a full and happy life, a golden heart has stopped. Jean was clear minded on death, torn between leaving her children and their families and joining the love of her life, Ron (2013). Wife of Ron Burningham for 64 years. Mother to Bradd Burningham and wife Gwendolyn Ebbett and their children Kerry Creelman and Jon Hansen and baby to be, and Kyle and Monica Creelman and their children Patricio and Luna; and to Debbie and her husband Rick Schuchard and their children Krystal Schuchard and Dan Szusz and their daughter Payton, and Kyle Schuchard. Survived by her sister Margaret Shillington, and a multitude of family and friends who love and miss her. At Jean's request, there will be no visitation or formal service. A memorial service will be held at a later date. If desired, memorial donations may be made in Jean's memory to The Downtown Mission by contacting Reid Funeral Home and Reception Centre, Essex (519-776-4233). As a tribute to Mom, please look for the good in life and people... and share a laugh, it's good for the soul. Family and friends may share their memories or make a donation online at
