In memory of
Ruth Burnett
Ruth Burnett May 25, 1957 - January 20, 2021 Cary, North Carolina - On January 20th 2021, Ruth Anne Burnett passed away peacefully. In the face of extreme challenges, Ruth chose again and again, to show her best self. She was good, gracious, and loving to strangers, friends, and family. She was honest, trustworthy, and loyal. She laughed and smiled without hesitation and strived to, in her words, "Make each day a good day." Her value of gratitude guided her smiles and words to the incredible staff at Transitions LifeCare in Raleigh, NC, where she spent her final days. As a child, Ruth was cared for by her parents, Hugh and Betty Charlton, of Raleigh. As an adult, Ruth created her own family and cared for her husband, Robert Burnett, and her three children Paul Davis, Sarah Burnett, and Allison Burnett. She devoted her career to first teaching and then to being a therapist, focusing her efforts on helping children. She leaves behind close friends and family members, with whom she enjoyed reminiscing and talking for hours. When she cared for us, she taught us to care for ourselves and for each other. She was somebody who, by being herself, inspired us to be our best selves. We love her deeply and miss her dearly. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Best Friend Pet Adoptions at bfpa.org . Condolences can be made at cremationsocietync.com
