?Caron Terese Burgess
December 17, 1949 – August 3, 2015
God the Father suddenly called His daughter. Suffering a massive stroke, she left us on August 3 2015.
She was born December 17, 1949 in Albuquerque New Mexico to Albert A. and Beatrice S. Nucci. In the early 50’s the family moved to Southern California eventually settling in Whittier. She attended Mulberry elementary; Hillview intermediate high, graduated from California High School in 1968, and then became a cheerleader graduating from Rio Hondo College in 1970.
She is survived by her husband Paul, mother Beatrice
Nucci Stites, her sister Tiya-B Nucci, and brother Allan Nucci.
She leaves two sons and their families. Her firstborn Gerad and his wife Michelle gave Caron twin grandchildren Dillon and Delaney. David with his wife Linda blessed her with two more grandsons, Tyler and Cameron. And let us not forget her beloved Chihuahua Clue.
Her skills benefited many as she labored lifelong for the dreams of others. She loved to volunteer yet her time in each endeavor was determined by the Lord,
Caron’s longest community commitment was 14 years with the Sequim lavender festival serving as ambassador in her last years.
Everyone blessed with knowing Caron will acknowledge that her life cannot be summed up with facts, places and dates but appreciated that her life was lived serving others. She selflessly gave herself to friends, family and neighbors by doing every kind of task she could accomplish. She often sat down and prayed with someone worried about an unsolvable problem, listened to those in need of a friend’s ear, baked birthday (or other occasion) cakes/deserts, and made meals for those whose lives were made busy with medical or social challenges. Caron was often busy, washing dishes, babysitting, driving those with transportation needs, cooking, cleaning, organizing, and other tasks at homes or offices and never mentioned pay or reciprocal remuneration. When asked to do a favor she often replied, “of course I always have time for you.”
Caron’s memorial service will be held at the Sequim Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 30 Sanford Lane at 3:00 p.m. August 12, 2015.
