Pleasantville Woman Pleads Guilty to Fatal Stabbing

Susan P Burton, of Oaklyn, Accomplished Musician, Pianist


Home is where your treasure is. There, your heart will be also. Susan P. Burton (nee Watkins) was in fact a “homebody”. She was welcoming, compassionate and would talk with ya, but was opinionated. She stuck to her guns in a lovable demeanor and was an animal lover at heart. Sue was, truly, a Obits 6thunderstorm wrapped in beauty, looking to be felt and understood in a world that loves sunny days. On Sunday January 19th, 2020 Sue’s soul was painted like the wings of butterflies. Fairytales of yesterday grow but never die. So, carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters.

Sue was born in Flushing, Queens, NY but was a lifelong Haddon Township/Oaklyn, NJ resident. Music speaks where words fail, so pray to music. Fill your heart with every note. ‘Cause God is in these clef and tone. She was an accomplished musician and pianist who held her faith dear. Sue was a longtime congregant of Grace Episcopal Church in Haddonfield. At home she loved to cook, cross stitch and passionately cheer on the “IGGLES”! We hoped you’d never leave old friend. Like all good things, on you we depend. To her loved ones, Sue will be fondly remembered as the best woman in the world.

Family is like music. Some high notes, some low notes but always a good song. We must remember the music of the past, so we can sing in the present and dance in the future.Sue is the mother of Bob Wells (Jackie Nagle) and Emily Wells. She is the proud grandmother of Ariana Nelson and daughter of Alton & the late Patricia Watkins. Sue is also survived and will be sadly missed by her first husband Rob Wells, her husband Joe Burton, her sister Ann Van Horn and her brother Bill (Lorie) Watkins.

Relatives, friends and neighbors are invited to join Sue’s family and share their heartfelt memories on Thursday morning January 30, 2020 between 10:00 and 11:00 am at Grace Episcopal Church 19 E. Kings Highway Haddonfield where a funeral ceremony will begin at 11:00 am. Pastor Jenny Ovenstone celebrating. Burial & graveside tribute will follow at Lakeview Memorial Park, Cinnaminson.
