The Burton Center Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of “The Debbie Burton Society” to assist and provide opportunities in the areas of estate and gift planning strategies.
The Foundation chose September 29, 2018 as the date to establish this society in memory of Debbie on her birthday. Debbie Burton was born in 1952 to Doris and Felton Burton and was the inspiration behind the development of services for people with disabilities and special needs. Today, services are provided for over 1,200 people in six counties and employs over 400 staff members.
Optimistic, caring, deeply religious, knowledgeable of politics, happy, intelligent—all of these describe Debbie Burton. Debbie passed away on December 8, 2000 at the age of 48.
