Rosalyn M Burmeister

May 13, 1924 ~ October 29, 2018 (age 94)

Rosalyn (Biron) Burmeister died peacefully at The Lutheran Home in Southbury, on October 29, 2018.

Lynn was the daughter of Joseph Biron and Albina (Mayer) Biron of Waterbury, Ct. She was raised on Thrushwood Place in Waterbury. She was a 1942 graduate of Wilby High School.

She married Theodore (Bud) Burmeister on August 17, 1946.

They moved to Woodbury in 1955 and raised their three children and numerous loved animals.

She was a Devout Catholic and a member of St. Teresa Parish in Woodbury. 

Lynn started Burmeister Realty in 1963. She loved the Real Estate Business. In 1980 she went to work at Park Manor Nursing Home in Waterbury as the Admissions Director. It was a job that meant the world to her. She made it her own. She retired in 1990 and devoted herself to her Grandson.

Lynn was responsible for creating the Christmas House Tours in Woodbury which benefited the Nonnewaug Scholarship Fund.

In 1960 Lynn became involved with the AFS (American Field Service) program and every summer she and Bud would welcome students from all over the world. The students would get a tour of New England from Sturbridge Village to Fort Ticonderoga. For years, after returning to their homes, the students would still write and call and several returned to visit with their own families.

Lynn loved the beach! Reading on the beach was her favorite thing to do. She and Bud loved the Cape and spending their summers there with their family and friends. Lynn was an amazing hostess. She lived for entertaining her extended family at summer barbecues.

She was known for a wonderful sense of humor and her compassionate heart. She was devoted to her family and friends and was loving of all the animals placed in her care.

Her home was beautiful, creating it was a great source of pride. Every year she planted her Tulips, washed and painted her wicker furniture and would spend the summer evenings on the side porch enjoying her yard.

She leaves behind her son, Richard (Linda) of Dennis Port, Ma and Southbury, her daughter, Betsy, of Martha’s Vineyard and her beloved Grandson Teddy (Lindsay) and her two Great Grandchildren, Benjamin and Madeline.

She was predeceased by her husband, Theodore and daughter, Karen.

Her family would like to thank her Caregivers at The Lutheran Home for their kindness and Compassion.
