In 1992, she and her husband moved to her daughter’s home in Port Republic. In 1995, the entire Burkman-Dove family moved into their new home in Lusby where she lived until her passing.
She is survived by her husband, George (Jack) Dove, her daughter Jeanine Burkman, her grandchildren, Patrick Burkman and his wife Joanna, her granddaughter Lisa Burkman Solier and her husband James; and last but not least her first great grandchild, Jay William Solier, who turned 4 months old the day after Nana went to be with the angels.
