Obituary: Wanda Burns


Wanda Burns

December 6, 1931 – April 16, 2022


Wanda graduated and finished the race to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 16, 2022. She dedicated herself to living her life for Christ and was loved by all who knew her. She is greatly missed and in our hearts forever. She is now in the arms of Jesus.

Wanda was a beautiful lady inside and out with elegance and class. She had a full life ministering to others and making arts and crafts. She was a talented artist, pianist, singer, and cook, and always gracefully giving of herself to others.

She was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and grew up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She came to live in Bellingham, where she later met the love of her life James Burns, of Lynden, who was a veteran of WWII. They soon married in 1986 and were married 30 years. Preceding her in death, James graduated to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in 2016. Wanda leaves behind her daughters, Jeannie Catherine Ann-Marie Lopatynsky Garver of Birch Bay, and Deborah Rose (Roly) Tremblay of Elliot Lake, Ontario, Canada; granddaughter, Lori Tremblay; and grandson, Matthew Tremblay, of Ontario, Canada.

She will be laid to rest at Monumenta Cemetery in Lynden, WA.
