Lydia O Burnett

February 7, 1925 — October 12, 2023


Lydia O. Burnett passed away on October 12, 2023, at her son's home in Wabash, Indiana. She was born on February 7, 1925, in Rome, Italy to a loving family. Lydia was the youngest sibling and is survived by her two sons: Casey O. (Rosanne) Burnett of Justice, IL and John (Cindy) Burnett of Orland Park, IL. She also leaves behind four grandchildren: Laura, Amanda, Crystal, Ross, and Johnathon, as well as four great-grandchildren: Joshua, Katherine, John, and Natalie. She was preceded in passing by her husband, Casey N. Burnett and by each of her siblings - she was the youngest of them.

Lydia dedicated her career to the art of sewing and was a skilled seamstress. She spent most of her career working in Italian Suits and even had the opportunity to work on a suit for the legendary actor John Wayne. Her attention to detail and craftsmanship were highly admired by all those who had the pleasure of wearing her creations.

Beyond her professional accomplishments, Lydia will be remembered for her warm and kind-hearted nature. She had a genuine love for people and rarely knew a stranger. Her ability to make others feel welcome and valued was one of her greatest gifts. Lydia's compassion extended not only to her family but also to everyone she encountered throughout her life.

Family was incredibly important to Lydia, and she was a devoted wife and mother. Her husband, Casey N. Burnett stood by her side throughout their journey together. Their unwavering love and support provided the foundation for a strong and nurturing family dynamic. Lydia's sons were the pride and joy of her life, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

Religion played a central role in Lydia's life as she was a devout Catholic. Her strong faith guided her actions, providing comfort during difficult times and bringing joy during moments of celebration. The values instilled in Lydia through her religion shaped the way she treated others with kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and understanding.

Lydia's passing leaves an immense void in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Her infectious smile, gentle spirit, and loving nature will be deeply missed. However, her memory will live on through the countless lives she touched with her warmth and generosity.

In honoring Lydia's life, it is important to remember the joy she brought to others and the impact she had on her family. Let us celebrate her legacy and carry on her spirit of love, kindness, and compassion. Though she may no longer be physically present, her memory will forever remain in our hearts.
