She met many people who truly held a special place in her heart through her work with Avon, work at First American Bank, time with Withers Florist, and most recently with her time at the Kroger Company. Most of all, she loved spending time with her husband, son, and grandchildren. Tricia is survived by her husband, Don Burks of Pearl, MS; son and daughter-in-law, William Aaron and Casey Burks of Pearl; grandson, Mason; granddaughter, Elizabeth Jo; brother and sister-in-law, Tommy and Lee Ann Roberts of Flora, MS; nephew, Jeremy Roberts of Oxford, MS; and niece and her husband, Jennifer and Eddie Taylor of Madison, MS. She is also survived by 2 great nephews, a host of cousins, and many friends whom she called family. Tricia was preceded in death by her father, Fred Roberts; and mother, Mae Roberts. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks that donations and memorials be made in honor of Tricia Burks to the American Cancer Society (donate3.cancer.org).
