Maurita "Murt" Burke, 89, beloved wife of the late Dennis L. Burke passed away peacefully at home on June 18, 2023. 

Murt was born on August 29, 1933 in Richland Center, WI daughter of the late Gerald and Mabel (Hoffman) Johnson. She worked with her husband at Clearfield Cheese for many years. In her spare time she enjoyed watching golf and knew many of the golfers by name. She loved to play Sheephead, and crocheting. Murt was also proud to take care of her lawn until she could no longer do it. Murt enjoyed having a "cold one" and always preferred a heavy beer.  She was a longtime member of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. She will be fondly remembered for her quirky sense of humor. 

Murt is survived by two children: Denise (Steven) Seubert, and Christopher (MaryJo Allen) Burke. Two grandsons: Terry (Jennifer) Seubert and Keith (Betheny) Seubert along with six great grandchildren: Addyson, Rolland, Ryker, Boden, Soren, and Coley Seubert. Murt leaves two brothers: Jim (Marion) Johnson and Virgil (Sharon) Johnson, a sister-in-law, Norma Jansen, along with many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
