Jeanne has now happily joined her “Southern Gentleman” husband, Paul Burton, and their two sons, Robert Paul and John Warren. Born in Salt Lake City to Alex J. and Mary E. McDonald, Jeanne graduated from South High and the University of Utah. She thoroughly enjoyed her years as an Administrative Assistant at the Center for Public Affairs and Administration at the U. Her family and friends were so important to her and traveling with them, camping, fishing or just being together made her happy. Her life was so rich. Reading was always her escape and she was a devoted volunteer at the Library where she could check on the latest historical novels. During the weekend brunches with John, they would solve the world’s problems. Jeanne and her family so appreciated the care and love shown by her neighbor Frank Woolsey who did so much for her every day.

Life Story Info
Such a great, smart, fun and classy lady. I lived across the street from the Wards for
decades, but got to know Jeanne more in recent years when I ran into her at water aerobics classes. She was so interesting and I always enjoyed chatting with her while exercising. She will certainly be missed by all who knew her.
My sympathy to her family and friends.
She will be missed by all that were lucky enough to know her.
