Mrs. Burke, whose maiden name was Anna Kennedy, was born Feb. 3, 1870, at Naas, county Kildare, Ireland, and came to America when she was 19. She worked in Minneapolis as a bookkeeper for T.M. Roberts. She married Thomas Burke in 1905 at Ellsworth, Minn., and they had one son, Joseph, who lives at Estherville.
Other survivors are two sisters, Miss Mary Kennedy and Mrs. Elizabeth Dowling, both living in Ireland. Mr. Burke preceded his wife in death. (Estherville Daily News, Estherville, IA, July 8, 1944)
