Obituary for Kristina Burke
Kristina Lee (Jaynes) Burke
Age 40, of Reynoldsville, NY, passed away on October 12, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer. She went to heaven at too young of an age and with so much life ahead of her. She left behind the cancer that ravaged her body for more than seven years, hopefully making it wonder why it ever messed with her. The family will receive friends and relatives on Sunday (Oct. 16) from 4pm-7pm at the Royce-Chedzoy Funeral Home, 212 E. 4th St., Watkins Glen. A funeral service celebrating her life will be held at the funeral home on Monday at 11:00am; followed by a reception at the Reynoldsville United Methodist Church. Kristina is survived by her dedicated and loving husband, Allan; her two children the loves of her life, Kaylynn and Kristofer; devoted parents, Dale and Linda Jaynes; loving brothers, W. Scott Jaynes and special friend Geoff Marabella of Rochester, and Sean (Jonilyn) Jaynes, and their children Jaeden and Isaac of Ballston Lake, NY; grandfather, William Jaynes, formerly of Reynoldsville; brothers-in-law, Aaron (Molly) Burke, of Saranac Lake, and Anson (Tammy) Burke of Norwood; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by grandparents, Alta Jaynes; and Gilbert and Flora Hillerman. She graduated from Watkins Glen High School in 1994; SUNY Morrisville in ’96, and SUNY Institute of Utica/Rome in ’99. She and Allan married on June 26, 1999.
