The Irmo Arbor Day Commission is donated two trees that were dedicated at 4 pm on April 12 at Nursery Road Elementary School to honor Marge Burris, long-time secretary at Nursery Road (from 1981 until 2000). Nursery Road has over 100 retirees who have organized this memorial service.
Mrs. Burris was loved and appreciated by all who worked with her and her memory is a legacy for the school.
A large group of retirees and friends of Mrs. Burris attended the dedication. Her two daughters, Jill and Joy, also attended. Marge Burris lost her 7 year battle with ovarian cancer last September. Her spirited love of life and great sense of humor complimented her outstanding professional skills and accomplishments. She is remembered with great admiration by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Mrs. Burris died in September of 2021 and due to Covid, a gathering had not been possible until now.
