Debra J. (Milkman) Burnham, 51.

SUTTON Debra J. (Milkman) Burnham, 51, a long time resident of Sutton, passed away peacefully Sunday evening in the Kindred Hospital, Leicester, with her family at her side, after a courageous battle with ALS. Born in Whitinsville on July 17, 1956, she was the daughter of Russell and the late Carol (Johnson) Milkman. She attended Sutton Public Schools, graduating in 1974. She also attended Quinsigamond CC and Worcester State College, where she earned her BSBA. She was a lifelong member of the Blackstone Valley Methodist Church. Deb enjoyed traveling, singing, dancing, and routing for the Red Sox.

Deb leaves behind her daughter, Jennifer Burnham of Attleboro; her father, Russell of South Sutton; two brothers, Michael Milkman and his wife Linda of Millville and Steven Milkman and his wife Barbara of Worcester; three sisters, Nancy DeBigare of Whitinsville, Kate Milkman of Sutton and Sally Laporte of Flint, MI; a niece and three nephews and her beloved dog Jasmine.

Deb's family and friends will always remember her kindness and compassionate spirit, as she would put others first, even through her own illness. Deb's greatest gifts were her wonderfully infectious laugh, ability to make friends, and her deep faith in God which inspired everyone who met her; she will be deeply missed every day.

Calling hours for Deb will be held from 4-7 PM on Tuesday, May 27, 2008, in the Carr Funeral Home, 24 Hill Street, Whitinsville. A funeral service will be held at 10 AM on Wednesday, May 28, 2008, in the Blackstone Valley Methodist Church, 61 Linwood Ave, Whitinsville.

Deb's family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made in her name to the ALS Assoc.-MA Chapter, 75 McNeil Way-Suite 310, Dedham, MA 02026.
