There will be a memorial service for Garry and Gene Burns at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Scapa, on Saturday, Sept. 17 at 10:30 a.m. It is open to all friends and family wishing to attend.

Garry Burns (1939 – 2021) and Georgina (Gene) Burns (1939-2020) both passed away during the pandemic restrictions so their daughters decided to wait until there were no restrictions to hold the memorial service.

Garry was raised in Scapa, the son of George and Bernie Burns who operated the Scapa General Store. They were also school bus drivers and had a trucking business and George was a grain elevator agent for a time.

Gene was the daughter of Manly and Pearl Viste and she grew up on the family farm in the Dowling district with her six siblings.

“If it can’t be fixed with Duct Tape, then you’re not using enough Duct Tape.”

“Nice sock and sandal combo, Said No One Ever!”

“Kids today have different things to worry about than we did as kids, like, which pair of $200 track shoes to wear today?”
