Who else knew Eddiesteen?
In lieu of flowers
You never know the impact of a person’s life and their meaningful acts of kindness until you take a moment to reflect. Over the years of seeing St. Eddiesteen at various church services, state meetings, and convocations she has always shown forth kindness towards me.
I remember attending my first Youth Council in my early twenties without my family. She spotted me and came up to greet me and to let me know if I needed anything, she was there. She was a mother figure who would look out for you.
I also remember during my college years, when I was a student at Temple. Once again she was there to make the connection for me and to let me know one of granddaughters was a TA there and I could connect with her. Another time when I felt she was looking out.
I am thankful for her kindness towards me and her being a mother figure in the church to look out for the young women.
To the Burno Family, we’re praying for you.

I am loss for words at this particular time but your Mother meant the world to so many people. She had a special place in my heart. Several weeks ago, she was on my heart so we decided to swing by Temple Shalom to check on her. Service was over and she was upstairs and we had such an amazing time simply talking. She was one of my greatest supporters and I will miss our long sweet talks and laughs. I know this is not an easy time of life, Lady Burno lived a FULL life and made IMPACT. I am proud to be one of them that she has helped, encouraged, mentored, motivated encouraged and supported along the way. We are extending our deepest condolences.
