Obituary for Anna Adriana Burkacki

Anna Adriana Burkacki,
On November 3, 2018, Anna Burckacki, loving mother and Oma, was called home at the age of 95.
Anna was born August 12, 1923, in Limburg, Netherlands, to Adrianus William and Cornelia Joanna (Melbroek) Vlamings. As a girl, she graduated from sewing school in the Hague. Her talents as a seamstress helped to carry her family through the second world war. Anna married Leonard Burkacki in Breda in 1945 and was sent alone on a military transport ship to America. She arrived in Richmond with minimal knowledge of the English language. There, she built her home and family. She later bartended at Eberhards in Richmond, worked at Kelly’s Crossroads Inn and was active with the VFW and Richmond Historical Society.
Years later, affectionately known as Oma, Anna enjoyed family time, reading books, sewing, traveling and entertaining in her home. She is known for her wit, pride in her heritage, love of fashion and her independence.
Anna is survived by her daughter, Coreen (Steven) Izworski of Columbus; four grandchildren, Eric (Sara) Redfield, Andrew (Amber) Izworski, Caitlin (Andrew) Butlin and Aaron Izworski; her adored and treasured great-grandchildren, Shelby, Sean and Carly Redfield, Arie and Gus Izworski and Nash, Beau and McKinley Butlin; daughter-in-law, Betty (Don) Burkacki; brother Lex (Bep) Vlamings and sister Corry Franken; a special niece, Debbie Dobbs, as well as several nieces, nephews and many friends.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Leonard Burkacki (1989); her son, Bernard Burkacki (2012); and siblings, Nanny, Ria and Ad.
