Connie “CJ” Jean Burch passed on Sunday, September 5th, 2021 in Queen Creek, Arizona.

CJ, as she liked to be called, spent many years working with handicapped adults and the Special Olympics in Topeka, KS.  In her free time, she was a very skilled wood worker and also loved fishing and playing poker. She was a huge fan and was always there to root on her Kansas City Chiefs during football season and her Kansas Jayhawks during basketball season. Spending time with her family, friends, and dog was also very important to her.

CJ was the beloved partner of 29 years to the late Nancy Applehans. Much loved mother of Michele Searls and her husband Chris, also of Arizona. Grandmother to Kelley Weir, Farmington, NM and Keri Searls, Las Cruces, NM. Great Grandmother to Jayce Weir.

Dear sister of Penny Atchison, Topeka, KS. and Sherry Skirvin, Emporia, KS. Remembered by her many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Shawnee Lake, Shelter House #3, Topeka, KS on Sunday, October 10th at 11am. CJ was most comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt so please honor her by wearing yours if you choose this day. It will be a very casual event and lunch will be provided.

She described herself this way: “I have a big heart and want everyone to be happy. I love my family and my dog. I like music, fishing, poker. I am simple!”

    I hadn’t seen much of Connie in the last 10 years but she was always loved and missed. I remember the fun times we had as kids when we were together.
    Penny and Sherry you have already had a lot of loss and now another blow. My heart is with you. I love you cousins.

  4. Pam Wilson says:

    CJ you know I will miss you. Just doesn’t seem real to me. We will see each other again my friend. Keep the cards warm and find that perfect crappie spot. Miss you
