Austin, Texas | Age 93

Consuelo Manglapus "Connie" Burch passed away on Monday, December 18, 2017. She joined her husband, William E. Burch, for the holidays and can now join that big mahjong party in heaven.

There is much that can be said of the exciting events in Connie's life, from her experiences during WWII to the nomadic Army life she shared with her husband and
their children. Those who knew her also know these stories, often shared with the sound of rattling mahjong tiles in the background. After settling down in San Antonio, she worked for the San Antonio Express-News in advertising sales, and became deeply involved with the Philippine Women of America non-profit organization. She never lost her love of travel and enjoyed many years seeing the world while learning of different cultures and events. She was a fighter and fierce advocate. There was no one better to have in your corner, and no one more intimidating in a dispute. Her stories will continue to be told by all who knew her.

In addition to her husband, William, she was predeceased by her eldest son, Emerson, and her grandson, Dominic. She is survived by her daughters, Yvonne and Carol; and her sons, Patrick and William, their spouses; her 11 grandchildren; and her many great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to The Nature Conservancy,one of her long-time favorite charities.

A private family service will be held. An informal graveside memorial for extended family and friends will be held at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery at 4 pm on Wednesday, January 10, 2018.
