Emma Burleigh, 100, a "grand lady'

Emma Bertha Wittgen Burleigh, mother of William R. Burleigh, president and chief executive officer of the E.W. Scripps Co., died Saturday.

A native of Evansville, Ind., Mrs. Burleigh celebrated her 100th birthday Feb. 11 at her home in Rabbit Hash, where she resided with her son.

A niece, Nancy DeVoe, of Evansville, described her Aunt Emma as the family matriarch and an inspiration to all.

"She had a sense of humor that never failed her," Mrs. DeVoe said.

Tom Tuley, retired Evansville Courier president and editor, remembered Mrs. Burleigh as "very young at heart. She would often call me with an idea or a comment about the Courier. She had some good thoughts."

He recalled that Mrs. Burleigh "was unhappy being away from Evansville (after she moved to Northern Kentucky) until Bill thought to subscribe to the Evansville Courier for her. That really made a difference in her life."

Mrs. Burleigh, whose roots in Evansville go back to the 1940s when her grandfather, Bernard J. Enneking co-owned a jewelry store, was the oldest living member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Evansville. She attended elementary school there and was the founding president of the St. Mary School PTA.

The Rev. Joseph Ziliak, a childhood friend of William Burleigh, remembers Mrs. Burleigh as a "grand and gracious lady. Her house was always open to the kids, and she was always supportive and encouraging of her family, friends and community.

"She was possessed of a mind and spirit of far-ranging interests."

In addition to her son, Mrs. Burleigh leaves a daughter, Charlotte Ann Dissette, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; eight grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Her husband, Joseph C. Burleigh, died in 1978.

Arrangements are being handled by the Ziemer Funeral Home East Chapel with visitation at Fountain Terrace East in Evansville from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. CDT Thursday. Prayers and the rosary will be said at 7:30 p.m.

Services will be at St. Mary Catholic Church in Evansville at 9 a.m. CDT Friday. Memorials may be made to St. Mary Catholic Church, 609 Cherry St., Evansville, Ind. 47713.

Lauderdale; a sister, Geneva Landrum of Ft. Thomas; and numerous grandchildren, great- grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
