Betsy Burke Leonard, 77, passed away on Friday, May 10, 2024, at SECU Hospice Care Center of Yadkin. She was born to the late Aaron Burke and Elizabeth Davis Burke on February 20, 1947, in Forsyth County.

In her free time, Betsy enjoyed attending SOS in North Myrtle Beach and spending time with her family.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Larry Burke. She is survived by her loving son, Perry Leonard (Kim); granddaughter, Kristen Elizabeth Leonard; and special cousin, Lynn Jernigan; along with numerous friends and family.
