Burt, Jane Gorman, Hamden Connecticut 5/24/1925 - 4/17/2017 wife of the late Edward C.  (Pa) Burt Sr. Born in East Hampton, CT. to John Thomas Gorman and Rachel Elizabeth Mack Gorman, she was a redhead from the start in appearance and attitude, ask anyone who knew her! Predeceased by her loving husband of nearly 50 years in 2002, parents and brother, John Richard Gorman, she leaves three children: Mary Jane Burt, Honorable  Edward C. (Ned)  Burt Jr. and his wife, M. Christine Burt, all of Hamden, Ct, a son, Christopher Gorman Burt (Nancy Cantara) of East Hampton; six grandchildren Timothy Serpe (Bryce), Catherine Rachel Serpe Besescheck (Karl), Patrick Eugene Serpe (Amber), Edward Clinton III (Bogdan Jedrzejowski) of Portugal, Rachel Elizabeth Burt Of L.A. and James Hafey Burt of NYC. Jane had four great grandchildren, Lola, Colton, Maya and Sidney. In addition, she leaves, the widow of her beloved brother, Dick, Patricia Stover Gorman of Mansfield, Ma. Nieces and Nephew, Margaret Gorman Costello (Sean) also of Mansfield,  Dr. Gregory John Gorman (Mark Mezak), of San Francisco, Margaret (Art) Ferris of West Haven and Barbara (Joseph) Mascari of East Haven; and numerous grand nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.

Jane’s commitment to Pa, her children and church is legendary -  a recitation of her life would not be complete without the mention of her girlfriends – life-long sisters from East Hampton – whose connection of four generations survive her. And, “The Fat Club”, her Hamden cabal of friends who met weekly to weigh in on all matters large and small and took annual trips to the cottage at Lake Pocatopaug and Vermont.  She cherished these relationships and their fidelity throughout her life and their support throughout her illnesses is so greatly appreciated by us all.

Lastly, our gratitude to the staff of Whitney Manor, Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is boundless. Mom was loved and cared for in a most respectful way. We are forever indebted to you.
