Vivian Burt


Vivian Burt, 86, passed into her Lord’s loving arms on July 17, 2022 in Duluth, MN. Born in Brainerd, MN on November 20, 1935 to Frank and Dorthy Every, she married Arthur “Red” Burt on November 14, 1953. They raised their four children in Silver Bay and spent their senior years in Duluth. Arthur proceeded Vivian in death in 2007. 

The hallmark of Vivian’s life was her unwavering devotion to her family.

A loyal wife and loving mother, she loved her children and grandchildren fiercely and unconditionally. During Arthur’s last years she was his devoted care taker, passionate about keeping him at home and his quality of life. A family burial service will take place at Evergreen Cemetery.

Vivian is survived by her sister, Debra Burt of Two Harbors, MN; daughter, Brenda (Dan) Burt of Oregon; sons, Curtis (Jill) Burt of Andover, MN, Arlen (Leigh) Burt of Saginaw, MN, Todd Burt of Duluth, MN; 5 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild.
