Ann Eagleburger

03/26/1942 - 06/03/2021

Ann Eagleburger (Burnett) of Mesa, Arizona, was born on March 26, 1942 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She spent her childhood years in Waldron, Arkansas. She later moved to Escondido, California where she attended Escondido High School and was voted Homecoming Queen. She attended the College of North Texas University and the Northern Arizona University (then Arizona State Teachers College) where she was a member of Gamma Phi Beta and voted Snow Queen of Sigma Chi. There she met her husband David Gammon Eagleburger. Ann and Dave were married for over 50 years until his passing on December 27, 2018.

Ann taught Kindergarten at Mesa Public Schools for 25 years until she retired to take care of her mother. She was a member of Mahnah Club and PEO as well as many other local organizations. Ann was a loved and cherished daughter, wife, mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother.

She is survived by sons, Matthew and his wife, Megan and their two sons, Jack and Craig, Casey and his wife, Nicolle and their two sons, Buck and Mack. She was preceded in death by her mother, Margaret Henderson, step-father Leming Henderson, father James (JL) Burnett,  step-mother, Dorothy (Dot) Burnett, brother Hugh David Burnett, husband, David Eagleburger and her beloved dogs, Frank, Fred, Bob, Lulu, and Gracie.

Ann adored her friends and family, and was available for anyone that needed to talk. We are all going to miss her smile, encouraging words, and optimism. She wanted everyone to know that she led a full life and cherished her time with all of you. She is on the other side enjoying laughter, her dogs, lunch with friends, being with her Arkansas and Texas family, and dancing with Dave.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hospice of the Valley at 1510 E. Flower Street, Building #2, Phoenix, AZ 85014. An open house will be held in her honor from 4pm to 8pm on Saturday, June 19, 2021. Please contact the family for the location.

    Anne’s husband David and my husband grew up together. Anne’s radiance lit up a room, she put everyone else’s feelings before her own.

    Ann and I were close friends from sixth grade thru high school in Escondido, CA. Ann was a good student, active in all school activities, and was a loving daughter to her mother, Margaret Henderson. Her family was her most important love.

    Ann was truly one of the most special people I’ve ever known. She was smart, beautiful inside & out & kind to everyone she met.
    She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

    My years teaching at Robson are a treasure trove of great memories. Ann not only was a fun colleague, but was a Kindergarten teacher to one of my children. Alway upbeat and full of joy making every room she entered light up. Always gentle, generous, and truly kind to everyone. I know she’s with Dave now and there is no place she’d rather be. She will surely be missed.

  • I knew Ann through my sister. She is a beautiful and graceful soul, a true southern belle. She will be sorely missed.

    Ann and I taught school together in Mesa. We lost touch when I moved to Sedona. She was a very classy, gentle, beautiful person loved by all especially those cute little ones whose lives she influenced. So sorry to here of her passing.

    Ann treasured her family including David, sons, daughter-in laws and grandsons. She was a caring family member to her mother, stepmother, father, stepfather and siblings. So many young children began their education with Mrs. E and Ann provided it with joy and loving care and the parents always felt their children were special. I was very lucky to teach kindergarten for many years at Robson with Ann. The school staffs of several schools benefited from her her dedication to teaching, involvement in school activities and her charming way of supporting staff, students and parents. The Mesa community also benefited from Ann’s involvement, dedicating time and hard work. Ann gathered friends from the organizations, school staffs and friends she met as she raised her sons. Many of these friends stayed dear to her throughout her life. These friends received such love and interest from Ann. I will so miss the many talks we had over the years both in person and on the phone. I am waiting to get her new cell phone number! She should have a good network with her life in the heavens. Love you dear friend.

    Ann was my first cousin. We grew up in Waldren, Arkansas where all of the Burnett families lived. Many of the families moved to Marshall, Texas. Ann had moved to California and Arizona. She always kept in touch with all of us and faithfully came to Texas to visit or attend family events. Her smile was always there to make all of us cheerful. I was looking forward to having a double 80th birthday celebration with Ann, but now she will have her birthday in a more glorious place.

    I met Ann or “Mrs. Eagleburger” when I was in 6th grade and assisted her in her kindergarten class at Lincoln elementary. A friendship was borne and I babysat for her for many years and also assisted when she hosted school functions. I lost touch as I grew up, married and had a family. She was defiantly a major influence in my life❤️
