Pinky lived a full and active life. Without a doubt, her greatest love was her family. She was the foundation of the family, raising five children and managing a busy household. There are no words to express how special she was to her family. She was predeceased by her devoted husband of 64 years, Robert E. Burey. She is survived by her children, Karen R. Prince, Susan L. Coulter, Patti G. Burey, Robert S. Burey and Brett M. Burey; 11 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren; and her brother and sister, John and Catherine Winstel.

Pinky loved the outdoors. She enjoyed camping and canoeing in the Adirondack Mountains with her husband, Bob, family, and friends. She was also a member of both Honey Hill and Bluemont ski patrols. Her other interests included golfing, bowling, the WNY Gas and Steam Engine Association, the Attica Historical Society, and the Attica Haunted House Association.

Pinky was always thinking of others and will be dearly missed. Services will be private.
