Vana Joann DePalma Burger, of Cape Coral Florida, formerly of Dover New Jersey, passed away peacefully at the Hope Care Hospice House on January 23, 2020.

She is predeceased by her husband Charles Roland Burger Jr of many years.

Vana had a love for animals, especially her German Shepherds, violet and Joey (named after her father) She loved jazz and jazz clubs, loved most of all the song “moonglow” loved old movies, like “Meet me in St Louis ”  and “The Heiress”, met Marilyn Monroe at a coffee shop in new York, while she worked for United Artist.

Vana is survived by several cousins who include Brian DePalma, the director.

Vana loved the beach and crossword puzzles, books, playing mahjong Mondays with her friends and the Red Hatters for their fun luncheons. Most days you could find her poolside playing chickenfoot with her dear friend Susan Gallic, or (pumping her gas!)

She was a friend to all the Ballynahinch family and will be missed.

    Dearest Vana,

    I will miss our Saturday morning talks and laughs. I will miss most of all not visiting with Mom and you and playing chickenfoot with you both. So many laughs and I love all the nicknames of everyone. You were so witty and funny. Most of all Dr. Phil will miss you screaming at him from your living room. Rest in Peace dear friend, till we meet again. I hope you and Mom are basking in the sun playing chickenfoot and watching over me.

    Vana, You were a wonderful neighbor and friend. Every time I make my Taco Soup I would always make sure you had a container because you loved it so! Hope you and Sue are playing lots of Chicken Foot and laughing like crazy!!!
