Pat Burch

During the evening of May 24, 2020, Patricia Anne (Zitur) Burch quietly passed away, knowing the four most important men in her life had come together because of their love for her.

Born in St. Cloud, Minnesota, on Jan. 11, 1949, as the first child to Jerry and Eileen Zitur, Patsy, as her Minnesota extended family called her, moved with her parents to Aberdeen, South Dakota, in 1957. Pat, as she came to be known, began learning to become a big sister and the growing Zitur family moved again in 1960 to Billings. With her family making Billings their home, Pat grew as big sister to Charles “Chuck,” Ron, Dale and Peggy. Pat graduated from Billings Central High School and attended Eastern Montana College with a focus on education. In 1970, she married Russell Angwin and, together, they had three boys: Chris, Eric and Jason. For many years, Pat was able to have her dream career of working with children as a daycare provider. As life changes, so do our careers and Pat eventually became a valued and loved team member at Wells Fargo where she worked until her passing. In 2001, Pat married the man she always deserved, Paul Burch. Together, Pat and Paul have enjoyed life together with travel, dining, friends and quiet times together at home. During this time, Pat was able to fulfill another dream, being a grandmother to Kaylee.

Pat’s sons could not ask for a more loving and active mother. Her sons were always first in her life. She was always active in everything they did, from teaching swimming lessons when she was afraid of the water herself, to being a Cub Scout leader. Any activity Pat’s sons were involved in, she was fully involved in also, throughout their lives. Even as grown men, Pat’s sons were always her boys.

Pat is survived by her sons Chris, Eric and Jason; husband Paul; mother Eilene; brother Dale (Terrie); sister-in-law Sheryl; grandkids Kaylee, Callen, Addison and Braden; stepsons Derek (Katie) and Nick; nieces Beth (Brahms) and Dani (Brad); nephews Chad (Shalee), Conrad, Steve (Melissa), Jeff, and Joe; great nieces and nephews Bowen, Zach, Violet, Aiden, Ryanna, Jazmine, JR, Ella, Seth, Alyssa, and Brenden.

Those who went before her include her father Jerome (Jerry); sister Peggy: brothers Charles “Chuck” and Ron; sister-in-law Kathy.

Pat lived a long and loving life. She resiliently battled cancer until she was called to be with her father, brothers and sister. Pat would love to be remembered as a caring and devoted mother, grandmother and wife, always taking care of those around her and standing strong for what she cared most about.

Funeral Mass will be at 11 a.m. Friday, May 29, at St. Bernard’s Parish, 226 Wicks Lane. Interment will be in Holy Cross Cemetery.

    I was so sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. She was a wonderful coworker and I will miss her. She was funny, kind, smart, caring, genuinely nice and loved her family more than anything. Today the works is a little less bright without Pat in it. Thoughts and prayers for her family.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family. Pat was always “my best friend at work”. She was my lunch partner and now lunch will never be the same. She was like a big sister, mom and confidant all rolled up into one for the last 17 years. She was the classiest lady I have ever known. She will be greatly missed

  3. I’m so sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I used to work with her at Wells Fargo. I always enjoyed seeing her smiling face. She was always helpful with any work questions, and she always talked about her family with such love and joy in her voice. I’m sending her family lots of love and positive thoughts.

    I was so very sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. We worked together at Wells Fargo for 14 years. She was a classy lady, kind hearted, thoughtful and she was a great teammate. Always willing to help out. We had many good conversations. She loved her family. Her husband, her sons, her parents, her granddaughter, Kaylee and any other grandchild that followed as well as her nieces and nephews. I am sending thoughts, prayers and love to Paul, Pat’s sons, granddaughter, Kaylee and Pat’s entire family. Pat was an amazing lady and she will be greatly missed.

    I was very sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. She was a classy lady, kind hearted, no nonsense and a great teammate. I had many good early morning conversations with Pat. She was compassionate and offered her wise counsel when you asked her opinion. She loved her family and it was clear her family was her priority. I am thankful to have been able to know her and worked with her for 14 years. I will miss her greatly. She was one of a kind and an amazing lady.
    I am sending love, hugs and prayers to all of her family.

    Pat was a great team member and friend to many during her 20 year career with Wells Fargo. I will miss her smile and hearing about her family. I specifically recall her excitement when she met Paul and loved hearing about the great games and times they shared over the years.

    I know Pat’s faith was a core value for her and pray that will help Paul and her family. She will be greatly missed as she was a very special lady who demonstrated amazing grace!
