BURTON — Mayor Duane Haskins recently gave a special tribute to resident Anne S. Moulton in celebration of her 100th birthday, April 24.

The tribute to Moulton said she was the youngest of five children born to John and Anguline Valusek on April 24, 1920, in Flint.

She was raised in the City of Burton and is a proud graduate of Bendle High School, Class of 1938, and met her husband Ernest D. Moulton while attending Bendle. The couple was married Aug. 9, 1940 and remained in a loving and committed union for 49 years until Ernest passed away on Nov. 20, 1989.

The Moulton’s built their home on O’Heren Street in Burton in 1955, where they raised their two sons, Richard and David, and later were wonderful grandparents and great-grandparents.

Anne worked as a bus driver for Atherton schools for more than 35 years, and also found time to grow remarkable flower gardens, cook and bake delicious treats (especially her chocolates and special chocolate pie), and still never forgot to send birthday and holiday cards to her loved ones.

In addition to the tribute to Moulton, Haskins also declared April 24, 2020 as Anne S. Moulton Day in the City of Burton. — G.G.
