Nita Harrison Wiloth Burton was born on Tuesday, October 15, 1929, to Emmett Harrison and Maggie Walker Harrison in Breckenridge, Texas. She passed away on February 7, 2024, at her home. She attended Breckenridge schools. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church for over sixty-five years. She started working very early in life and continued all her life. She taught her children to honor God and keep him first in their life, to work hard and always love your family. She was married to Rudy Wiloth and raised their six children. Rudy passed away on February 25, 1978. On March 11, 1989, she married Albert Burton and they spent the next 34 1/2 years enjoying each other and their family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Emmett and Maggie Harrison; her husbands, Rudy Wiloth and Al Burton; her brothers and sisters and their spouses, Sam and Lois Harrison, Susie and Gene Dendy, Fannie and Ollie Gandy, Lurenah and Alvin Gandy, Tres Harrison, Evelyn and Les Welch, and Tommy and Mary Helen Harrison; and many nieces and nephews.

Nita is survived by her children, Mike and Becky Wiloth, Beverley and Buford Salters, Kim and Trumi Wiloth, Mindy and Bob Skelton, Tempie Wiloth, and Tammy and Tommie Brown, all of Albany; grandchildren, Cody, Cassie, Bethany, Ashleigh, Matthew, Adam, Tim, Robin, Teagan, Andy, Kaithlyn and Taryn; and 27 great-grandchildren.

The family of Nita would like to thank Home Instead and Enhabit Hospice for their help. We especially thank Dena, Tonya, and Nisa. Without their help, we could not have kept Mama home.

Interment will follow at the Albany Cemetery under the direction of Morehart Mortuary. Visitation will be held from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Friday, February 9, at Morehart Mortuary in Albany.
