Obituary for Gladys "Chicky" Lajes-Burke (Mercado)

Gladys "Chicky"  Lajes-Burke (Mercado)
Gladys Margarita Lajes-Burke “Chicky”, aged 69 of Temple, originally from New York, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on January 21, 2018 in Temple, Texas.

She was a beautiful, vibrant and loving wife, mom, Nana, sister, Titi and friend. We will miss her infectious laughter, smile, talks, listening ears, family game times and birthday calls.

Chicky took fashion cues from no one. She could always be found wearing an adorable outfit with cute shoes and matching gold jewelry. She loved dancing to salsa music. She was “tiny” but her presence was mighty!

She is survived by Craig Burke (husband), Denny Lajes (son), Maria Correa (daughter to her), Kayla Earth, Devin and Branden Lajes (grandchildren), Jessica Segarra (daughter), China Morales (sister), Eddie and Cookie Perez (brother-in-law and sister) as well as her 4 nieces Nady Martin, Neysa Perez, Sandra Carney, Maritsa Santiago and their families. She is preceded in death by her parents Antonio and Hermenegilda Mercado, son Justin Joel and her nephew Anthony Morales.

A family and friend visitation will be held at 12 PM on Friday, January 26, 2018 at Hewett-Arney Funeral Home with funeral services beginning at 1 PM. A burial will follow at North Belton Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to Craig Burke to help defer the costs of expenses.
