Bio

Hello, my name is Daris Burke. I am forty-eight years old, and I am a Christian who loves the Lord. I am an active member of Eastanallee Baptist Church. I have been married for twenty-eight years to Richard, and we have three children, one daughter-in-law, and one granddaughter. Richard is a paper-maker at Resolute Forest Products in Calhoun, Tennessee. Our son, Matthew, and his family live in Athens. Matthew is an Industrial Electrician at Waupaca Foundry in Etowah. His wife, Katie, is a stay-at-home mother to their beautiful daughter, Kennedy. Our granddaughter, Kennedy, is truly a blessing! She brings us tremendous joy. Our daughter, Rachel, will be a senior at Lee University in the fall of 2016. She is a Biochemistry major with a pre-med emphasis. Our daughter, Rebekah, will be a sophomore at McMinn High School in the fall of 2016. She is a member of McMinn's Swim Team. We love to spending time together as a family. We enjoy hiking, camping, going to the beach, and working in the yard together.
