Chasidy Danielle Burdette, 11
of St Albans died May 24, 1995
at Pittsburg Childrens Hospital,
Pittsburg after a long illness,
Jeune's Syndrome. It meant her
chest was so small her lungs did
not have enough room to expand.
When Chasidy's mother, Deborah
Burdette, woke up from the
Caesarean that brought Chasidy
into the world, a nurse told
her Chasidy would probably die
by midnight. But she didn't, and
went on to love Sesame Street,
play ball and splash in a
swimming pool, all the time
pulling tubes and an oxygen
tank around to help her breathe.
Chasidy didn't go home from
the hospital for months, but
when she did, she had surgery
that gave her lungs a chance to
grow and Chasidy a chance at
life. Along with all the
surgeries, physical therapy and
speech therapy, Chasidy managed
to find time to fall in love
with Care Bears and Smurfs and
ride her tricycle. When she was 4,
she went back to the hospital
for a nine-month stay because
complications from an unrelated
virus put her in a coma and
paralyzed her right side. But
Chasidy got better and learned
to walk again. She continued to
grow and learned to ride a bike
She got a kid's crush on Billy
Ray Cyrus, danced to "Achy Breaky
Heart," and went to school.
She attended Alban Elementary
in St. Albans. Surviving: parents,
Paul (Danny) and Deborah
Burdette of St. Albans; maternal
grandmother, Lillian Vinyard of
Charleston; paternal grandparents,
Paul and Patty Burdette of
Sissonville. Service was at
10 a.m. Saturday at Casdorph-
Curry Funeral Home, St. Albans,
with the Rev. Leslie Reimer
officiating. Burial was in Cunningham
Memorial Park, St.
Albans.
