Patience was required for this year’s Community Hospital-Fairfax (CH-F) New Year Baby. Unusually, no babies were due in the first part of January, but this little bundle of joy was worth the wait! On January 25, 2015, Danielle Leigh Burke was born to proud parents Sandra Clark and Matthew Burke. Danielle weighed 6 lbs. and 4 oz.
Danielle and her family make their home in rural Fairfax. She is welcomed home by proud siblings, Ryan Burke, Jamie Pinzino, Madison Burke, Skye Clark, Devin Guajardo and Tristan Burke. Danielle’s grandparents are Renita and Dave Zentz, Buckeye, AZ, Bobby and Valentina Plunk, Little Rock, AR, Lonnie and Deb Clark, Cedar Rapids, IA, Betty Jo Stevenson and Jerry Stanfill, Cape Coral, FL and Danny and DJ Burke, Rock Port, MO. Her great grandparents are Grace Kentch-Mentor, Tonopah, AZ, Ethyl and Danny Vogler, Fairfax, MO and the late James and Gloria Burke, Rock Port, MO.
CH-F helped celebrate Danielle as the New Year Baby with a gift card to Babies R Us, a baby care basket, picture frame, baby book and commemorative spoon. Dietary staff prepared a special welcome home basket with a steak dinner, sparkling grape juice and wine goblets. The CH-F Auxiliary provided an adorable baby blanket and piggy bank.
