Linda K. Burton
Linda K. Burton was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was studying elementary education at the University of Utah when she met Craig P. Burton. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple and are the parents of one son and five daughters and are grandparents to nineteen.
Before her call as the 16th Relief Society general president, she served for a short time as a member of the Relief Society and Primary general boards. As a teenager she lived in New Zealand for three years while her father presided over the New Zealand South Mission. Recently she served with her husband as he presided over the Korea Seoul West Mission. She has been blessed to serve in various callings in Relief Society, Young Women, Primary, and Sunday School.
Sister Burton loves walking with her husband, making family memories, and studying the scriptures. She loves the scripture found in 2 Nephi 5:27: “And it came to pass that we lived after the manner of happiness.” It is her testimony that true happiness comes by living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
