In 2016, Mrs. Buerke celebrated 20 years of marriage with her husband, Brian. They have four children, Elizabeth, Patrick, Katherine and Grace. All of their children are graduates or current students of St. Ignatius Loyola School. Living their Catholic faith is central to the Buerke family.
Mrs. Buerke is an avid reader, reading between 2-5 books per week. Her other interests include figure skating (as a spectator) and singing.
She is grateful to be a part of the St. Ignatius Loyola famliy and invites you to stop by the library.
