Ginger Burris

April 5, 1961 — July 15, 2021

Ginger A Burris, age 60, passed away peacefully surrounded by her three children July 15, 2021, in Independence, KS. She was born and raised in Caney, KS, to William (Bill) and Evelyn Carinder.

Ginger married her high school sweetheart, Luther Burris. Ginger lived her dream as a stay at home mom raising two wild boys until surviving Luther’s passing in December 1991. Ginger married Greg Larkin in June 1994, bringing Jessica Larkin into the family. Ginger and Greg enjoyed 23 years of marriage until mutually separating ways.

Ginger never met a stranger. She loved meeting new people and sharing stories. She was the Director of the Community Preschool in Caney, KS, for over 10 years. Ginger also loved to travel when she could. Her most fulfilling passion other than her children were animals. Ginger always took exceptional care of her animals and any strays that made their way to her like they were her own children.
