The daughter of Cyril and Helen (Howlett) Burling was born in Pontiac, Michigan on May 17, 1933.  She married Edward Larkin and together they raised their family in the Waterford area until retiring to Atlanta in 1989 where they were members of Canada Creek Ranch.

Grandma Gay was loved by many generations at Canada Creek Ranch.  She loved them back especially her CCR “grandkids”.  Tristen and Trent-her twins were very special to her.  Gay was cared for these last weeks by her godson Brian, and her daughters. She was a member of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church which brought her much comfort and friendship and the Women’s Auxiliary of CCR.
