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.

She was a member of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church which brought her much comfort and friendship and the Women’s Auxiliary of CCR.
