Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Marion Louise (McGinnis) Carrico of Shawnee Mission, Kansas was born October 28th, 1934 and passed away on July 26th, 2019. She was 84 years old.
Being born on a farm, Marion worked hard all her life. Her first job was operating a bluegrass stripper. She had eight children, which included 2 sets of twins and was very proud of them all. Marion worked cooking at Jake’s Grill and Connie’s Café. She went on to work for and retired from Blue Hills Nursing Center. Not being content with retirement, she went back to work for Town Topic in Mission, Kansas and worked until the age of 78.
Marion will forever and always be remembered for fried chicken, homemade rolls (not store bought) Pumpkin pies, banana bread and pinto beans with ham. Plus, every Halloween she would make her famous caramel popcorn. Everything was always made from scratch. She would always say ‘If you left hungry, it’s your own damn fault.’
Marion accepted the Lord and Savior into her heart and we know she has gone home to the Lord with no more worries, no more pain, and no more sadness. A place where we know she will be forever happy.
Marion was preceded in death by her parents; Raymond and Ella McGinnis, her sister Faye Sims, and her brothers John and David McGinnis.
She leaves behind husband Bill Carrico, sisters Sarah Martin, Judith Green and Mary Backs and brother Mark McGinnis. Her children Jackie Cantrell, Teresa Collins, Charles Meyer, Denise Westrem, Dennis Meyer, Lisa Meyer, Regina Almanza, Lugina Jacobs, 12 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and also her forever loyal companions Coco and Gabanna.
Till we meet again, rest in peace and happiness Mom.

I ’m Free
Don’t cry for me, for now I’m free,
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to cry, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found that peace at the close of the day.
Since my parting will leave a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
My life’s been filled, I’ve savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch,
Perhaps my time was all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
