Georgene J. Burnett

1940 ~ 2022 (age 81)


UNION SPRINGS– Georgene Burnett, 81, of Union Springs went to be with her Lord after a long illness on April 3, 2022.

Georgene was born the daughter of the late William and Mary (Beardsley) Pinckney.

She was a life long resident of Union Springs, a retired Cayuga County Home Health Aide; a beloved Wife, Mother, Grandma, Great Grandma, Sister and Friend.  She is known for her great big heart, her love of God, family, friends, and of course the Yankees. She was also known for her love of animals, especially her cats and her precious yorkie, Sadie Mae.  Georgene had a contagious smile, beautiful blue eyes, and a warm, friendly, inviting personality.  She never met a stranger, every person to her was just a friend she hadn’t met yet.  She always saw the good in people and would welcome the opportunity to tell the people she loved how special they were every time she spoke to them..

Before she became ill, she loved crafting, gardening and cooking for her family. She enjoyed making and send cards for every occasion.  Georgene also loved spending time with George, her husband of 53 years. She was his Bride and he affectionately referred to her as his baby girl. She fiercely loved, and enjoyed spending time with her children, and grandchildren, and caring for others.

She  is survived by her husband George Burnett, her daughter: Lorrie Johnson (Corey), step sons: Todd Burnett (Dawn) and Scott Burnett (Jenny), her siblings: Dorothy (Mekeel) and Peg (Delorenzo), grandchildren: Michael Hoepfl, Jameson Johnson, Kayleigh Torres ( Antonio), Emileigh Johnson, Tyler Burnett, Danielle Rotko (Andrew), TJ Burnett (Maria), Corey Burnett, Chad Burnett (Amanda) and Brooke, great grandchildren: Tony, Taya, Blake, Baylee, and Logan, and her very special nieces and nephews, and dear friends.
