I will dearly miss my aunt Georgia!! There is a long list of wonderful memories I could share about her - one is she was my fun "Wonder Woman" aunt! :) When she came to visit her sister in KY, she would always have pictures to share of her children and grandchildren. She loved each and every one of you so much! There is joy in my heart, just knowing she is with our Lord!

We are so very sorry for your loss. Harry and his entire family are in our Hearts & Prayers. We got warm welcoming into the neighborhood from Georgia and Harry when we moved here 2 years ago, with some really yummy bread she made us. May God comfort you in your time of need. I will miss sitting out on my back porch and looking over and seeing Georgia sitting outside as well and waving back to me with a smile.❤

We are so sad to hear of Georgia's passing. We loved her so much and will miss her. We are so glad we were able to see her a few weeks ago and talk with her. We always had so much fun with her and Harry. Went out West with them twice and to Put and Bay on vacation many times. Always had a lot of laughs when we got together. We are sure going to miss her. She was the best!! Rest in Peace Georgia and know you were loved by many.

Harry, Laurie, Julie and Danny,
And to your spouses and all the precious grandchildren that made Harry and Georgia 's world so complete.
My deepest sympathies to you all. Georgia was such a great neighbor, an amazing cookie baker and a superb seamstress. I have such fond memories of the neighbors on "Stork Watch" at the upcoming birth of each of Harry and Georgia 's children. The pride and joy in Harry's face as he announced the arrival of each new member. That pride and joy was a theme throughout their marriage and the raising of their family. Georgia was truly the heart of the home. May all your memories help to carry you through this time of grief. Be patient with yourself and give it time. May you bask in the beautiful memories of a very special and dear person.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Georgia. We spent years together at Swanton Twp & Swanton High School. I had the privilege of seeing her last year at the corn festival school reunion and had a nice visit. Georgia was always very energetic and focused as a young girl and knew how to get things done. I know that all the good memories will serve to comfort Harry and the children in the future. She will be missed. Joyce Brodbeck
