Georgia Lucille Coombs, former resident of Kenedy, TX passed away June 5, 2018 in Carrollton, TX from natural causes at age 90. Georgia was born December 23, 1927 in the Viggo Community, Beeville, TX. She enjoyed the county life and activities with her many friends, family, and relatives. She rode horses, attended dances, was a member of the band, and sang in the high school choir. She met Harold Coombs while he was attending bomber school at the Beeville Naval Air Station (later becoming Lieutenant Coombs, Plane Commander.) They married July 24, 1945 at St. John’s Catholic Church in El Cerrito, Richmond, CA. They were married for 63 years. After the war, they bought a farm in the New Bremen community near Karnes City, TX and started a family. Their first child, a son, died at the age of 7. They had 3 more children, 2 daughters and another son. In 1957, the family moved to Karachi, Pakistan where Harold worked for General Mills for 2 years. To get there, they sailed on the Queen Elizabeth Ocean Liner to England and around the Canary Islands and Africa, eventually completing a trip "Around The World." After returning from Pakistan, the family moved to Kenedy, TX. Georgia stayed busy being a homemaker, entertaining, farming, ranching, and taking care of her mother. She played softball, was a member of the Ladies Lutheran Group, the Alethean Study Club, and the Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary. After some time, they sold their house in Kenedy, and moved back to their farm near Karnes City. In 1993 Georgia and Harold sold the farm and moved to the Lost Pines area in Bastrop, TX. They resided there for 12 years before moving to Carrollton, TX in 2005. Georgia loved traveling - through the United States (including visiting Harold’s relatives in California) and to many countries around the world. She frequently stayed in Rockport, TX where Harold built a coastal vacation cabin. She spent many hours working on genealogy, and also enjoyed sewing, reading, gardening, and watching old TVshows. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren and favorite cat Lucky. While in Carrollton, she was very active and enjoyed dining at various restaurants, attending plays and musicals at Opera Houses, and visiting nearby casino resorts. She loved telling her new friends stories of her great exploits in Africa, Switzerland, and Pakistan. Georgia had a full life, being open to new ideas and fun activities. She was humble, kind, and ready to help those in need. Georgia was preceded in death by son David Coombs, husband Harold Coombs, sister Gladys Diebel, niece Mary Jean Bevil, and parents Henry Lee Isaacks and Medora Sophie Rothlisberger Isaacks. She is survived by her children: Catherine Johnson (husband Gary), Patricia Coombs, and Gary Coombs (wife Ruth), her grandchildren: Rosie Johnson, Johan Coombs, Katriina Coombs, Justin Rasti (wife Jenifer), Jonathan Rasti (wife Lauren), Mason Rasti (wife Kelly), and Mari Vallejo (husband John), 8 great-grandchildren, niece Betty Newton (husband Jon), grandnephew Hart Hoover (wife Emily and their children), and special friend Heide Pointer.

So sorry to learn of Georgia's passing. I knew her many years ago when we both lived in Kenedy, Texas. She was a special lady that I remember although I never saw her again after my husband and I moved to George West. I did keep keep up about her through one of her special friend.s, Ruby Frazier and a long time friend of mine. I pray for her family and love ones and I do know we will see each other in heaven again. You see I am only a month older than Georgia.
