I have many wonderful memories of a very special great aunt. They start as a child spending a few weeks most summer with her. I picked huckleberries, harvested pine cones and she made the best homemade root beer! I hiked beautiful trails with Uncle Oscar and family. I was never bored and loved everything about my stay! That foundation stayed with me as an adult and I would continue to make many more memories with Aunt Georgia, Grandma Irene and Mom. I call them the three musketeers.
I feel so lucky she was a part of my life!

I think the last time I saw Georgie was at a family reunion in Morton, many, many years ago. I remember all her photo albums, full of memories, of prior reunions and many relatives I didn't know, or hadn't seen in years. I have a quilt that she made, and treasure it even more. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
