Georgianna was such a special woman and our family will miss her dearly! From the time our children were born, she and Dick were like grandparents to them and we so enjoyed getting to know them. We loved them both, and feel fortunate to have kept in touch with Georgianna even after our church disbanded. She was always so happy to visit with us, and shared many a story of her life in St. Louis. I learned she was a good writer when she asked me to type up the stories she wrote when she took a class, one of which was entitled "A Girl by the Waterfall." She was so proud of her short stories and poems and pleased to get a typed up collection! She unfailingly shared cookies at Christmas and several cookbooks that we continue to enjoy. Larry and Susan, we are sorry for your loss. She always spoke so highly of both of you! Much Love from the Marston family.

I had the privilege of being asked by Georgiana to present a fashion show at Oakland House. She became a loyal customer and friend through Oakland. I spent several afternoons at her lovely condo sharing stories. She was a very gracious lady. I felt lucky to have known her

We were delighted to meet Georgianna in recent years, and happy that she could celebrate Christmas with us. She was a gracious lady with a pleasant, optimistic outlook on life. Our condolences to the family.

Dear Larry & Susan,

I extend my most sincere condolences on the occasion of your Mother's passing. During my years of active elective politics and service in the state legislature, your Mom was a loyal friend and booster among her many acquaintances in the Affton community. Thereafter, she continued to be a good friend and loyal client with Mr. Gerber. Thank you for your extra care and support of your Mother as her physical needs increased during the last few years.

Best wishes always,
Tony Dill

Dear Susie:

Sorry to hear of your mom's passing. This brought back so many memories of us walking home from Hixson so many years ago and talking over the back fence.

With deepest sympathy,
