She loved holidays and family get-togethers, any chance to spend time with her family was important to her and everyone loved her home-made “Chicken and Noodles” and Christmas Buckeyes.
“A Poem for our Mother” The angels gathered near your side, so very close to you for they knew the pain and suffering, that you were going through. I thought about so many things as I held tightly to your hand. Oh, how I wished that you were strong and Happy once again but your eyes were looking homeward to that place beyond the sky where Jesus held his outstretched arms. It was time to say goodbye as I struggled with my selfish thoughts for, I wanted you to stay so we could walk and talk again like we did…just yesterday. Jesus knew the answer and I knew you loved him so I gave to your life’s greatest gift, the gift of letting go.
We love you Mom. As a lifelong Christian, Georgeann was an active member of the First United Methodist Church of Crooksville, Ohio, and Crestview Florida. For many years alongside both family and friends, she would spend countless hours preparing home cooked meals for the church’s congregation.
