  1. Vivian & Family

    Sorry to hear about Aunt Georgie.We are so glad we got to spend some time with her a few years back. Quite a lady. We are thinking of you. Danny & Barbara

  2. To the family of Georgie:

    It was a privilege to have known Georgie. She was an influence of mine while growing up on the Mesa. I remember her vividly at the local horse shows and gymkanas.

    We also shared a Custer County connection, and I have copies of her as a child in front of Froze Creek School.

    What a beautiful and vivacious lady!

  3. Dear Vivian and Family,
    It is a sad day for us hearing of the loss our friend, your mother & grand mother, Georgie. We have special memories of her from those days of riding the trails, attending gymkhana events where she could out run the best of horses with her Rebidoll, our evenings playing Aggravation and her great chocolate chip cookies. We will miss her smile, laughter and humor. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Sincerely, Bonner and Linda McCarty

  5. Sorry for the loss. We just lost another tough lady. Family ment so much to Aunt Georgie. I have been a member of the family for over 46 years, and when family was in town Aunt Georgie provided the home away from home for them. She had an infectious laugh, I will hear it for a long time. She is at peace now and not feeling our earthly pain. Rest in peace Aunt Georgie. We love you!!
