Georgia was an artistic, high energy lady with a great love for animals. Because of Bernie’s profession, they moved many times both nationally and internationally. Georgia with her artistic vision and Bernie with his many craftsman skills made each home beautiful. They took those same skills into Georgia’s love of dolls. She made porcelain dolls that now grace many homes in the States and foreign countries. Georgia raised and groomed poodles for many years, but any of God’s furred or feathered creatures could find a good home with her. She loved traveling in the motorhome with husband Bernie. Her other passions were strawberry milkshakes, grandkids, entertaining, cooking, and games like cards, video games, and Yahtzee.
Funeral services will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Friday, August 25, 2017 at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Billings, Montana. Father Steve Zabrocki will be officiating.
