    Aunt Georgie was a caring, loving, thoughtful, and fun loving person that our families all really enjoyed being around. Since I was young I remember trips to Fox Lake on Holidays to visit Aunt Georgie and Uncle Eddie (Freckles too) to talk, walk around the yard, play cards, exchange gifts, and the kids loved to play their cool slot machine… After they moved to Waupun I brought my family to visit and we had a number of great experiences. I remember playing Sheepshead, poker, and cribbage with the family and having so much fun. The kids threw Velcro darts at the wall for hours trying to get a bullseye. We walked around the house looking at all the nice pictures, knickknacks, and even an old rotary phone (the kids loved it). After Eddie passed away we would visit Georgie once or twice a year for breakfast at Helen’s Kitchen and she would love to drive us there. After breakfast we would sit and talk and have fun around the house. Georgie was always very kind and made it a special point to show her interest in everyone’s life (especially the kids). Georgie will be missed by everyone that she knew and especially by family.
