Sr. Georganne was my great aunt and I have many memories of her as a child growing up. Sr. worked with the Mary Knoll community when I was in grade school and invited me to attend their annual fundraising banquet at the Drake Hotel in Chicago. She asked me to sell raffle tickets with the other children (a math lesson in disguise!). It was there that I was exposed to missions work and other cultures, which has stayed with me to this day. I recall visiting with her and Sr. Martinus in Chicago on many occasions, eating ice cream that she cut into slices (who knew?) and tasting many cookies and pastries in her kitchen. I also was able to visit with Srs. Georganne and Martinus in St. Petersburg, Florida when they lived there and celebrate some great times with them. Another thing that I remember was her encouragement for me to not be afraid to try new things, and to be content no matter what my circumstances were. She never failed to praise my behavior (even if it was unwarranted), my love of music, doing my best in my studies and performing on stage. She also greatly encouraged me when I chose to stay home to raise my children, and later home school them. She always had a positive thing to say to me and was always looking for the good in other people. She blessed and loved my children and I am honored to have such a loving woman of God as my aunt. Sr. Georganne will always be the gentle, soft-spoken, loving woman who chose to give her life to others and to God selflessly, and I pray that she is rejoicing in the arms of Jesus as he rewards her for her faithfulness and love.
