Georgia M. Bolinger, 81, of Anchorage passed away at Anchorage Regional hospital, on Wednesday, June 12, with family at her side. She was born May 20, 1932, in Longrun, MO, to James B. and Rosa Mae (Adams) McRae and was raised in Missouri and Michigan. Her parents moved to Yakima, WA, following her graduation from high school in 1947, when she was barely 15. She was gifted in many ways and could have done almost anything, but she realized early on that what she wanted most in life was home and family.
Two years later she married Delmar Lizotte and had two children. That marriage failed but, in 1961, when she was working at the 100-N site in the Hanford Atomic Works area, she met Morris S. "Mike" Bolinger, the man she would love and be loved by, for the rest of her days. They married on April 20, 1963 and, shortly thereafter, moved north to Anchorage.
Georgia was extraordinarily kind and generous. She could and would mother anybody or anything and her ability to provide love and support to those who knew her seemed endless. Children and animals gravitated to her, perhaps because she never lost her childlike delight in the world and everything about her. In her heart and at her table, there was always room for "one more."
She is survived by her husband of 50 years; two children, Renee M. Paredes of Wasilla and Morris A. "Reese" Bolinger, of Fitchburg, WI, as well as three granddaughters and seven great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; a son, Skylan M. Lizotte and a half-brother, Elmas Haskins.
At her request there was no funeral; a graveside ceremony was held for immediate family. For those wishing to send remembrances, the family suggests a donation to Kid's Kitchen or Bean's Cafe in Anchorage, the
, or one's favorite charity.
Arrangements were cared for by Evergreen Memorial Chapel. Georgia's full obituary and an online guestbook may be visited at www.janssenfuneralhomes.com
