Georgia Sowers Obituary
Sowers, Georgia
1927 - 2018
Georgia Ann Sowers (Traxler), age 90, a servant of God who loved her husband and children and was a precious cherished grandmother, went home to Jesus, Saturday, February 24, 2018. She was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Les, who died on this same date 4 years ago. Also by her parents George and Pearl (Cummins) Traxler and sister Betty Traxler. She is survived by children, Judith (Dave) Scott, Gary (Janet) Sowers and Melody Bartoe; granddaughters, Mary Christine Randle, Lesley (Dave) Bryant, Laura (Dave) Wrubel, Jennie (Zene) Colt; great grandchildren, Christian and Carson Bryant, Isabel Paxton-Randle, Zene Colt III and Anna Colt; sister, Donna Ledford; brother, John Traxler; several cousins, nieces and nephews and many close friends at Cypress Wesleyan Church. Georgia was born in Hammond, Illinois and moved to Columbus, Ohio after high school. Soon after, she met the love of her life, Les. They were married in June of 1946. She was a stay at home mom until their 3 children were all in school. She then worked for Columbus City Schools for 28 years in the cafeteria of Westmoor Jr. High School, where she became known as the "cookie lady". She retired from there in 1987. She was a member of West Park U.M. Church, where she served in the Sunday school office and with many of the women's activities. She also attended Westgate U.M. Church. Her final years, Georgia was a dedicated member of Cypress Wesleyan Church, active in the Voyager's class. At Cypress, she was known for her AMENs during worship service, as a prayer warrior, grandmother to all the kids in the daycare, maker of "Georgia Bread" that she regularly made and delivered to the pastoral staff and many shut-ins. Georgia loved making things and giving them away; cookies, decorated cakes for special occasions, and Avon which she sold for at least 40 years. She did sewing, ceramics, crocheting, but once she started quilting in 1983, that was her love and obsession. There is a quilted piece of hers in many homes. Her last 4 years living at Carriage Court of Hilliard, Georgia has been known as the "Spunky One" who let all who cared for her, know her wants and feelings, and they each loved her in spite of it. A special thank you to Vitas Hospice for their compassionate care, going way beyond what was expected of them. Georgia will be greatly missed by her family and the many who called her friend. Family will receive friends 5-8 pm Friday, March 2, 2018 SCHOEDINGER HILLTOP CHAPEL, 3030 West Broad St. and from 9-10 AM on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Cypress Wesleyan Church, 377 Alton Darby Creek Rd., where funeral service will be held at 10 AM. Interment Alton Cemetery. Those who wish, contributions may be made to Cypress Wesleyan Church Memorial Fund, Galloway, OH 43119, in her memory.
