Georgia passed away on October 29, 2012, after a long-term battle with dementia. She was a loving and compassionate woman who spent her life offering assistance to others in need.
Georgia was born in Coupeville, Washington. She was educated at Puyallup High School and at the University of Washington.
Georgia went on to achieve great success in the national health food industry. As president of the Northwest Nutritional Association, she successfully championed the lobbying of Congress, preventing over-the-counter vitamins and supplements from being classified as prescription drugs.
To further her involvement, she owned and operated a health food store in Bremerton, Washington. Georgia was involved in many other ventures as well, including real estate, a furniture and floor-covering store, and as a part-time caregiver.
There is no one on this Earth who knew her who did not also love and respect her.
Georgia is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Garron Petrick Sr.; sisters Charlene Pignataro and Michelle Julien; brother Michael Rule; daughter Martha Sheldon; one granddaughter; two grandsons; one great-grandson; five nieces and nephews; stepdaughters Dana Petrick and Jeramee Hixson; stepson Garron Petrick Jr.; and 11 step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Memorial services will be held Sunday, November 18, 2012, at noon at St. Paul's Church, 31899 state Highway 104 Northeast, Port Gamble, WA 98364.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Georgia's name to the Salvation Army.
