GeeGee was an excellent cook, enjoyed doing crafts of any kind and was an excellent artist. She also loved roller skating and playing the piano. Above all else, she will be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother, who was extremely proud of her family, and for her caring nature and kind spirit which will be treasured by all who knew her.
