Teresa "Terry" Georgetti, 88, a longtime resident of Plains, passed away peacefully on May 24, 2013 at Riverstreet Manor Nursing Home, Wilkes-Barre, where she resided for the last five years.
Born Oct. 20, 1924 in Mildred, Pa., Terry was the daughter of the late William and Elizabeth (O'Neil) McGee.
She was a graduate of Cherry Township High School, and was a member of the former Sacred Heart Church, Plains.
Terry was owner of Terry's Luncheonette, Plains, from 1950 to1992. The students of Plains Memorial High School kept her busy for many years, and she thought of each and every one of them as her "kids." She also worked at the Grand Union, Public Square, Wilkes-Barre.
Terry was an avid Notre Dame football fan; she never missed watching a game.
She was preceded in death by her husband Alfred Georgetti, who passed away in 1992; brothers, Gerald, Eugene, James and William McGee; sisters, Agnes McGee, Josephine Husted and Sr. Elizaretta McGee.
Surviving are her son Tito Georgetti and his wife Mary, Plains; grandson Tony Georgetti, Sugarloaf; and several nieces and nephews.
The family thanks Dr. Patel and the many nurses, aides and the entire staff of Riverstreet Manor for the kindness, generous care and friendship they provided Terry over the past five years.
