Georgene Kidzus Obituary
Georgene (Oleson) Kidzus, 94, died Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019. She was a lifelong resident of Harmarville, and never stopped loving the Allegheny River that flowed past her home. She is survived by sons, Ted (Ellie) and Larry (Peggy); daughter, Amy (Sharon); and daughter-in-law, Jan; also by seven grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren. Georgene was a child of the Great Depression and also of the 1936 Allegheny River flood that forced her family to leave their home through a second floor window, into a rowboat oared by an uncle who took the family to safety. Both experiences informed her life and fueled her sense of joy in the things you have rather than in what you don't. She loved to travel. A favorite destination was Atlantic Beach, N.C. She participated in Elderhostel events across the United States and took tours to England, Russia, Germany and Austria. All anyone ever had to say was, "Do you want to go?" and her answer was "Yes!" For the last three decades, she was an avid card player at the Plum and Monroeville Senior Centers. Georgene was predeceased by husband, Ed; husband, Albert; and eldest son, Chuck. She will be missed.
Friends and relatives will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11, 2019, at the BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION AND ALTERNATIVE SERVICES INC., 421 Allegheny Ave., Oakmont. Funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019, in the funeral home.
Memorial contributions may be made in her name to the Hamarville Cemetery Association, c/o David Campbell, 505 Bicker Road, Cabot, PA 16023.
