Aunt Georgina was one of the kindest and most thoughtful relatives I had the pleasure of knowing from a very young age. I especially remember fondly my visits to the farm and time with Georgina and Ben. Georgina will be missed but not forgotten by all of us who loved her. Rest well in the arms of the Lord dear Aunt Georgina. Love Chris Nyikos.
