To all of Georgaleen's family, Rhea and I are sorry for your and our loss. Sister Georgaleen has been a strong and loving member of Marietta OES what seems like forever! She and Dale were our friends all of our Masonic lives and we loved our friendship with them. We seemed to live close to them, where ever we lived; on Second Street in Marietta or in Reno across the road from Georgaleen. They both are living with our Lord now. God Bless them both.

Georgaleen was a terrific mentor to me when I joined Eastern Star in Marietta. Sally Gifford was "Mom #2" and Georgaleen was "Mom #3." The most we had was when we went to the Grand Chapter Sessions. She was a lot of fun and will be missed.
