Georgett Wolfe Obituary

Jul 10, 2017 in Obituaries | 7 comments

  Georgett Wolfe 05/12/1948-07/03/2017 Georgett was born in Union Town, Pennsylvania on May 12, 1948. From the very beginning, Georgett had an abundance of love for those close to her and her beloved family. She may have a soft side for the ones he loved, but make no mistakes, he could put a sailor to shame. Her trucker background, love of spicy food, and sassitude got her the CB handle of Pepperbelly and she sure lived up to that name. The only other thing Georgett loved as much as her family was her love of the color purple. She will live on in all things that are purple to all those who knew her. She will not be alone in heaven, as she will be reunited with her mother, Betty Jane Moore, and her father, George William Hixon. She will finally be able to get her famous Paul Murrell hugs that she missed dearly since 2011. Paul is Linda Sue Millers’ son-in-law, and Linda was Georgett’s sister, so she very much considered Paul to be her son-in-law as well and loved him just as if he were. Georgett had two daughters, Cathy Boone and Tammy Rianda. Her physical and emotional rigidity lives on in her Texas police officers, Cathy and Cathy’s husband, Lanny. While Tammy and Georgett weren’t on the best terms, Tammy gave Georgett four beautiful grandchildren whom she loved very much:  Rhannon Box, Zachary Box, Gunner McKinnon and Sybil Rianda. She lived with her sister Linda and brother-n-law Guss Miller. They both opened their home and hearts and she enjoyed being with them, as she was in her last few minutes. Speaking of, she loved Linda and Guss’s kids Missy Murrell as well as boyfriend Mikey Driessens, and Monica Klimson as well as her husband John Klimson as she loved her own. Lastly, their grandkids Steven Miller, Ricky Wolters, and Presley Wolters. Even if you were calling for someone else in the house, you’d still be hearing from Georgett in the background. And if you happened to forget where the plates were after the nth time visiting, best believe Georgett would be the first to let you know where you should be looking. She loved being treated to manicures, pedicures, and foot massages. Her favorite pastimes included watching Netflix movies with Linda and Guss, playing computer games, and keeping up with everyone through Facebook. It would take forever to truly capture Georgett’s essence in merely just words. Only her family and friends can truly tell how rewarding it was to have known her. At the age of 69, on Monday, July 03, 2017, Georgett passed at her home in San Tan Valley, Arizona of a double collapsed lung with her sister by her side, just as she always was....
