Fifty-four years ago, Georgette moved her family and became a permanent resident of Lawrence. For many years she worked for Loren Product Company and New York Toy.

Her favorite day of the week was Soup Sunday, when friends and family gathered for soup and to talk about old times.
Georgette enjoyed to be surrounded by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She adored her pet cat “Little Mitten” and enjoyed watching the Millionaire TV show, Family Feud and her most favorite channel to watch was the Catholic Mass which she watched twice a day.
