Her parents, George and Annie Reichelt had 5 children; Georgie, Donna, Dennis, Larry and Gary. The family lived, worked and played on their farm six miles west and south of Big Sandy, MT.

Georgie also traveled alone and with other friends and family members.
She was a member of the Sons of Norway and loved the annual lutefisk dinner.
Aunt Georgie had a memory like an elephant and vigor like the energizer bunny! She graduated valedictorian in 1947 from the Big Sandy High School. After high school she joined a couple of close friends in Spokane, WA to attend the Deaconess School of Nursing. She completed college at MSU-Northern at Havre and graduated with an LPN Associate degree.
Her career history included being a secretary at the Farmers Union Oil Company in Great Falls, LPN nurse at the Sande Convalescent Home in Big Sandy and as a live-in caretaker and companion in Northern, Central and Western Montana.
Georgie was fun-loving and adamantly devoted to communicating, visiting and keeping track of all her relatives and friends. She was a gracious and constant presence in our lives and will be greatly missed.
Georgianna made her choice to follow Jesus when she was 12 years old. She was very faithful to her convictions all of her life and finished her journey through life faithfully.
