Georgia Ola Williams, September 24, 1927 -- December 17, 2022

Georgia was born in Kansas City, Missouri on September 24,1927. She was a twin birth and middle-child of the 16 children born (13 living to adulthood) to Edward and Beaulah Rodgers. Georgia was of Irish heritage and was raised and attended school in the Kansas City area.
In 1944 Georgia married Nick E. Williams and they celebrated 48 years of marriage before his death in 1992. They had three daughters who were the light of their lives. It was Georgia and Nick's goal to make sure their girls received a Catholic Education... and no sacrifice was too great to make this a reality.
Georgia devoted her life, love, and time to her family, extended family, and many dear friends. Georgia took great pride in homemaking for her husband Nick, daughters; Nickey & son-in-law Gary, Sue & son-in-law Bill, Sharon & son-in-law Tim, her grandsons and wives; Logan and Jennifer Neely, Trevor & Rachael Stiles, great-grandchildren; Alexis Neely, Aleah Neely, Connor Stiles, and Mallory Stiles. All of whom were a big part of her daily life.
Georgia touched many lives through her love and caring as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, great-aunt, and friend. Of special note was Georgia's natural artistic talent which was reflective in her drawing/painting, cooking, baking, sewing and crafting. She often said; 'If something is worth doing - take the time to do it right.'
Georgia especially loved and enjoyed; cooking, baking, nature, trees, bird-watching, the lake, fishing, and their cabin. She took great pleasure in hosting luncheons and card games for her gal-pals. She loved all kinds of music... especially Opera and the Three Tenors. She loved reading cookbooks and had quite a collection of favorites.
Georgia's legacy is in keeping with her love of family, being true to yourself, and a having a strong work ethic. She believed in being productive, working hard, and showing kindness, and generosity... especially in sharing with and helping others whenever and wherever she could. She also enjoyed "taking time to smell the roses" and spending lots of fun time with her grands and great-grands.
Georgia was a woman of faith ... and truly felt living a kind and good life ensured a place in Heaven with the Lord, and with all those she loved and who had gone before her.
Lastly, and also a part of Georgia's Legacy is that she enjoyed caring for people... especially feeding them ... which was an expression of her love AND the belief that you can never bake too many Xmas Cookies for sharing with those you love.
