  2. Charles R. Mercer says:

    I’d like to add my condolences & thoughts to this very sad time. My family has known Georgia for over 50 yrs, as she went to school with my sister & was my neighbor, Georgia was a very good friend to my mother & me, always helping her out when she needed it & always there when we need advice on some thing, On July 4th a friend of my couldn’t get me to answer the door, so he knocked on my bedroom window, later that day Georgia told my daughter Kayla, that’s the way that his friends have been doing it for yrsss, lol. I must say I will miss going out side & not having Georgia come out or over to see how things are going or see how are dog Axel is doing, as she loved pets. Time comes for all of us, In this case, I think it came a bit to soon !! Georgia will be missed by my family. Prays go out from Me & my family to the Wagner family.

    Dear Dan, Dodi, Randy, Marla and family,

    Thoughts are with you in the passing of your beloved wife, mother, and grandmother.

    May loving memories warm your hearts, comfort, sustain, and fill you with God’s special peace, during this difficult time and in the days ahead.

    We remember Georgia’s friendly manner and when we bowled in the same league years ago and then when she delivered our rural paper.

    In sincere sympathy,
    Jim and Jan Nomina

    Danny, Randy, Dodi, and Marla,
    I am so sorry to learn that Georgia passed away. I enjoyed working with her briefly at Gray Printing in the bindery. The Wagners kind of lost touch with each other after we stopped having our reunions, which was sad. Seems like the only time we saw each other after that was either at a wedding or at a funeral. Just wanted you all to know that I am thinking of you and that you have my deepest sympathy.
