Georgette lived her life for her husband and children, and her hobbies, whether it was traveling, shopping, dining or entertaining, were always centered around them. Through cooking she demonstrated love and her endless hospitality.
Georgette was a leader and advisor to her family, friends and community, and was admired for her humor, strength, compassion and devotion. She viewed her greatest accomplishments as the professional and familial successes of her children. Those who were blessed to be a part of her life witnessed an unparalleled generosity uniquely coupled with a quiet elegance. She was an inspiration to everyone around her, and will be greatly missed and always remembered.

Dear Stormy and Family, our love and prayers go out to you. Georgette was special to Teresa as she was life’s role model for a mom, wife and woman. Your marriage and example on how to raise a family was a blessing to many and one that greatly influenced Teresa and I as a young couple growing up in the Lebanese Community. We will always cherish our memory of her and her place in our family.
So sorry to hear this sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I feel very fortunate to have witnessed what a wonderful person Georgette was, and I know that she will be very missed.
