PVT GEORGIA EASTMADE GERARD,
WOMEN'S ARMY CORPS
Georgie served in the Army during WORLD WAR II

She told her husband, Arthur Gerard "If you go off and work away somewhere I'm gonna join the service." And so, she did! She received full military honors at her funeral, and the flag they presented to my mother in law at her service now rests in our home.

I only knew Georgie in her later years, and whether it was a "creative imagination" that comes with getting older, or the real deal, I loved every story she ever told. She made me laugh. She loved holding my baby, Mattie. And she lovingly wore her dear late husband Arthur's watch on her wrist, every single day, constantly reaching down to touch it and turn it around on her small wrist. She is missed.
