Georgia Malinda Boyer, 84, of Morton, Wash., passed away Monday, May 21 at the Morton Nursing Home. She was born in Birch Tree, Missouri on July 25, 1927, to Nannie and Francis (Bud) Smotherman. As a young woman, Georgia moved to Lewis County where she met and married Oscar Boyer. The family lived in Randle until 2004 when Georgia moved to Morton a few years following Oscar's death.
Georgia enjoyed going to the Morton Senior Center, being with her family, making quilts, singing karaoke with her sister Irene, jigsaw puzzles and watching Seattle Mariners baseball games. She was deeply loved by her family. Most family members and friends enjoy the warmth of one of her homemade quilts.
Georgia will be truly missed by her surviving family, including son Bob of Morton, daughters Linda (Harold "Jan") Hornli of Vancouver and Jean Clark in England. Also surviving are 10 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, six great-great-grandchildren, a large extended family and many special friends.
Besides her parents, step-father Bake McIntire, and husband Oscar, Georgia was preceded in death by her daughter Joanne Pounders, grandsons Jim and Bruce Clark, siblings Irene Nanney, Pauline Frye, Howard Smotherman, and two little sisters Belva Jean Smotherman and Vada Sue McIntire.
Private burial will take place at the Silver Creek Cemetery in Randle on Saturday, June 2 at 10:00 a.m. At noon on June 2, family and friends are invited to celebrate Georgia's life at the Morton Senior Center with a potluck meal and time of sharing memories.
The family extends a special thank you to Nancy Pedersen and staff at the Morton nursing home where Georgia received compassionate care during her final months.
