Georgia Lee Hollister, beloved wife of Ted Hollister, passed away on October 20 after a two-year-long illness. Always brave and steadfast, Georgia battled her illness with the grace and composure that she had lived her entire life.
Georgia spent her childhood and early life in Crawford, Nebraska, a small farming community. She graduated from high school with her twenty-eight classmates in 1960. After high school, she pursued her career as a secretary with a series of increasing responsibilities and moved to San Francisco in the mid-60's. Georgia then moved to the Monterey Peninsula where she was Deputy City Clerk and Treasurer for the City of Pacific Grove.
It was there that Ted Hollister, a local veterinarian, had the immensely good fortune to meet her and find the love of his life. Ted and Georgia married and spent the next forty years together.
In the second half of her life, Georgia had the time to develop her innate gift for sewing, calligraphy and needlepoint. In addition, Georgia and Ted shared a love of animals and were always surrounded by a variety of dogs, cats and other creatures that just "happened into their lives". For thirty years, she volunteered weekly at the SPCA shops in Pacific Grove and Carmel as well as spending several years with the Auxiliary raising money to support various SPCA causes.
Surviving Georgia are her husband, Ted, and Veronica, the perfect dog; children, Betsy Foy, Melia Bosworth, Dinah Williams and Andy Hollister and their families and her sister, Jo Hoshino and husband Dan, their children and grandchildren.
Georgia was a kind, loving and talented person who will be sorely missed by many. A Celebration of Her Life including a display of her calligraphy and needlepoint will be at Forest Hill in Pacific Grove on Sunday, December 3 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm.
