Georgia Belle Woolfe Dodge
Our beloved mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and
dear friend Georgia Belle Woolfe Dodge passed away peacefully in her sleep November 28, 2008.
Born to George Edward Woolfe and
Isabel Mary Cornish in Aguilar, Colorado in 1935, Aunt "Sissy" spent a fun, mischievous,
childhood in Aguilar, Crested Butte, Sommerset, and her beloved Paonia, Colorado. She graduated from Paonia High School in 1953. She lived with her first husband, Harold Trujillo, in California where they had two children, David and Eileen. After spending time in Oakland and Fresno, they eventually settled in Pueblo, Colorado where she raised her family. In 1992 she returned to the Paonia area where she eventually married her second husband, Dewey Dodge in 1997. In recent years she moved to Orem, Utah to be near her daughter and grandchildren.
Georgia enjoyed her work as a case worker for the Pueblo Department of Social Services
where she worked for over 20 years. Her interests and
hobbies included gardening, genealogy, taking in stray animals, being with her grandchildren, meeting and helping people, and spending
time with her family & church friends. She loved to
travel with Dewey in the Fifth wheel. She belonged to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Georgia wrote for her obituary "I have done many things in my life and through repentance, hope to have been forgiven for my sins. I
thank the Lord for the sacrifice of his only begotten son. . . . I look forward to seeing the face
of God and greeting my eternal family . . . it will be worth the journey. I love my family, friends, and church brothers and sisters . . . a belated
thank you for all your prayers and comfort."
We miss her deeply but know that she is in a happier place, reunited with her family and
loved ones who have gone before. Georgia is survived by her two children, David Trujillo(Diana), and Eileen Groesbeck (Phil), three sisters,Shirley Britton (Eddie), Neoma Antisdel
(Gary), and Sharlene Maddox, 5 grandchildren (Chris,
Tyler, David, Sara, and little angel Daria), as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews,and friends who will all miss her very much.
