Born January 2, 1933, in Davenport, Ok Died June 2, 2022, in Harrah, Oklahoma
It is with much sorrow and even greater joy that we celebrate the life of a second- generation centurion, Minnie George. Although her body has failed, her spirit lives on in Christ. Minnie was preceded in death by her mother, Fannie "Conn" Nunley, her father, Jasper Nunley, husband Edley Bernie George, her brothers Jay, Jasper, Russell, and Billy Nunley, her sisters Mable Backus, Loretta Gilbert, Pearl White, and Betty Lilly, her sons Tommy, and Nickey George, and her stepson Eddie Nash, as well as some of her Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren. She is survived by her sons, Kenneth, Gordon, and Jimmy George, her daughters Shirley Beal, Geraldine, Tina, and Leona George, her many Grandchildren, Great-Grandchildren, and Great-Great-Grandchildren, as well as in-laws, and many cousins.
Over the course of her 89-year life she came to be known as daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, mother, grandma, friend, and most importantly a kind loving soul.
She loved caring for her children and Grandchildren and will be remembered for her sweet lullabies and her amazing cooking. Nothing beats her fried potatoes and fried chicken, or her beans and cornbread.
She has touched the lives of all those who have crossed her path. Many occasions she had more mouths than she could feed, but always managed to make do with what she had. She expressed hospitality to those who walked through her door. Whatever it was, she always sought to meet the needs of others.
While we grieve her loss, we rejoice that she has made it to her eternal home in heaven with her Creator and Savior in which she has been longing. Minnie was strong, Independent, and lived her life in such a way that she was a true "Proverbs 31 Women."
Proverbs 31:25-31 states:
She is clothed with strength and dignity:
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed:
her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all."
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting:
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
She will be greatly missed but we have hope in Christ that we will be reunited with her in heaven someday.
