Georgia Munger passed away Wednesday, April 18, 2012, having lived to witness a final spring since her leukemia diagnosis in 2008. Georgia was born in 1929 in Lamar, Colorado where she grew up on her family’s dairy farm, and graduated from high school in 1945. In college, she obtained her teaching credentials, and together with husband Glenn Munger, taught elementary school on both the east and west coasts, settling in Olympia, WA in 1958. Georgia was a teacher and school librarian in the Olympia School District for many years. In retirement, she remained active in the education community, and enjoyed art, music, books, and observing nature. In particular, she pursued her lifelong calling as an artist, and was active locally in creating and displaying her work. She cultivated many friendships over the years, and these friendships sustained her throughout months of illness.
She is survived by four siblings and her three children, Rex (Mary) Munger, Eleanor Nickelson (Tim Block), Jason Munger (Maria Richter), and granddaughter Leyla Richter-Munger.
