Georgia F. Henry (nee Adams), on January 20, 2022, of Runnemede, NJ; formerly of NE Philadelphia, PA. Age 75.
Beloved mother of Loralee Cardie (Kevin), Angela Pacewicz, and the late Elwood ("Chuck") Pacewicz. Devoted Gippy of Samantha, Brittanie, Joey, Jack, Tyler, Olivia, Lucas, and Max and Great Gippy of Skyler, Hailey, Anthony and Tatiana. Dear sister of the late James Adams.
Georgia was an artist and an avid reader from a young age. Her love of books had turned into a passion for writing. She is the author of two novels and has inspired her youngest daughter and granddaughter to follow in her footsteps.
As the matriarch of her family, Georgia has been a role model to the younger generations of the family, her love of education led her to getting a bachelor's degree in criminal justice in her seventies, showing the family to follow your dreams, it's never too late so if you want it you work for it. Throughout her amazing journey on this earth her biggest accomplishment was being an amazing single mother to her girls. She taught them worked hard, instilled morals and she loved with her whole heart and soul and many times did without so they could have what they probably didn't need. She was a giver.
Georgia loved to be surrounded by her family, she was so proud to become a Grandmother multiple times and the joy kept coming when she was blessed with four great grandchildren. Georgia found happiness when surrounded by friends and family. The beach was her happy place so you will see her in the waves and feel her beneath your feet in the sand.
Services and interment are private at the request of the family.
There are no events scheduled.
Our dear Cousin Georgia, We grew apart for about 60 years, but getting reaquainted was a real joy in the past few years we have been back together. WE have told the priest in Philadelphia , where we went to school together about us and they you are in their prayers and Masses. WE will miss your closeness to us. GOD BLESS YOU AND REST IN PEACE. Love, Joe and Fran Adams.
Gippy..what can I say….mother to my stepson’s mother you would think I wouldn’t have much of a relationship with her let alone call her a friend, but yes, friend she was. She wrote me a wonderful letter years ago welcoming me to the family. We saw eachother at her grandson’s events and parties through the years and even though he is now an adult we have kept in touch over Facebook and attending art shows she was entered in. She was someone you could easily talk to and she loved to laugh. Her love for her family was obvious and so was her willingness to help others . Even though you weren’t my Gippy, Gippy is who you were and will always be.
The strongest woman I’ve ever met. Full of love, life, empathy, compassion and creativity. What a fighter! We love and miss you Ma, nothing seems right nothing seems real. But I’m glad you’re no longer suffering.
To meet her once was like seeing a long lost friend. A warm, kind, genuine soul who loved with all of her heart. You will be missed. Rest well my friend. xoxo
Georgia was a neighbor of mine for over 10 years. She was one of the sweetest kindest and caring people you could ever meet. We would talk to each other almost every day from our porches. She would always ask how everyone was doing and would tell me some stories that she red. She had a deep passion for reading and would offer you a good book to read after she was done reading it. And the love she had for her girls was so beautiful. It was like they we’re 3 sisters not a mother and her 2 daughters. She was very strict on education for her girls but in a loving and caring way. If you ever needed someone to talk to or if you ever needed anything she was right there. Not just for her family but for anyone. She will be dearly missed.when my husband took sick. She reached out to me and offered to help in anyway she could even while she was going through a touch time herself being sick. I could go on an on about this beautiful lady. May she Rest In Peace. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Love you my dear sweet neighbor-dear friend. RIP. Love Debbie & Fran and family.
